Variable Frequency Drive capacitor reforming. When VFD's are stored for extended periods of time (over 1 year) it is usually a good idea to "reform" the capacitors. This is done by controlling the amount of current, usually by controlling the voltage with a VARIAC. This is some video I made while I reformed some surplus VFD's I purchased. Two were on the shelf for almost 6 years, another almost 4 years. For reasons why this is a good idea see the following manufacturer literature: Yaskawa - http://tinyurl.com/lxom9k8 MICROMASTER 420 Manual - http://www.atopone.com/index_files/P/MICROMASTER%20420%20Operating%20Instructions.pdf WEG Capacitor Reforming Guide - http://ecatalog.weg.net/files/wegnet/WEG-how-to-reform-weg-vfd-capacitors-usareform-brochure-english.pdf

The new power output tube sockets and resistors. All brand new JJ 6L6 tubes, grid and bias resistors are all matched. All electrolytic caps are changed to new Ruby Gold series capacitors. Then they are "formed" slowly (initial input voltage is slowly brought up over time to allow the capacitors to settle the laminations because they expand and contract internally,...this is traditionally done to promote a longer life span,...more of a precaution,..I don't really know that the Ruby's need this excersize at all, but this is the way we always will do it. It can't hurt! The music is by "Six Foot Model" the song is "One Thing" from their second CD "Audio DNA" (very soon to be released). The band IS Dennis Weber on vocals and guitars, Guy Bazilewich on bass guitar, and Jimmy Wasson on drums. The work on this amplifier is being done by Weber Custom Amplifiers, Modifications and Repairs / Steve Weber 888-514-3811 / 262-885-1581.

We have 3 of these great little amps - ideal for busking, home use, or making that Led Zep sound so it seems! (dating back to 1965). 10watt valve, four inputs split over two control sets. Well the complaint always was that old Hagstrom amps were too clean. So bridge the inputs like "anyone who's anyone" does with old Marshall amps. The outcome - a sound like Jimmy Page got with his Tele.... Great Fun. How about a stack of three 310's together all bridged and through each other - ultimate 30watt blues rock? John Mayer eat yer heart out ...Muowa-ha-ha! These amps were based on the Mullard kit amps from the late 1950's. Even down to the 310 and 510 model name - this was written on the Mullard kits too! Well they do say there's nothing new with a true valve amplifier! However, read on to see how they implemented this little bruiser... Very few people know how ahead of time Hagstrom was when they designed the 310. The 310 is actually both a 2-channel mixer,a tremolo-unit and a guitar combo. The two channels are identical microphone inputs with mixing capability. The first tube in the amp is used as a pre-amp/mixer as this tube is a twin tube where the outputs converge into one of the halves of the second tube. Here the sum signal of the two microphone inputs gets the tremolo added. Then the signal goes to the second half of the second tube where it is further amplified before coming to the complicated power amplifier valve that actually is a double penthode/triode. In this tube the triode is used to invert the signal for one half of the push-pull amplifier formed by the two following penthodes. Hence this is an ideal amplifier for the street singer with one vocal microphone and one guitar, violin or what ever. Two guitars can also be used and mixed at wish although there is only one tone control. The background noise in this video is down to our broadband TV using the same mains electric circuit that this amp is plugged into. These amps are SILENT when they should be... or anywhere else!

Here's another Plexi Build. This is modeled after a 1967 Marshall Pexi "The First JMP" with a 1202-80 Power Transformer and a 1202-119 Output Transformer with a 1700 impedance. All Mustard Capacitors and Mullard EL34 Xf4 and Mullard 12AX7. Basically identical to the Black Flags, these amps are easily recognizable by having a “JMP” faceplate and sometimes also a polarity switch on the front (especially on US models). Like the last Black Flags, these models used 470K mixer resistors. Both 1202-119 and 1202-132 output transformers are used. Serial numbers are still in the 10.000 range.

We recently caught up with The Spinto Band's Nick Krill while on tour in Europe supporting their recent record, "Shy Pursuit". Nick gives us a quick run through of his live rig, featuring his VOX AC15C1! The Spinto Band also have a new full-length record, "Cool Cocoon" due out soon! Recorded again at their Delaware studio and released on Spintonic Recordings, the album represents a remarkable change of pace. There is more collaboration between songwriters, more spontaneity in the recording process and a distinctively focused sonic direction. Combined, these elements have formed their most cohesive album to date. "Cool Cocoon" comes out February 5th in the USA, and later this spring in Europe, but is available for pre-order now at http://www.spintoband.com. The band will be touring in Europe and the USA this February to support the album. Head over to their website for full information!

