  1. Good evening all~ Not too long ago, & I'm not sure where, there was a thread about what values to change the Volume & Tone pots to in order to remedy these 2 issues:1) The Volume makes a giant leap up right out of the gates, & by the time you reach 2 or 3, the amp is quickly on its way to full tilt...2)The tone has a great sweep going only, but between 7 & 10, there's a giant leap, & it would be great to make better use it's taper.I s'pose it's the same issus that plagues both controls...Many thanks!!zozoe/Kenny
  2. Hi all~ As I prepare to replace the piece of "you know what' input jack on my Pro Jr., now a Tonedog Pro Sr., I see shunting & nob,,, why and when would I desire or need the shunting type jack for my purpose?? Thnks
  3. BADPENGUINE, you dirty birdy,, Kindly elaborate on what you instructed me to do,, details please.,,,,πŸ€”πŸ™„thnx
  4. Hmmm, so it IS normal!?? I've heard of 50's & 60's wiring that differ in this fashion, but it's too hot today,,, Very cool info,,, Any simple link to the Schematic for independent controls, or both, so I can match my setup? Hey, it's 95 in the shade down here, so yes, a lazy sod i am,,, thnx in advance folksπŸ•‰πŸŽΆ
  5. Good morning all~ Forgive me as it's been a while since I've owned a LP or similar with a standard 2 p/u, 2-Vol,, 2-Tone setup,,, BUT when you're in the middle position and you fully back off the volume of either p/u, is it normal to loose all volume? It's a Dean Hardtail that has had the original p/u's replaced with some X2N clones that sound fine, but I sense that something is amiss... As an aside, the 10.3K Neck p/u is overpowering the 16.6K Bridge, regardless of how much i compensate the p/u heights,,,??.... thnx in advance!!
  6. Mystery solved, & as per Dean, it's from Japan, disco'd in 2008 & not cheap!! Thnx
  7. ,,, As I furthur investigate, I hear described that some models have more elaborate fret inlays up & down, & a unique silver one at the 12th
  8. hiya all,, well G.A.S. has struck again, & I played this super nice, small Dead HD, that had a huge Gibson style velour on the back, & the p/u's had replaced with Dimarzio X2N', a surprisingly, they offered up a great sound in all 3 positions,,, & oh yeah, it weighed a ton... There were no markings or stickers on the back of the headstock telling the country of origin,,, FWIW, ALL of the similar models I've seen online have no volute, & are all marked Korean or Japan.... I'm curious to know what ya'll think,,, I'm certainly no snob to non-USA guitars, as I own 2 Epiphones, one Nighthawk Deluxe made Indonesia, and the other a Jared James Nichols LP Custom that I believe are from China,,, & boy,,, they sound & play better than any Gibson I've tried in the past 30 yrs.,,, So, any more info out there?? Thnx a million~ Did I mention the BIG-ass volute on the back?! πŸ•‰πŸŽΆ
  9. Just after posting, i came across more than I wanted to... I need better saddle height for a better break point,,, so I'll just need to measure then compare, then pray... thnx guys,,, Back to to your Nintendo games.....πŸ˜πŸ‘½
  10. thnx boys, I like to hear about reliable products from reliable ears,,,, not so bad, huh?! πŸ€”
  11. Does anyone sell them, adjustable or non?? Howdo all~
  12. no DADDYMACK, those two bolts are where there used to be a badge for this signature model that was removed.
  13. https://imgur.com/gallery/ozFoPf Finally got this thang down!!
  14. JTR654, & all, thnx, & which brands are out there that might have a tighter fit,, Gotoh, a Schaller, or what have you ? I thinking very strong of getting the right thickness washer, cutting it in half & slipping them under to alleviate the tilt, perhaps give me a better angle over the Saddles,, & perhaps get a reverse tilt going...? I'll try for a better shot, much better πŸ€” If I knew what I was doing, I'd attempt to slightly file the Grooves to add to downward angle towards the backside of each groove...??? thnx again
  15. Good eve' all~ I just got a great guitar that has this beautiful & big adjustable wraparound, in GOLD!,, but it seems like the design of this tailpiece is such that there's no great, distinct angle of the string where it rests in the saddle.. Things sound kinda like my action is set too low, which it's not, & it's a bit muffled, & upon closer inspection, the strings are not seated firmly & again, there's no great angle... Does it sound as if my prognosis is on the money? I see other bridges for sale like the Gotoh 510UB that seem to have slightly higher Saddles & may work out better?.. Here's the best shot I can manage, but it hints to my point,,, I wonder if also swimming the bridge to sit mire level on the posts would help, or am I just better off w/a different bridge altogether? Thnx again all~

