Rookie (2/14)


Total Watts

  1. Amps with no fans, I played and liked; Trickfish Bullhead .5 and Epifani UL901, lots of power too. I currently have a Markbass LM3 with a very silent fan that never bothers me even when I am playing in a small room at low volume.
  2. The non toroidal is the output transformer, pretty normal, I have an older Laney amp with toroidal mains and non toroidal output transformer. I hand made quite a few replica Marshall amps and nver used toroidal transformers. Pics of one of the "bluesbreaker" combo's I used to build.
  3. One amp repair dude serviced one here in the Netherlands. He was pretty impressed. The measured output was max. 141 watts rms.
  4. Not to sure about that, I had the BG250 112 and that one didn't have enough power but couldn't take an extension cab..
  5. The Epifani went back, the Markbass stayed.
  6. And that even with the gain and master all the way down. I recognise the problem, I tried a Little Marcus 1000 head and there also was hiss all the time. Now I have bought an LMlll and there is almost no hiss. Is this new on your amp or did you change your cabinet?
  7. Well, some retrospect, I sold my MB 121 combo and bought a Vanderkley 112mnt cab. After that I started looking for a new amp. Played, Mesa, Epifani, Trickfish and a MB Little Marcus. But...I still haven't found my new "main" amp so...I just bought a 15 anniversary LMlll, n.o.s. for a steal at Thomann, 333 euro's, because I need an amp in the mean while. The LMlll will stay as a back up no matter what after I have found a new main amp.
  8. Enjoy! Didn't work out for me but your combination of amp and cab is different.
  9. Well the tweeter on the Vanderkley goes to max 16khz. Tried different amps on this cabinet, even today Mesa D800, no hiss at all, MB was hissing even with master volume all the way down. Well I really wanted this amp but cannot accept this anoying hiss in the background all the time even getting worse with the master up. I think it's in the pre amp design, I tried an amp with the same problem recently, EBS Reidmar 750.
  10. The steamhammer is a good solid amp, sounded good with everything flat, when I started tweaking I lost it, I just couldn't dail in another sound I liked. I left the store "dazed and confused"... 😉
  11. Received the little marcus 1000w limited edition today. Great tonal range, pretty quiet fan but...noisy pre amp, compared to the amps I have tested recently, the amp's got a lot of white noise. Even with the master all the way down considerable hiss came from the tweeter, what a bummer. At playing levels it was really bad on my Vanderkley cab. When muted all hiss was gone, I suspect it's the pre amp. Well I put it back in the box and it's on it's way back to Thomann.
  12. Going to give a Glockenklang Steamhammer a try tomorrow. Will share my findings.
  13. Which model do you have? 500, 800, 1000watts? Dennis.