Here´s Part Two in were the purpose of the Cathode bypass Capacitors are discussed. Not only the, well known effect of higher output power is shown. But also their contribution to the distortion furthermore if we can use that and how to design the THD of an Amplifier. Note that we´re talking here about Musical Instrument Amplifiers -- NOT -- HiFi Amplifiers. It´s topology will be complete different, as this amp discussed in here, is intended to be used with Instruments. Here´s a little description what these Caps do: First we need to talk about the cathode resistors..... The Cathode resistors have two functions: 1) protect the output tube against too much current flow (obvious) 2) From a current feedback path in where the current flowing through the resistor causes a proportional voltage drop across them. This voltage drop affects the control grid bias as well. As more voltage is across the cathode resistor the more negative will be the control grid. This cuts off the pentode more and more. Another (unwanted) function is, that when you feed a signal through the pentode a little portion of it will go through the cathode resistor and causing a current in it. This will be reflected via the amplification factor (gm) up into the tube again but with a 180 degree phase shift and therefore acts like a feedback. That´s why we talk about current feedback. If you make the plate resistor equal to the cathode resistor, no amplification will result, as both signals are of the same level resulting in a 100% feedback and no more gain. We still have some use for this in phase splitters. (But remember that the output plate resistance is much higher than the output cathode resistance, so when you load this with a next stage (=output tubes) calculate that, or you end up with "funny" things. or do it on purpose and design your THD, but this will be covered in a follow up. I really do not have a clue on how to show this, as it is really complicated, but at least i can show the results....let´s see..... This last one can be overcome with a capacitor placed in parallel to the cathode resistor. Then the ac signal from the cathode will be directy sended to ground and will not cause a feedback anymore. This is only a very briefly explanation of what happens within the current feedback and i omit some side effects, on purpose, as it will be getting very long and very complex to describe it all in full. I neglect the differential gain increment as well as any AC gain refection (=gm(AC-whise)) changes as well depending on the transit frequency of the formed RC device when a Cap is in parallel with the cathode resistor) This is *the* cause of more THD as a Cap is a nonlinear device, sadly. The voltage inside the Cap is affecting the capacitance as well as the current which is flowing through it. So if the Cap is changing all other will be change as well. The actual level is proportional to the DC voltage but inverse to the current and AC voltage and depends as well on the overal quality of the Cap. Anyway thanx for watching. I hope it makes sence to you, i know this is not easy to understand, if you´re not familiar with Distortion, but at least you can make some use of the last minutes;) When you may omit one Cap to make your amp sounding a little "warmer" ;)

Chris called me up from Cornerstone music with an amplifier in such disrepair that he was giving it to me for free. I have a sneaking suspicion he took hard to see pictures in the text messages for fear I might not show up to pick up the amp. What I saw was horrible. I have a good feeling that this was out in the weather for a while or at best in a wet basement for a great many years exposed to the elements. I have decided that regardless of all of this, the Silvertone would be my yearly Shango66 resurrection challenge, along with full restoration. There will be as much electronics work as body work and vice versa. This thing is absolutely horrible. I feel disgusted to touch it. layers of crap are coating this thing. Tubes falling out. Wires cut, chewed up by rats, the inside just covered in god knows what. Oh boy. So ill just remove the tubes and get this amp out of the cabinet. Surprisingly the underside of the amp looks really nice except for the caps that seems to have formed a film upon them. After blowing out the cabinet, chassis cleaning starts, and that means scrubbing, because its disgusting. and aluminum does clean up ok. The challenge comes in starting to pull the rust out of the front face. Its a cheap chrome plating on metal with silkscreen. I need to go deep enough to remove the rust, but I also need to grain it to cover the imperfections. All of which needs to be balanced to not remove any paint. The metal work went really slow. Slowly work is being done on the amp cabinet to pill the dirt out of the grain as well, I keep going back and forth between the two as I start comprehensive polishing of the chassis. The electrolytic cap will not be used anymore so it will be left in place and shined. The reverb tank will have to be removed and restored separately. After the final cleaning of the chassis its brought outside for the final blowout also allowing for bench decontamination. This begins the next phase, starting with the replacement of the fuse holder for the amp. Following this, the Power transformer is removed from the chassis, remembering where everything was connected to. Also the covers of the power transformers, exposing more places to clean. I tool this time to check out the works cheapest reverb tank. and shine up the aluminum for it, i put it to the side so I could make a test for it later. What I really want to do it test that power transformer with the impedance bridge. Testing showed that I almost made it out of testing without issue, sure enough we have a serious problem with this power transformer, an open!!! and its the filament voltages. Tune in for PART 2