  17. When all is said & done, any commentary from any owners of this model on how it feels,, what profile neck, & fret profile does it have,, medium, medium jumbo,, high, low, or what have you? The black & the gold are both very cool looking, but how does it feel, anyone? thnx

    Rectifier Tube Swap

    hi all~ I get it, & you can't simply swap them around w/o some knowledgeable surrounding value changes, but I have an modded Bell & Howell amp the uses 2x6V6, a 6SC7, a 6J7, & a 5Z4 that you could cook a steak on, & the tranny seems to get real toasty as well, & I was thinking of the potato masher 5R4 WGA/WGB rectos, especially due to their over-built-ness,,,, I know that 5U4's are not so easily swapoed due to some electronic config or another, BUT sound & gainwise, what changes could I expect using that particular 5R4 or any other trusty JAN tube or a 5AR4, or whatever,, For whatever it's worth, I'd like to nudge just a touch more gain out of the amp, and temper all that excess heat.. Thoughts & experiences! thnx in advance!!
  19. Well,, I finally got the Triple Shot, & it ended being the ticket.... Thnx πŸŽΆπŸ•‰
  20. Howdy all~ Just as JJ has their EL844 for 'allegedly' earlier breakup, does any maker have the same thing going on for the venerable 6V6? The amp is one of my many fantastic homebrews, with this one having been pulled from an old Bell & Howell projector & brought back to life as a very solid amp, with 2x6V6, 1x6SC7, 1x6J7, & a 5Z4 recto that you could cook a Kobi steak on,,, Amp sounds fantastic w/that classic robust 6V6 sound w/some grain drive,,, BUT, short of having my tech ripping apart this overbuilt chassis again, if i could get the the amp to sound like it's '12' instead of like '9', & nudge up the gain just a smidgen, I'd happy as the day is long!! So again, what's out there in 6V6's that may get me 'there', that are 'rated' on a 1 to 5, or a 1 to 10 scale, & not be a possible 'reject ala the EL844, & still sound good? Maybe a rectifier change & rebias would get me there as well? I don't use OD pedals other than my Barefoot Model G (Gibson) effect, but I don't want to color the sound at all, or get louder,, but just to get a extra tiny touch of drive.... Thnx well, & be well~ kenny πŸ•‰πŸŽΆ
  21. Yeah, I'm kinda hooked on colour specifics here, & I don't care to wait 6 months for SD to resume production, but I want your CREAM, TREMBUCKER, P-RAILS for BRIDGE... Be well all!! πŸ•‰πŸŽΆ kslewitt@gmail.com
  22. Found it!!, & right on their site, & after being told by them that didn't have it & couldn't help... Swell folks, & I sent it along to them... I would've eventually figured it out, but I like schematics,,, peace all~
  23. Daddymack, kindly refer to my original post to see exactly what I'm after.... "I presently have a SH4 HB connected to a simple Volume with a push/pull to take me from full HB mode, & to only the N coil... What I want is exactly what that schematic shows, a SERIES/SINGLE/PARALLEL 3-way switch, BUT to add & use my existing push/pull pot somewhere in the circuit to choose either the North or South coil when i'm in the middle single coil position of that 3-way..." Thnx
  24. HERE'S the right schematic & I'd like for someone to pencil in where I could insert my Push/Pull & Volume pot, instead of the Volume pictured, so I can select the North or South coil when the on/on/on is in the middle (single) position? I would assume there has to be someone who could give me proper direction with this for my SH4 project..? Thnx!! Thnx again!!
