  1. One to argue that tungsten watts are brighter than led watts?
  2. I've just changed the PP3 in my go-to Warwick only 'cause I had some new ones and I had put the date on when installed, it was July 2015 and it was still tasting salty. It'll find a use in something else.
  3. The pivot hole being so near the edge, the roll pin being an interference fit and the pressure of that big spring does not a good design make.
  4. After my estate car biting the dust last year and only having an MX5 with the passenger seat removed to fit a small cab in I miss having this behind me. I do a dep job with a band with a van occasionally so it gets the cobwebs blown off.
  5. Agree, if I stand 50 feet away from my cab it does not sound as loud as standing next to it.
  6. The 12Ω and 8Ω cabs in parallel will give you 4.8 Ω.
  7. But has it been stolen if Gibson still have it?
  8. The noise when turning the master volume control whilst playing is still there but doesn't affect the sound otherwise. May be a 'design faultfeature'. One thing I have noticed is that I have to use the -15db setting (never use the pad on my other amps) as without it even with the gain low it clips very easily and sounds compressed/squashed (compressor off), is this the 'Dynamizer Technology'? Overall I am happy with the amp and will be keeping it. It is now my mini rig, paired with a recently purchased TC RS212.
  9. In the mid '70s I bought a replacement 'Gibson' mudbucker from Top Gear in Denmark Street, it sounded nothing like the original and when I measured its dc resistance it was 1.5kΩ not the 29-31kΩ that it should have done. I doubt if it was a genuine Gibson as I have never had a Gibson bass with one of these pickups that ever measured less than 29kΩ. I have one from a 60's Epi Rivoli that measures 30kΩ.
  10. I have recently noticed I can not now see forum profile cover photos using IE11. They can be seen using Chrome but it's not my preferred browser. Is this a forum thing or has MS been messing with IE.
  11. Here is an example of Polymorph used to fashion a fader cap on a cocktail stick. This was based on the flat type on my SMX, takes less than a minute. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Thermoworx-Polymorph-mouldable-eco-friendly-thermoplastic/dp/B06XXQ4CZJ/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_lp_t_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=YFSA6HK71XPX056X6BCG
  12. I have used this stuff to mould small plastic parts. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Thermoworx-Polymorph-mouldable-eco-friendly-thermoplastic/dp/B06XY2HX2Y/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_bs_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=SFGMZEB49VDGEM4NJ2S5
  13. In the first pic the yellow (horn) and black with white tape on (speaker + ?) look to be crossed, but if it is working....
  14. Are they working? The wiring to the pc board doesn't look right.