In the last video for guitar regenerative heterodyne reciever I used the guitar amp as the regenerative detector and since my guitar amp doesn't have multiple line ins I had to use acoustic feedback loop of the guitar strings right next to the speaker cabinet, but in this video I achieved the feedback loop with electronics instead of acoustics for better results. Also the last video had no antenna and the strings were subject to picking up background noise but in this video an antenna is added and the strings are muted with cloth towels since electronics instead of acoustics are used. I made the feedback loop with one of those short 8 inch long cables used to connect guitar effect pedals together connected to an audio mixer. The mixer line in 1 is connected to the guitar. The mixer line in 2 is connected to one part of a Y splitter. The audio line out to the audio amp is connected to the other part of the Y splitter. The input of the Y splitter is connected to the 8 inch long cable. The 8 inch long cable is connected to the line out of the mixer. Forming the feedback loop of the regenerative detector. The antenna is coupled to the pickup contacts. Tuning is accomplished with the pickup selector switch, which can only tune to 2 settings. When both pickup sets are selected (more coils = lower frequency) it has too much mains hum, so I only use selecting one pickup set (less coils = higher frequency). More tuning is accomplished with the channel 1 and channel 2 gain pots on the regenerative detector. Gain on the regenerative detector below oscillating feedback squeel is AM and very close to oscillation is heterodyne CW morse code. Currently mostly only mains hum is heard on AM mode so we are only interested in CW mode. The SNR of CW mode is increased by decreasing the band width to the audio frequencies that CW uses. This is accomplished with the tone controls on the guitar amp. Eliminating bass (not used by CW) attenuates mains hum and attenuates booming radio voices that are unintelligeble due to mains hum and lack of frequency selectability. The frequency selectability over the last video is improved. Now 2 CW stations are heard at the same time and each one can be attenuated by adjusting the gain of the regenerative detector. The CW station heard in the last video is still the loudest station received in this video, so that means that it is the closest. Adding a vari cap made out of toliet paper rolls, aluminum foil, and some wire could improve the frequency selectablity if the vari cap was coupled in series with the pickups and antenna. There is no vari cap here, but I will try that in the next video. The slightly higher heterodyne frequency sounding beeping (and quiter) is _ _ _ . _ . _ . . O R D O'hare beacon. The slightly lower heterodyne frequency sounding beeping (and louder) is _ _ _ _ _ . . _ . _ O B K Northbrook beacon. Google says the frequencies of the beacons are: ORD: 113.90 MHZ OBK: 113.00 MHZ So they are very close in frequency so that is why they are bleeding through into each other and they both start with _ _ _ so it makes it confusing.

The Aston Origin condenser microphone has been conceived, designed, and yes, manufactured… all in the UK. The Aston Origin has our signature wave-form mesh head. This unique design not only looks great, but delivers an unprecedented degree of protection for the heart of your microphone, the capsule. The shock resistant wave-form design allows the head of the mic to distort if given a heavy knock, and then return to its normal position, without any damage at all. It also offers a degree of off-axis rejection, helping to eliminate unwanted artefacts from your recordings Built-in Pop filter Aston’s vocal condenser microphones have an exclusive mesh-knit pop filter built into the wave-form head. The random weave allows sound to pass while virtually eliminating unwanted plosives at source. It also shields against multiple wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation making our microphones ideal in critically sensitive electronic applications. This completely encapsulating, single piece, mesh cage is formed in stainless steel, so won’t rust with use, and can even be removed and washed. End Caps Yet another unique design element of the Aston Origin, is the use of custom moulded end caps with integrated XLR and stand adaptor. No other mic has this. Because the internal shock absorption system is so good, you can mount the microphone directly to a stand via this built in, and interchangeable thread adapter. The design also makes Aston microphones extremely easy to repair and maintain. Chassis Part of the beauty of our microphones is the custom finish of each chassis. There are no mass-produced paint job finishes here… instead, each chassis is individually tumbled for up to 4 hours to give it a very hard-wearing, and extremely beautiful, finish. To perfect the look, each microphone is separately engraved with its legends, and our brand mantra… ‘The art of performance’.

Beautiful guitar played here by roger Crombie for MadDogguitars Ramsbottom.Carved from a solid mahogany blank, the Elise body has acoustically tuned chambers, a full length centre block, and double carved solid maple cap to create a vibrant semi acoustic body. The slick mahogany neck, with deluxe rosewood fingerboard, employs the Fret-King long-tenon neck joint, which mates precisely to the body underneath the neck pickup, forming a rigid fixed bond between neck and body, maximising the retention and transmission of the Elise's fundamental acoustic properties. Fret-King WVC double coils give the Elise a voice with unassailable authenticity, definition and the power required for everything from mellow jazz to full bore blues. Fitted with the Fret-King Vari-coil, the WVCs can be progressively wound back to emulate a P90, or produce sparkling traditional single coil tone. The Elise sounds just like it looks, and then produces voicings never associated with this style of guitar, but which would be at home on Ocean Boulevard or a Nashville `Honkey Tonk'.

