  1. 12ax7 instead of 12au7 driver tube in classic - bad news?

    I sold my '92 classic to a guy, and pulled the tubes before shipping.

    He put a 12ax7 in the driver position and told me how 'weird' the amp sounded. Over the phone I made sure he put the 12au7 in...

    TC Electronics repeater + UL = fail

    Used a TC repeater delay pedal in the loop of my '09 Fryette UL, and was having trouble with the lead channel just getting more compressed, not louder. Figured out it was the pedal, no matter how I...

    Will Do Dave, thanks for being a hell of a lot more polite than I was. I will state for the record though that the tone I was getting was the best I've had in recorded history (or my memory, lol) - I...

    I know shit happens, but what drove me NUTS is that I fixed it the first time - replaced the switch, works great. So here's the timeline:

    Freyette UL POS footswitch tanked at gig

    Ok, so I show up friday for a gig. Dial in my 2009 Freyette UL where I want it. Put the amp on standby after soundcheck, go get a beer, relax a bit before we go on.

    Get onstage, first song, time...

    Old 3 channel CLX issue - depth, part II

    So I modded my CLX a bit... put a switch so I could choose the cap on the depth control. Stock is a .022, so I put a three way where I could select .022, .044, or .069. Fired up the amp - no...

    Hey Steve, haven't seen ya in awhile, hope all is going well. EL34Ms from groove tubes, and I had it pretty loud at the gig last weekend, still no depth love.

    Old Classic - depth is not very deep

    Ok, recently picked up an older VHT classic head (even says classic on the plate, instead of CLX - three channel amp, basically a UL with EL34s).

    The Depth control is pretty much bunk - doesn't do...

    VHT 50/CL FS/T with RARE options

    Ok, what's rare? How about EQ? Ok... how about EL34 and 6L6 switch? Ok... how about that plus REVERB? Haven't seen any other ones optioned like this, and reverb and EL34/6L6 switch isn't offered...

    My whole reason for trying to avoid boosting frequencies with cheaper gear is just that it adds a whole lot of noise and screws up phase relationships.

    Try blending them. I ran a stereo rig with 2 4x12s and miked up in the PA a few times, and it really suffered if you were anywhere but center stage. I run mono now and it's not quite as fat, but I...

    Yeah, I still need to convert them to mp3 and also add the same amount of reverb so it's fair. Hope I can remember what the 'verb settings were! ;) Thanks for the kind words.

    I'm actually digging around on the net looking at parts and schematics for tube recording preamps. :) I figure it can't be any more difficult than building a guitar amp. I'd love to have better...

    Yeah, I think if you have nice outboard gear or preamps adding isn't as bad. Our PA is 99% Peavey, so anything I can do to avoid the EQ on it the better.

    Man, it seems like the opposite for me - the 57 that I use has the graininess and the E609 silver is smoother. I used to use two SM57s and run one towards the middle and one towards the edge of a...

    Well, a VHT sounds so huge that you need two microphones to capture the totality of the sound.

    It really embiggened my performance. Some even said that my tone was quite cromulent!

  22. Miking your amp at gigs - what worked for me

    I recently bought an E609 silver, and had an SM57. Ran em both at the gig saturday night. It sounded GREAT... was damn near close to what I was hearing off the cab. The SM57 was on my bottom right...

    Thanks man. A little reverb, nothing else. Tried to keep the post processing to a minimum. Not sure on the amp settings, I know the mids were scooped a bit and the highs and lows pushed.

    75% E609, 25% SM57. The warmth is the 609, the bite and grit is the SM57. I like how the 609 sounds by itself, but it tends to get...

    Dammit! You tried that with the UL, right? Don't you have a deliverance cab? Does that use the P50s?
