I believe I heard that amp on one of your vids, and it killed. I have iron from a jet city 20w might need to pester you when I decide to do a build with it.
BTW I've seen a few of those (Friedman) modded, and it looked like the presence trace was cut. Whats up with that? too bright or something?

There is definitely an art to his sound. I spoken to him too many times to count and he helped me with a Jose mod on an amp. I couldn’t get it to sound right...and I’m not a newb when it comes to tinkering. We tried everything. Some amps just don’t work and I don’t have the insight to make a turd into a gem. The funny thing is the stock amp sounds killer without mods. I figured it would kill modded.

The only amp I had 100% success with was a Jet City 20 watter. I did the basic mods and Mark helped me tone shape. After months of tinkering I’ve stopped and am completely happy with it. The amp kills. I’d have to say a really interesting thing is trying different manufacturers for the same part. For example, on the depth pot I tried so many different values from 570 to .0066. I couldn’t get anything to have “that” sound I was looking for. Then I was digging in my old parts drawer (keep in mind I’ve tinkered with amps for 20+ years) and came across an old Erie red ceramic cap that was .003uf. BOOM, the amp had this crunchy smooth sound it was missing. So I found another old Erie cap exactly the same as the other, but had a value of .0047uf. It was close, but that .003 was the magic. Everyone talks about schematics and layouts and something as small as a single part made such a difference...of course it’s the sum of all parts, but the fine tuning is where the magic comes in. This is why Mark has a hard time making mass produced amps. He has to play and fine tune each amp. This makes for some differences between amp, but each amp is now custom. With that I can say that I had the #3 CCV next to mine, which is probably #20+, and both amps sounded 99% the same. The last 1% was probably tubes or knob placement, etc.


Without question. I've only talked to him a couple times, but he was telling me the idea of the original CCVs was that he would talk with the customer and each one would be tweaked to what that person was looking for. The Brad era stuff were the amps that were "standardized" and mostly all the same.

I am curious to see how the NFB section works out on this amp, and suspect I will be playing with values for a bit on that :lol: :LOL:

Literally the only place the small turrets were a GOOD thing :lol: :LOL: They are literally the perfect size for that rectifier. Also, teflon insulated wire kicks MAJOR ass. I am loving the stuff.

Hope we can get thru this thread and just focus on the amp and the great tones and avoid any talk of the past. Not expecting miracles..

With that said, awesome that you are doing your own build and cool he helped you with some of the issues. I've said it before many times on this forum, that Aldrich tone was my dream tone for years and as I tried to buy Cameron amps from friends, they would not part with them. LOL!

I have heard great amps and have heard great tones but to this day, nothing can touch the first time I heard my buddy's Aldrich in person. It captured the tones I heard in Doug Aldrich's own Cameron that I had seen in a DVD when he was in DIO. That oversaturated crunch is just unreal.

That crunch gives me goosebumps when I hear it !

Great. Now I have to add an Aldrich to the list of amps to build. Thanks Dave.

Thanks everybody! Faceplates should be here this week I believe and once those are on I can start making some progress getting everything wired up. Sort of holding off at the moment as I don't really want to start wiring stuff I'm going to have to take apart to put the plates on.

Amp is officially named The Old One.

It’s a 1972 Marshall Super Lead. Mark modded it back in 2011

Here was a fun clip I did trying to get the tone of the Maxwatt amp. I copped a few riffs from that thread too. Haha

That sounds killer. I'll always say, no other modded Marshall can touch the Cams that I've owned. Unique and killer.

Agreed. I’ve had several modded Marshall’s by Gower (KK++ and Rockmonster), Friedman (BE/HBE), Kruse (V5) and tried a bunch others and the 3 Cameron mods I have are in another league. They’ve also sent packing my Mezzabarba, Metroplex, Big Tone, Helios and others I’m forgetting. Didn’t you say though that the Golub to you sounded almost the same as the Aldrich? I haven’t tried that one before

The only other modders I’m somewhat curious about now are Caswell and Hopkins

Seems some people just like being part of some sort of posse. The 'burn MC at the stake for anything I read on the internet' posse.

Really looking forward to this build techno. I'm sure I'll try to make one but I've got a Wizard MC build (or rather, RE-build of another amp I made) planned first.

Yep... apparently everyone can just go out now and buy a Bogner Uberschall or XTC as they sound the same as a Cameron Marshall mod.

I read on TGP... so it has to be true right?

I’d love to provide my honest opinion, but I was banned on TGP years ago for quoting someone and saying the exact thing back. They claimed I was attacking people. lol

So I lied about the update... my wife decided she wanted to do stuff today so my free afternoon got booked :lol: :LOL:

The power transformer is mostly wired up, and I'm about half way through wiring up the AC heaters on the power tubes and phase inverter. I'll post an update later this week once I get the heaters all wired up. I'm hoping I can make a lot of progress after work this week since the wife is going to be out of town :D

Yeah, I'm not going to go into any details but years ago that was a REALLY sore subject because alot of bad things happened. I'll leave it at that and will add that so many of us love that tone and would love one of those amps.

I'm really excited about this amp build just to see if it can capture what I used to hear as "god tone". Like I have said before, no amp has ever captured the "tone in my head" like the Cameron Aldrich.

Omfg Cameron's Aldrich mod is my favourite amongst his mods!

Will monitor this thread like a hawk.

I did not say this. You quoted the wrong user. Go look again.

Other than that, welcome. :)

SBO, I am just curious how did you hear about us, Mark or our amp company? Was it the profiles or something else?

Thanks :thumbsup:

I suspect the NFB section will be some trial and error but I think what I'm doing will work in general. It's all standard stuff just suspect the values for the presence will need played with and I may want to up the value of the Response pot for more range (starting with 100k).

Nice!

What gauge is the AC heater wire on the Pi, and Power Tubes? Looks tiny, keep in mind there will be over 6amps pulled from that string. It might be fine for such a short distance, but I would pop tubes in and light up the heaters, and see if you get any heater voltage drop at the PI.

I thought I read he was using tefzel has a really thin insulation. Looks smaller.

The heater wire is 20 gauge, everything else is 22. The Tefzel wire really does look thin.

I'll be verifying everything on this as I go, got a bunch of things I want to check once everything is wired up. :thumbsup:

Wish I could build amps, would be so badass.

I will say comparing to the video in here, the Aldrich Modded Marshall. My Rev 2 does sound similar. Not exact but definitely in the same ballpark.

I’d love to know enough to build and tweak amps too...maybe a bunch of us should do a group buy for Bruce Egnater’s amp building class... I’ve heard great things from a few members here that have done it... any interest ?

I would totally do that. I've built a few, modded more than I've built, but mostly just a tinkerer. It would have to be sometime I'm not tied up at work (December's about the only time I'm mostly sure about having free time this year), but I would love to do something like that. I've thought about going to one of those seminars, Egnater and several others, for years, just never did. This would be a great excuse to finally do it!

Beautiful! That’s it, that is THE tone!
Holy smokes, he plays with a ton of gain!

I've always noticed that when guys play live, they use quite a bit more gain than what they use in the studio.

The suhr guy said that he recently serviced those marshalls doug uses live to reduce the gain as he is using pedals these days

Make sure to keep wire length to a minimum and loops small.