Initially this was '83 Marshall 4210, crappy sounding JCM 800 with diode clipping, transistor channel switching and spring reverb. But transformers used in this combo are still decent. I've rebuilt it so ones tone-forming circuity became almost as famous 2204 model and sound closest to best 2204 for sure. As bonus it got ultra-clear, flawless relay channel switching. Indeed the "channel" is the same but gain and channel volume knobs alternates. Gains has different bright caps. So one may consider this amp as "dual 2204". The fx-loop is also improved and have no big impact on overall amp's tone. Master volume is post-fx and pre-PI (no more shitty PPIMV). Presence controll added. No that cumbersome reverb now.

Albion Amplification ABH-800H Demo for Qguitars by Thijs Tervoort of Shoulders of Giants Video by Dion de Jong (KINGS&COLLARS) By the manufacturer: "The ABH range of bass amps, cabinets and combos have been designed from the ground up to be mean and rugged workhorses for the bass playing fraternity. Valve based preamps with easy to use, but very effective, EQ and very usable gain options provide the bass player with a very satisfying tonal palette for every occasion. The over-engineered solid-state power amps provide reliable and consistent power delivery night after night – with the punch of Mike Tyson and the growl of a Pitbull on steroids. The AHB range is available in various power ratings in Head and Combo formats, and can be easily coupled with our range of bass cabinets to suit many differing needs of performance. Because we can design and build our own loudspeakers using in-house acoustic engineering experts each cabinet has been fine tuned with a loudspeaker that has been expressly designed for that particular cabinet. Every part has been custom designed for the job rather than having to work around another supplier’s products. Our angular variable dispersion horn, for instance, aims the sound at your ears rather than your knee-caps. All our cabinets are made from Birch Ply with many strategically placed interior braces to maximize tight vibration free performance with controlled weight. The cabinets have metal grilles formed to minimize rattle and vibration. All the amplifiers have large heat-sinks with fan cooling (thermostatically controlled on the higher power amps) to maintain a low temperature under all operating conditions.

Ok .... mid to late 70s Peavey stuff is amazing. The solid state amps have an urgent abrasive tone. Very direct and powerful Greg Ginn used the Peavey Standard Series 260 PA mixer head so one can argue it's the tone that formed American hardcore. I just bought a 1976 Peavey musician head. Here I am giving it a road test.......just a quick improv. My initial tone is coming from a Mesa Boogie subway rocket circa 1990. It's was a really nice 18w combo I turned into a head. I send the signal to the Peavey for final tone shaping and volume .... and lemme tell ya ........ it's fargin' loud My cabinet is a Avatar half open half closed 4x12 and the guitar is a Precision guitar kit !!! nice huh ??? The mic is a Rode stereo video mic hooked into my camera. vintage Peavey is gold

This is the optional phonostage made during the 1970s and 1980s by soviet baltic RRR Radiotehnika Rigonda (R.e.m.R) combinat. Using a high quality integrated electroacoustics low noise amplifier К548УН1 also used in laboratory and sonar measuring equipment, specific made for electroacoustic applications not just an operational amplifier. Funny is that Russians did not have normal bipolar electrolytics so they just used for coupling and decoupling normal 5uf 16V radial electrolytics. But I think these armenian radial electrolytics were AC treated before so they were "formed" to low voltage bipolar characteristics, I tried new 5uf standard polarized electrolytics because I had no 5uf bipolar types in my tool box but this did not work, the amp started motorboating (oscilation). I reinstalled the russian 5uf electrolytics and it worked again, so I assume these were bipolarized electrolytics. The resistors are high quality MIL spec quality low noise types, the two big axial caps are MIL spec quality paper in oil caps that sound great.

1962 Marshall BluesBreaker Build. Gathering up some ideals and components for this build. I found out this tremolo circuit hums like crazy, so I just might build it just like the CeriaTone spec's, Which is different than the original.

Sharing one of my favorite songs from De La Hoya. Hardcore band De La Hoya formed in the summer of 1997, when guitar player Oscar Rodriguez asked singer Aaron Scott to start a band just 10 minutes after meeting. They recruited bassist Carly Guarino (owner of Crap Records) and drummer Jaime Villamarin (ex-Ifarm) to form De La Hoya in the heart of New York City.
