  1. That's a great idea. I can think of several applications where that could be very useful.
  2. Thank you Craig, for sharing that experience. Music has long been a way for people to connect to The Divine (regardless of what one believes that to be) and to each other.
  3. Thanks for that Phil - lots of good advice in there
  4. would be one of those players who would miss the rhythm circuit but, with modern channel switching amplifiers and quality stomp boxes, it is not as much of an advantage as it used to be. I do like moving the toggle switch off the lower bout. I'd like to hear the pickups. I like the old JM pickups so, based on your review, I should really like the new ones. Is there much noise?

  5. Although it involves opening up the amp, replacing the linear taper 100K Reverb control with an audio taper pot can make the control seem less "sensitive." Using a lower gain driver tube as suggested, reduces the S/N in the reverb circuit making it a bit more noisy. FYI, the Reverb retrun circuit on a Fender amp is sensitive enough to plug a guitar into. Another "trick" is to bring the signal from the Reverb tank back into the amp via the Normal Channel input to gain more control over the over all sound of the reverb and take advantage of the audio taper Volume control.
  6. How is it for feedback? Did you get to try playing it loud?
