I'm curious to see how apple stock responds. Its a pretty sensitive stock even to small public announcements.


Well Samsung stock rose a good deal. People seem to be insinuating that Apple lost its creative edge with his death. Apple's main competitor for smartphones and tables (samsung) is benefiting.

I'm pretty sure Motorola is also getting a chuckle considering the lawsuits.

fun fact: Apple won a lawsuit banning Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablets in all of europe, except for the Netherlands.

How much you selling it for?


Hey, Wes! Haven't seen ya for a bit!
I'm trying to get around $1750 for the head, but I'd throw in the 2X12 Mojave cab for $2100 total. Won't sell just the cab. It's pretty killer, loaded with G12H30s. Head & cab are mint condition.
New head is $2745, cab is $679.

I'm selling the Scorpion because I want to get a custom amp from Mike Soldano that I spoke to him about 2 weeks ago. I'm getting a 20W Astroverb 1X12 combo amp modded with an extra preamp stage & tweaked to emulate an SLO. Basically a 20W SLO sound with reverb, & covered in sky blue tolex. Perfect gig amp for me. Guitar, amp. No FX, just plug in & play.
2 grand is a lot for a little combo, though, but I think it'll be worth it.

Hey, so who wants to be a beta tester for the fuzz I'm designing? Ben and Mike have already said they're interested. Basically, you'd pay shipping to you and you can keep it. Just give me feedback and I'll socket some stuff and send extra parts and hopefully y'all can do the mods I come up with based on that feedback and give me feedback on that and so on.

Requirements are that you play sludge/doom/stoner. If you gig with those genres, even better.


EDIT: Oh ya, PM or FB me if interested so I can keep track of how many I need to build.

I know you're jelly.

I'm actually getting it modded a bit one of these days. I desire exact BFSR cleans, which the CBB doesn't have (It has more of a modern fender clean tone). So the guy who's modding it is confident that he can give it some BFSR mojo. Then I will be truly super happy with it.

Oh, another option I have for the modding is that he can pop in some 6V6s in place of the 6L6s. That's a bit tempting, since I do play at lowish volumes.

You shouldn't need anyone else to pop in 6V6s for you. When we were actually considering me taking that amp off your hands, here's what CBB told me: "The power tube sockets are wired to accept any octal tube such as 6V6, EL34, 6L6, 5881, KT66. The KT66 is my favorite in this amp."

Now, I'm not sure if this is plug and play, or if you'll need to bias, but it certainly sounds like you won't need to have the amp modified.

EDIT: Scratch that, it will need to be biased. But there is a different bias pot for each power tube, so the tubes don't even have to be matched.....

Oh, I knew that I won't need to make any mods. Maybe I'll switch to 6V6s when the RCA 6l6s burn out. But it will probably need a bias, wouldn't you think?

Edit: Yeah, that's what I thought. Another idea i wanted to try was running a 6v6 along with an EL84 (using a THD Yellowjacket) in it. Drop wattage + two different power tube flavors? An interesting prospect.

There are a ton of things you could do with that amp, tube wise, that would be really cool.

And the CBB guy was giving me bias figures in terms of mA, so you'd just need to be able to measure cathode current, in all likelihood.

Yup. I've entertained the idea of a pair of EL34s, two different 6l6s (like one RCA and a GE. *drool*), two 6v6s, and pretty much every combination out there. Maybe I can have Tim show me how to bias, lol.

There's probably already a resistor in there from cathode to ground (most likely 1 ohm). If there's not, put one in. Get a meter, measure the voltage drop across that resistor, and adjust the bias pot until V/R is roughly the current you're looking for with that kind of tube.

Biasing isn't an exact science. Twist the knob till it sounds good is also a reasonable method.

Can't wait. Bet I could get some great sludge/doom sounds running it through my Laney set all gritty-clean like.

And did I see that right? BMP tone stack too? 6 pots? Also, the Modern/Vintage switch is still in there right? Pretty sure I see it...

