  • Hi to all

    I am (or rather hoped) to be a new member of the community. I bought second hand a JC20H received yesterday. I have the 2x12 baffle on it's way too. I am a french guitar player and have a few clips there My soundcloud page


    Unfortunately, not exactly what I expected from the videos and sound clips here... The amp is making a loud buzz making it impossible to use clean, and it produces a weird clipping noise used solo with gain past 12 o' clock. My first take is I may have to change all tubes for a start, they may have been damaged in the delivery process (the amp was badly protected).

    I am very interested in all mods alound here.  Something lie the brown sound is appealing to me. AS well as a sort o two channel mod with  clean channel. And as well an effect loop. All these make quite a lot... I will have to choose I guess.... I have yet to finish reading all 64 pages of the topic...


    • Quick question regarding the clean channel mod on the first page for anyone who still follows this thread:

      -Where it says  "You then bypass the original 1m resistor r53 with a 250pf capacitor", is this simply putting a cap in parallel with R53 or "piggybacking" the cap on to it? Or should this resistor be removed entirely?  Thanks for any input.


      • Hello everyone, I'm new here.
        I have an Jca20h, a big amp, but he has a problem that I can not solve, I appreciate if someone can help me.
        Anyone know what may cause the burning of R3 resistor?



        ***Problem solved,  short on R7


        • Does anyone know what mods Hovercraft does to the  JCA20H to make it a Dwarvenaut 20?

          I'm looking at a gut shot and it seem like there i s some sort of double version of the depth mod and  then a voicing switch added to the input jack ..
