    Best Kluson tuners?

    I'm wondering if any vintage-correct Kluson/Kluson-type tuners have come up (in appearance, may be better functionally) or should I stick to the original ones on my '07 R9 - which I believe are made by Gotoh? I also have another set from a '94 LP, would these be the same? Thanks!

    I have a Bassman clone, basically a 5F6a circuit. I also have a nice pair of NOS Tung Sol 5881's. Is it safe to drop these in, or is the circuit designed to use 6L6GC's? Please help I'm confused.

    Ghost Blues

    I have finally had a go at it and recorded some short takes with Ghostie. I was just noodling around with a theme that was in my head so here is a short one, warts and all. No effects or reverb. Turned out cleaner than i thought, possibly 'cos i couldn't really crank it, it's on less than 2...

    Has anyone tried the Eminence Legend GB 128 in a 4 x 12 (closed) cab? This speaker has got good reviews on HC and elsewhere and even mentioned in the TQR. It's now only available in 8 Ohms and it's a 50W'er = 200W in cab. I'm intending to replace the old Celestion Greenback G12H-30's for use...

    Low output mid position

    Can someone please help? I just wired my friend's Gibson Invader with new pots and a new bridge pickup. The toggle switch works fine. The pickups sound great on their own but it's a low output with both on. Tested with a meter the mid pos is nearly 4k so it looks good. The pickups read...
