    Diezel VH4 Negative Feedback switch - how much voltage?

    I drill a small pilot hole dead center and finish the hole off with a step bit. The step bit will center itself in the hole in the chassis.

    Diezel VH4 Negative Feedback switch - how much voltage?

    I’ve used Carling and Taiway mini toggles for NFB switches for years with not one issue. I make them 3 way, 4, 8, 16 ohm AND add a NFB pot. Some people say 8 ohm with more NFB resistance is equal to say 4 ohm with less resistance. Example 4ohm/47k vs 8ohm/68k. But I don’t agree and I still hear...

    Which G12H-30 are the ones to get?

    Anniversaries are my favorite speaker. Had mine well broken in by Scumback. If I were buying new I’d go through Avatar and get their Made in England broken in version.

    Wall O’ Marshall

    Yeah they're surprisingly sturdy. I've been using them for years now with zero issues.

    Yes, could definitely be done on that platform.

    1982 JCM 800 2204 MOAB mod YouTube clip - RT member build

    I have a day job. Unfortunately living in Southern California, the cost of living is extremely high and I couldn't survive on amp work alone. Although I really love doing it. It's definitely a passion for me. I essentially started modding amps because I couldn't find an amp out there that...

    I've had it with shipping companies man-handling packages like bloody apes!

    FedEx destroyed the last two packages I sent. Been using UPS and crossing my fingers.

    1982 JCM 800 2204 MOAB mod YouTube clip - RT member build

    Wow. That’s about the best comment I could ever ask for. Thanks so much. It means a lot. I put tons of time and effort into tweaking each amp individually as they are all different. I’ve spent the past two days just playing, listening and adjusting it. I usually put more time into that than the...

    1982 JCM 800 2204 MOAB mod YouTube clip - RT member build

    Just completed this killer 2204 for a Rig Talk member. Came out fantastic. I really like the results with the 50w circuit. Super punchy mid gain settings in this clip. It’ll get higher gain and more modern. This is just a good, percussive tone with lots of clarity and attack.

    Master Effects PMEQ...Master of Puppets studio EQ pedal

    I got one. Sounds great! I still haven’t used mine with my iic++ yet though. That’s really what I bought it for. Psychodave made a separate thread with clips. Check that out.

    Ground Zero Amplification modded JCM 800 "MOAB"

    I’m glad you caught that. I was hoping someone would ha. I had thought of this a long time ago and totally forgot about it. The control really does work like the best attenuator ever. Put it at 9 o clock and you’ll get great tones at serious whisper volumes.

    Ground Zero Amplification modded JCM 800 "MOAB"

    Here’s some pics of another one I just got done with today. It’s really simple. Yet really covers a wide range of tones. Both amps in this thread are 2203’s. I’ll be doing a 2204 with this mod soon.

    OPINION: Modern Charvels aren't that good

    The 2012 has an R3 nut. I spent probably 40 hours on the guitar dialing it in but it's absolutely amazing now. The biggest issue I have with these Music Zoo Nitro Aged Charvel is the Floyd height. Both of mine were so far off the body. On the 2012 I used a Stew Mac full pocket neck shim, but...

    OPINION: Modern Charvels aren't that good

    I love the Nitro Aged Custom Shops. I have a 2012 in Arctic White and just picked up a 2022 in Vanilla Shake with roasted neck/ body. Both 1 3/4” wide nuts.

    Dan has passed

    This is insane. Sad and so sudden. Was he only in his early 50's? I'm assuming 1971 is his birth year.

    The Wima MKS caps are great for cathode bypass. That's what I use a lot.

    New song! (Larry content)

    The Roxy is such a good pickup. I have one in my Historic Makeovers R9 right now. Great output yet not overly bassy. Very clear and articulate.
