This is where I tell you what I really think. This website doesn’t support comments by design, that is what your blog is for!

  1. Pedalboard on workbench with a tuner, A/B box, boost pedal and bass preamp
  2. Modded K&K preamp on top of amplifier
  3. Tremolo effects unit
  4. Telectro AS 360 badge and grill cloth detail
  5. 1963 Fender Bandmaster in a 2x10 combo cabinet

    Phantom Crackle

    My buddy Ivan uses this combo-ified 1963 Band-Master as his backup. It suffered from a phantom crackle that would only appear after being warmed up for an hour or two. It had been in and out of another shop for over a year, and the problem was never successfully addressed.

  6. Burned relay and wire resistor
  7. Early 60s Fender Bandmaster chassis
  8. Silverface Fender Champ circuit

    Sliver-Face Champ

    About three or four years ago, I found myself falling down a rabbit hole of tube amp repair videos. It started innocently enough with the humble idea of building a custom foot-switchable preamp/mixer for my double bass. That lead to me building a few guitar stomp boxes. Before I knew it, I was watching hours and hours of tube amp repair videos every week.
