    Amp/Speaker/Ohmage question

    Note what cynic means by "closest". If you measure the resistance of a 16 "ohm" cab, it will be actually be a bit less; 14.7 or so. (The rest is reactance, but it's all rolled into impedence, blah, blah, blah.)

    New acquisition: 2 Scepter

    CDE is the original manufacturer (cornell-dubilier electronics) and the in-spec variance is 10%. The more critical info is probably on the other side, voltage(max) and cap value itself. Looks like an axial polyester film cap. Where? If common, guitar parts online. If not, some place like Mouser.

    RIP Fender MIM

    Paradigm Shift is the one that has always made me grit my teeth.

    Hamer Monaco Subtone

    That was TJ (tonejunkie). Still kicking myself for not getting in on the sale. Did manage to snag another of his I mised when new owner decided to sell a few years later. One of 3 all spruce tops Newports painted black. True baseball neck.
  5. I have Two DTMs, and they are indeed TOP SHELF. Dave's manic attention to detail is well known. GLWTS

    Microphonic Minihums

    Thanks. I like sea otters too.

    Microphonic Minihums

    How low? Found some that melts at 130 F. After doing some reading, was amazed to learn that body temp "paraffin" is actually "petroleum jelly" (pure hydrocarbon, no additives). You can tweak the paraffin melting point by adding in a bit of p jelly.

    Microphonic Minihums

    Wow, had no idea. Did they do the same with the T-top buckers? Have one that also sounds great but with the same issue. (It so does TSRtS-era Led Zep)

    Microphonic Minihums

    Ahhhh, so it's a physical resonance vibration thingy. Thanks!

    Microphonic Minihums

    Got an early 90s Gibson LP Special DC that has a set of Gibson minihums taken out of an early 70s LP Deluxe. Previous owner had the work done. They sound really great, but once I get past any breakup and dive into distortion, they squeeel like a pig. Any solutions that don't involve wax potting? Would rather not go there. Thanks!

    Skynyrd announces final tour

    Yepp. Saw them in 76, and they were on fire.
  12. Aerosmith/Lynyrd Skynyrd/Ted Nugent/Nazareth (RFK 76). Was a big fan of Aerosmith, but Lynyrd blew them all off the stage. Wolfmother TBD
  13. Sounds like a neck pup to me. He normally used a HB-bridge loaded Strat, but that doesn't sound like a SC pup. From the cover of the EP you can see the edge of an LP. Found a full pic of it (on pinterest but can't seem to link to it). Looks kind of like a stripped LP Deluxe with mini bucker in bridge but some blade pup in the neck.
  14. Imho, Deadmen Tell No Tales from that EP is the definitive Motorhead track. They were just on fire.
