  1. Mojo kits are fine. The 18 watt kits are pretty much the same. The Heyboer transformers are very good. I used them in my 18 and 36 watt amps. Build it and if you have any questions about tweaking it contact me. I use different values in the tone stack than most kits provide. I have tweaked many 18 watt amps for people, Ceriatone, Goodsell, DrZ, etc. oh, yes. Speaker selection is critical to maximize the tonal bliss available from these babies.
  2. It was a DAM... I asked 500.00. Got several offers a little short of that within an hour It sold for asking price.
  3. I had the Tone Bender Mark IV for about a year. It’s the most expensive but also the best sounding fuzz I have owned. I had several Analogman iterations, both Germanium & Silicon based and while they were excellent, the Original was just that much better. I put it up on Reverb last night and it sold in 3 hrs. Maybe I didn’t ask for enough, who knows. Not everybody is into fuzz and there are many different types, octave fuzz, fuzzface, Tone Benders, different Big Muffs, etc, enough to make you crazy. What are some of your favorites?
  4. When I want some thicker tones without pedals I pick up and play my Gretsch. Neck pickup does it nicely.
  5. I’m a big believer and user of the Celestion G12H made in UK version. I used them in my 18 Watt Amps when I was building them, after trying a Crap load of others. They work really well with Marshall style amps. It is a rabbit hole &, extremely subjective further complicated because all amps work better with certain speakers. We know this yet still pursue the tone in our heads. Enjoy the journey!
  6. I had several pedals on Reverb a few weeks ago and noticed 2 of them were turned right around and put back up for sale as soon as the buyer got them. If they get their price they might net $10-15.00 for their efforts. Buy, try, quick turnaround or trying to turn a quick 💵? Almost like the early days of EBay.
  7. Should I build another PLEXI or....

  8. This is mission impossible. I just sold off a bunch of transformers I had lying around to accumulate cash for a purchase. I need to sell off My Sheraton and a few more amp parts I have lying around to have the amount I need. It never ends.........
  9. If you get them don't play in front of under aged girls and you should be fine.
  10. Yes, I'm interested in your report as well. I've installed BillM mods in several BJ's and had some happy customers. I put a Cannabis Rex in one and a 30 watt Greenback in another.(Whatever the customer wants I do). Anyway, with the Cannabis Rex the amp is extremly loud( 102db efficiency rating) and when combined with the basic mods increases clean headroom a bunch. It still broke up plenty when cranked and he learned to control OD with the volume knob on his guitar. He gigs with it on a regular basis. The Cannabis Rex is an unsung speaker, once is breaks in it sounds really good with mos
  11. Holy Moly!!!!!!!! Chord Chemistry, and what looks like an original copy. I had that and another from the same publisher called "Quadraponic Fingering" by Mitch Holder. I had learned all that stuff back in the day. Then I quit playing for 15 years. DOH!!!!
  12. Mine is self explanatory. I home brewed for years. I don't have the space any longer and I don't drink that much anymore. With the advent of the microbreweries there are plenty of high quality beers around these days so if I want a beer that is as good as one of mine was the odds are much better I'll find something.
  13. I actually found a replacement stylus for 39.99 @ J&R Music World. http://www.jr.com/shure/pe/SHU_N97XE/ The new cartridge there is 54.99 so why bother with just the stylus to save 15.00. I didn't buy either yet but now that you mentioned the SAS stylus I will wait a little longer.
  14. I ended up with the AT LP120. I ordered the AT95e cart right away. With I saw the recommended tracking force for the AT2 that came with the TT I cringed. I'll also ordered a replacement stylus for the Shure M97ex cart I have. The other POS TT I had chewed it up. I'll mount it on a spare head shell and then do some A/B comparisons in my spare time. A separate phono preamp is also in my future.
  15. Green ink Smoked glass and Blackplates are RCA manufactured for Sylvania and are most likely late 50's but why pick at nits. Those tubes are the smooth and creamy, same as the RCA black plates. The best of the best IMHO. The grey plates, clear glass, are great tubes as well and some actually prefer them.
