I just got a "12 Celestion Blue for my Vibrolux. I'm gonna get a 10" Tone Tubby to go with it. The vibrolux came stock with those reissue Jenson P10's and I ended up blowing them while using THD Yellowjackets at a recording session. Anyway, I'm not sure if I should go with an Alnico or Ceramic Tone ...

I'm not actually sure it went bad. All I know is that when I switched on the amp the rectifier lit up, but I saw no indicator light, got no sound, and the pre and power tubes were not lit. Then I looked inside and found the capacitor tweeked over to the side hanging off of the board with only one le...

None taken. I've done a lot of traveling with this little amp and it probably just needed a little help to break loose and my basement I did a little searching for a capacitor with the cryptic info on it. It says "100uF 6 3 V(RE)" and "-40+85 degree" and "(M)1485." I found a Nichicon UVR Radial Alum...

I got this '63 Diamond Ranger electric guitar for Christmas a few years back. This is a random Italian company that made accordians primarily. It's got vegi-matic style pick-up selectors, half the body is plastic the other half is particle board. It's got an old-school tremelo with little wheels on ...

Well, I took a look inside and the little black thing that reads 100u 6 3 V(RE) was dangling in there. It looked like it was just yanked out. I have no idea how this happened. I do have some eccentric friends, but I'm assuming I need a new one of those, then? It's located right below the el84 socket...

Oh, by the way, it has been picking up a bit more interference/noise in the last few months than usual. It has JJ el84's, Sovtek 12AX7WA's, and a JJ GZ34S rectifier. All the JJ's are under a year old. Hope some of this might help.

Well, I just got back from a long weekend at the in-laws and was hoping to start stompin' some blues in my basement, but when I flipped the switch the heart-warming orange glow did not fill the room. Everything was plugged in properly, tubes all snug, but no nothing. The bulb in the orange indicator...

I went on a hunt a few years ago, tired of my nasally, short-ranged cry baby and I fell in love with the Vox Clyde McCoy. I play it through an AD15 and a Fender Vibrolux and it's nice and full, never too harsh, no dead spots, and I've dragged it around to gigs for the last couple of years and it has...

I've been using one of these for about two years. I got tired of my Tube Screamer sucking out the low end and found this little gem. It's sturdy, has a broad range of tone between the clean and gain channels and the volume goes high enough to boost your signal significantly. Good luck.

I've been gigging off and with my AD15 for about four years or more. Venues with 50 to 300 people don't present much of a volume problem. When you get into a bigger room the sound guy will probably want to mic you anyway. Remember, amps always sound better cranked and if you get too big of an amp fo...

Anyone here used a VHT Valvulator 1? I've had one for a few months and it cleans up my signal, powers four DC outputs at 12v, ground lift switch, and two 1/4 outputs. It changes your signal from high impedence to low impedence to reduce noise in your effects, plus it's got a 12Ax7 in it. I'd recomen...

Los Lobos used to use them back in the day, but I think they use Top Hat now.

Gearnut, know any stores online with good prices on those Ei's? I recently found an old Altec amp at my church full of RCA's. I found an RCA and an Amperex 5751, two RCA 6CG7s (brit) and an RCA 5U4 rectifier (usa). Think these are any good?
