where to buy L-pad 50w 16ohm

This might seem like a rather silly question but does anyone know where to buy a L-pad 50watt Attenuator pot in the 16ohm version to use as a master volume mod for a smaller amp. I can see loads of places selling the 8ohm version online but none seem to stock the 16ohm required for most guitar amps?...

Re: Orange Rocker 30 - Pre-amp tube replacement

sometimes i've found that a tech can get the tubes cheaper than i could even online. The best i ever got in my rocker 30C was Harma EL34 retro's and Harma ECC83/7025 drive tested DR250. I got them from watford valves and they put the rocker in a different league! lots of smooth gain and a sparkling ...

Re: rocker vs rockerverb

Well I have owned both the R30c and the RV50c, Had the R30c first and then added the 50. the 50 is a dream amp, but i always felt the 30 had the edge despite my brain tellin me the 50 should be better? In a home situation both amps perform very well at low volumes without any type of attenuator. In ...

The baby blue plugs (http://www.audiorelief.co.uk/shop/index.php?cPath=24&osCsid=ce20c74fa508b35da45f47a4fb54fe43)are great and more discreet, they claim to be for smaller eardrums but i find them fine?

wasnt it les paul himself who said "we all hear with our eyes?" looks about right to me :D playing music is all about feeling and artistic output, If you feel that vintage guitar makes you sound better you probably DO sound better regardless of the actual electronics are probably in worse shape than...

hi there, i have tried using the loop in my rockerverb combo. A good investment if you like the sound of using the loop is a pedal snake. It is one big cable (long length & good quality) with 5 cabes built in. So your footswitch, send, return, input can all be in one cable accross the stage. check t...

I've always had a backup amp which is good enough to gig with i.e. rocker 30 or previously AD15. Sadly i sold both and have my RV50c now so i'm banking on the valve failure fuses for now. reckon I will try and save for a vox ac15cc and have a backup and 2 different sounding amps for the studio. I've...
