What a great sounding amp!
I was wondering which circuit I should build next and I think it's gotta be one of these, (minus the Trem).
I know it won't sound like that but if it comes even remotely close I'll be happy.
Enjoy it in good health, cheers, Steve
Very nice playing by Dan I have # 70xx and love it !
to the forum.
Is that you and your amp?
Just posting an interesting video?
Got one like it?
This one will probably be from the first batch with a 70XX serial number.
Not mine, I should have clarified. I play 1987s but am a huge fan of the JTM45 style circuits as well. Best of luck with your build!
Thanks for the welcome. And unfortunately, not mine but thought the video would be of interest.
I enjoyed the video, very honest and relaxed.
The guys were feeling their way on unfamiliar territory and acknowledged where they would look stuff up that sad gits like me have in their heads (Mullard valve factory and Phillips mustard date codes)
I presume you knew that the trem only works on channel 2 on these (most of us plug into channel 1 and you do get a bit of bleed). For best tones à bias check is always worth doing too.
Thanks for sharing a beautiful old amp.
I would have sent the speaker to this guy. He restored my speakers and repaired a tear in the diaphragm without reconing anything. I don't think I'd want him hot glueing my vintage/antique speaker. Nice sounding amp.
Yeah there are better ways to do it. If you've got a donor cone you can add some fine layers of it over the tear and it's near invisible if the donor cone is a good match. Pleximaster showed us how to do it on here a few years ago.
I think those 'received by' date stamps on the gasket are from the Selmer factory. They only seem to turn up on Selmer speaker models. Could be wrong though.
