Been here a few days. This place seems cool.

After reading threads for a few days, I'd say you guys have the average IQ of most amp/guitar forums beat by at least 20 points...

Very low KTR required here as well. :whistle:

rawk :beavis:

It's all good until you end up under the GAB Manpile.

If you stick around, it WILL happen.

A bunch of really old junk. Most of it broken. The rest, I've hacked up over the years tryin' to make it sound good.

I did just finish converting a circa '1989 Laney AOR 100 into a DIY, turret-board Plexi that fuckin' rules.

Other than that, it's all crap. :lol:

GABmiral is a moniker earned through perseverance, mental toughness and intestinal fortitude. We do not fling that designation around. It is spoken in hushed tones and held in heavenly reverence for those of us with the will and gall to achieve that status.

In other words, we don't fuck around.

I said "Rear GABmiral". I would never sully the lofty Internet forum title of "GABmiral". :notme:

At least, not here.

A Laney/Plexi!?!?! Must be bad ass!
Can you post clips?
GAB posts more clips than any other forum and we must keep up appearances.

The only "Laney" left in her is the iron. It's a stock 2203 spec.

I've tried every mod out there over the years, PPIMV, one-wire, Jose zener diode, Cerrem...

Image

Keep putting it back to stock cuz it sounds awesome that way, just loud as hell.

Image

I prolly have sound clips from before this last rebuild, but I think it's sounds better after replacing those gawdamned phenolic tube sockets with ceramic ones. Also lowered the filtering, which is more of a "feel" thing than changing the sound/tone.

Ceramic sockets sound better than plastic? I'm on board with that!
Sushi tastes better when eaten with chop sticks. Wine takes better when it comes with a real cork. Truth!!!! :thu:

The phenolic(plastic) tube sockets tend to expand and contract with the heating & cooling cycles. When that happens the tubes get shifted around enough for the tube pins to lose their gas-tight seal with the socket connections. More of a power tube issue than pre's.

You start to get all sorts of issues that, at first, look like everything from: a bad tube, cold solder joint, oscillation, etc, etc. :crazy:

After you spend hours trying to track that shit down, then find out that by simply re-seating all the tubes makes the problem go away - upgrading to ceramic tube sockets sounds like a good idea.

Hello from Texas right back atcha!

There are a couple of Houstonians here, a few Dallas people, and a shitload of Austinites, as you might guess.

Very cool!

Wife & I moved from Houston 5 years ago. We're about 1-1/2 hours NW of San Antonio, out in the sticks.

Love the Hill Country. :heart:

So, there's more to a ceramic sockets than just cork sniffing? Good to know! :hi5:
