    Recent R9s / R8s with darker "wine red" back color

    Count me as not a fan either, my R0 60th is so dark in places you cannot see the wood at all, coupled with some less than perfect binding leaves me wondering about buying another new one. I might stick to good used from 13/14/15 years, wood seems a different quality as well on the newer ones.

    Boost pedals, which one do you play?

    Me like the Timmy, only just got one about a month ago, if I was after just a boost I think it fits the bill nicely. I managed to get the boosted tone to remain pretty much like the unboosted quite quickly, and it’s got something in it boost that I have not got from any other pedal. But, and...

    Just bought a T-top and nearly necro’d a 12 year old topic, google you suck.

Also twisting the input jack cover around 45 deg for version pre ’72, the other thing I want to do...

    Caps, the truth is out there.

    Did a bit of research as was after a .015uf cap, basically wondering if electronic shops sell interesting caps at less cost than the boutique makers. I found this very interesting article: http://zerocapcable.com/?page_id=224 so any cap in spec will sound the same. Good to know.

    Short shaft cts pots.

    About 15 years ago I had the harebrained idea of fitting vintage parts to a les Paul standard, hadn’t really picked up on the whole historic thing at that time. So not really knowing what the hell I was doing I ordered 4 cts pots from an eBay seller in the ‘states, listed as removed from a 335...

    Marshall Origin 5 - quart into pint pot

    Seeing how a lot of people seem to think the 8in speaker is not cool in a valve combo I decided to experiment with a 10in one. Had a look at a few celestions and picked a 16 ohm 10in creamback. Bit of a rough and ready 'proof of concept' so far. back of speaker just clears the main chassis. But...
