    '71 Marshall JMP50 - hums when switched ON.

    Went to play the old '71 JMP50 today and after letting her warm up for a minute, I threw the Standby switch to ON and she produced a loud hum for about 5 seconds, then the hum faded away. After that, she played fine, no humming. The filter caps are the original DALY 50x50 from 1971, making...

    Need Help Mounting Pickgaurd

    Last year I purchasd a 2014 R8 that came without the pickgaurd attached, no holes drilled. Drilling the hole near the neck seems like a no brainier, place the new pickgaurd on the guitar and use the hole in the pickgaurd as a guide. It's the hole that goes through the binding on the...

    My 2061X Acted Up Last Night, Today It's Fine...

    Played a gig last night with my 2061X RI plugged into one 1974CX cab. At the end of the night, right before the last song, a loud high pitched squeal came out of the amp. Turned it off, turned it back on, squeal was still present. The squeal went away when I turned the volume on the amp...

    Echoplex EP1

    Picked up an Echoplex EP1 today off Craigslist. Bought it without trying as the price was too good to pass up. Took it home, hooked it up and of course it doesn't work. Motor spins, tape moves, all three tubes light but no echo and the straight signal sounds as if the volume is set to...

    Ultimate Attenuator

    Several years ago, the Ultimate Attenuator was the rage. Then there was lots of dicussion that it was not a true attenator, but a 30 ohm load resistor with a solid state re-amp. Haven't heard much about it lately, and the email address on the website comes back "Your message wasn't delivered...

    Looking to add compression to my live rig. I have an old MXR Dyna Comp but was looking for something with less hiss. I know the dbx 160 series was popular with the rack guys back in the 80's. Does anyone still use a dbx rack compressor, like the 160X or 160XT? I read the online owners's...

    I'm looking at a 1957 Junior available locally. It has been refinished. I'm pretty sure I know what the value would be if it WASN'T refinished, but how much does the refin devalue it? A few more things to consider; the fretboard is VERY light, the lightest I've ever seen, a light brown...