Running it into a dirty amp might be too much gain. I dunno yet. I'm going to be dumping quite a bit of signal between stages though so it might end up working out nicely that way.

And crap. That's the earliest schem I drew up. Current version has 7 pots. Vintage/modern switch is still there to switch in/out the first stage. If you want a more detailed description,

http://maximumcork.forumotion.com/t93-doom-machine-build-thread#1007

Here's the current board layout revision.



EDIT: Tone control is a passive Baxandall, not a BMP. I don't really like the BMP tone control much. At least without the mod for a mids pot.

Don't feel like registering for MC while at work. I'll check that thread out later.

Ah, I knew it was one or the other. I knew that the tone circuit looked familiar, just couldn't remember which.

Also, where's a good place to buy vero board? I want to start putting some time into buildz. I have a short list of things I want to try.

I'll copy the description for you. I though you were already a member.

Quote by mmolteratx

Basically, it's a Tonebender with a switchable JFET boost up front. The boost has a pretty heavy low cut so it would tighten shiz up a lot. Gonna call it the vintage/modern switch since one mode will be tighter with insane amounts of gain and one will be looser with slightly less insane amounts.

Post Tonebender is another JFET stage. This one will be biased according to the three-halves power law in an attempt to squeeze some even order harmonics out of it. JFET selection will be crucial. Haven't decided on a pinch off voltage that I want to use since I haven't measured enough 2n5457s to get a feel for the mean yet. Once that's decided values will be quick.

After that JFET stage is a voltage follower into a passive Baxandall (James) tone stack. The initial values I'll be messing with will probably be similar to the BJF Sea Blue EQ since I like how that pedal's EQ works. After the tone stack is another voltage follower. The voltage followers provide optimum output and input impedances to make the Baxandall's frequency response as close to that intended.

After the tone stack is another JFET stage for recovery. This one will also be biased according to the three-halves power law exactly like the first in an attempt to add some warmth/even order harmonics.

The MAX1044 will be used to get -9V and +17.6V out of a +9V supply. The -9V will power the Tonebender section since the Ge transistors I got are nearly all PNP. The 17.6V will be for the voltage followers for max headroom. The JFETs will all be run off of the +9V supply.

I've just got to decide on values for a few pieces of the circuit and then I can order bunches of parts and wait for the Ge transistors to come in and build. Very excite.

Sag control will control the ESR of the -9V supply and allow you to simulate a carbon zinc battery that some prefer in a Tonebender. The higher ESR will cause voltage to drop as current flows, introducing sag. A high enough ESR will cause the voltage to drop period, regardless of how much current is flowing.

The Bias 1 control is to get the first JFET stage to bias at 4.5V on the drain so I don't have to select JFETs for that position. The Bias 2 control is for the collector voltage for Q4 (Q3 in a traditional Tonebender). Preferably you'd leave this alone but messing with it could get you a more gated fuzz tone. I might just drip some epoxy over the bias trimmers to prevent people from ****ing with them.


I buy my vero form Aron's Stompbox store.

to kyle's and tubetime's posts to me in the last thread

Oh and i picked up a tonerider analogue delay... had my eye on one for ages, but the only dealer in the UK (i thought) never had them in stock. It hit me a few nights ago that maybe i should check ebay in case there were other people selling them. I got one for £44 (new) including postage I've only had a quick run through it, but it sounds pretty darn good. Little bit of clock noise (or maybe i'm just no good at muting ), but it sounds good. Not sure if it's truly analogue or not... there are a lot of those hybrid analogue ones going around at the moment with the pt2399 chip, but for forty-odd quid I don't care, it sounds good and it's true bypass. I like the tonerider stuff, they don't try to give you too much with features out the wazoo, and while they're good value, again they're not so cheap that they've cheaped out and just made crap.

Oh and quail- i tried the thomann isolated power supplies. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I don't think they're working too well I'm getting a lot more hum, and some of my pedals don't work with it. I'll do more troubleshooting tomorrow if I can, but initial thoughts are... uh-oh.
