  1. I've always liked the punch of 4x10"s, Jensen P10R's, but don't want to lose too much of that sweet low end & overall beauty that the G12H30-55 is famous for!!??? Truly different animals? Thanks~
  2. I know this is the guitar thread, but maybe I can get a bite here... I eed help....😏... L20T 4x10 or 1x12, both used UK Made? The 4x10 P10R's is less than 1/2 the price of the 1x12 G12H30-55, but it's more of a back-breaker, though either amp will really be going out much, if at all. Pluses, drawbacks, favourites out there? Much obliged. FWIW I've owned L5T head & combos, & a L20H head.

  4. My decision has finally come down to these 3.....Tonerider Hot90's, Bareknuckle Nantuckets, Vintage Vibe P90's. They'd be going into the B + N of my beloved Strat with a 8.7k Dimarzio SDS1 in the middle. Looking for some rockin' blues sounds, & borderline punk tones thru my Mesa DC3 1x12 combo. Nothing to heavy or over the edge. I'm not really playing out, so it's just for my at home entertainment, trying to get close to my 59 LP Special & 57 Junior. Money's not terribly an issue, but there is a big spread between the TR's & the Bareknuckle's!! Any thoughts or advice to be given? Thanks all!!
  5. SDS-1 woes aside, which P90's do folks around here like for bridge & neck in a rosewood neck Strat with new Blender Pot harness. Since my middle SDS1 is kinda hot @ 8.6k, I'm thinking of some Vintage SD's, or some Hot Toneriders my pal raves about. Fralin, Antiquities & Lollars are probably only a little bit better but at a big price diff. I don't want anything too dark & murky.... not too hot & muddy. But I'm open to suggestions & eager to hear from ya'll. Thanks
  6. Hey DADDYMACK... I'll be using 2 500k pots, Blender pot & a 5 way. It's not an SD Super Distortion, it's the single coil SDS-1, not stacked or anything,,,, just a SC. If the black & white are both normal outs (hot), where do they go?
  7. [h=3]Member[/h] Hi. I recently picked up an older SDS1 that has a total of 4 wires: bare, black, green & white. It will be going into the middle position opposite 2 P90's. 10 different blogs have 15 differing answers as to what's what. I was under the impression that it was a single coil p/u, so I'm a little confused. Bare is obviously ground, but what about the other 3? Is one left taped off, & is there the option that there are two hots, with one of them being a lower output lead? I'm lost...the p/u is in transit so I can't measure stuff. But what's the general layout of my four leads? Thanks all~~
  8. I'm looking for some p/u height screws for Dimarzio, Fender or SD pups with a 'domed' top, not just oval or simply rounded, but totally above the pickguard 'domed'. N/A at Home Depot. Thanks, kenny 🕉
  9. SOVTEK or JJ's EL84's for my hot running Mesa DC3 COMBO? And why? Thanks kenny 🕉
  10. I have a Strat with single coil pups in neck & middle, along with a SD Lil 59 in the bridge & a 5-way selector, and one volume & one tone control. I want to wire it so ONLY the bridge pu is affected by the tone control, AND i want a very mild tone cut. Could one of my fellow members please send me a detailed schematic on how this is done, as well as suggest what type of cap & what value i should try. Again, i seek a VERY subtle tone cut, and just maybe a tone bleed to save the highs when vol. rolled down. Many thanks in advance.
  11. I think I've boiled it down to either of these two. Any experienced ears out there? Many thanks~
  12. Could someone please re-post the recommended tube swaps in V1 thru V6 for taming the OD & give you better use of the volume controls & tone?!! Many thanks in advance!! peace
  13. Anyone out there with any up close experiences with these 2 combos? One uses EL34's & the Vox uses their signature EL84's. Which one would offer more clean headroom? Thanks all!!
  14. As I begin my search for another Blues Jr. 'Relic' to replace the one I sold, I'm overwhelmed by the so many other BJ models. Which ones have been proven to be better made & the most reliable, if any. Most of them are made in Mexico, but I did see one in black marked made in the USA. That kinda caught my attention, but who knows if it stands out. Any experienced users out there that can help me sort out this import/export, tweed/tolex, Jensen/Eminence/Fender speaker mess. I want reliability & great drive like I remember. (Don't we all!!) Thanks in advance to all you rockers!! Kenny
  15. Again , this is the RELIC model that came with the faux coffee stain on top, and i believe it came stock with a P12R! Thanks all~~

  17. Just pick up a Fender Blues Jr. Relic 15w amp & want to get new tubes. Who's making the latest & greatest these days? Are JJ EL84's still any good? Looking for nice gain AX7's, but quiet. The 84's should be sweet sounding & solid & long lasting eith moderate use. And where to buy. Thanks for all suggestions!
  18. I just picked up a Fender Blues Jr. Relic model 15 watts, and it needs a speaker. This model originally came with a newer Jensen P12R and it sounded great!! So, who makes a good speaker that best emulates that woody O/D'n sound of the good old Jensen P12R or P12Q? Weber makes a speaker for $63,, Mojotone prob. makes one, along with many others, as well as finding an old Jensen on Ebay. I'd like to avoid such affects like speaker howl when I do some some controlled feedback stuff. Any suggestions out there from some of you experienced ears out there? Thanks in advance for any advice!! Happy rockin'~
