  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks, I really appreciate it. Stay safe folks πŸ‘
  3. Today
  4. D’Addario Chromes 11-50 ECG24 – Jazz Light Gauge - Warm/Mellow Tone – Flat Wound; 11, 15, 22w, 30, 40, 50 On both my H535 and my H530. Perfect as far as I'm concerned.
  5. Pyramid Electric Guitar Chrome-Nickle Flatwounds .011 - .050 They also have an .011 - .048 set. Welcome to the forum, JazzyPete!
  6. Yesterday
  7. If you are going to play Jaxx, I think the flatwound 11's or even 12's are great. I like my 535 for bending and stuff and have 9's on it right now but use my 576 and L-5 with big ass flatwounds.
  8. Firstly I apologise if this subject has been already previously discussed. I have recently acquired a H535 with size ten strings. I'm more of a straight ahead jazz bebop style player then a "string bending" blues player. So I wondered what jazz guys (or gals) were using on their 535s. I'm looking at getting some flatwound 11 gauge. Any recommendations gratefully received - thank you Pete. Ps hope you all keeping safe.
  9. Yes indeed, shrink tubing is also good to use. When I ended up converting the wiring to '50's style (after the video was made), I installed some shrink tubing over the cables to help ensure they don't touch anything they shouldn't.
  10. I found it handy to add shrink tubing over the braid after I redid the harness in my 535 and somehow the braid was touching something it wasn't supposed to causing one channel to go dead. Pulled the harness and everthing was fine. Covered the cables and put back in with no problems.
  11. Last week
  12. We had two good looking girls in the USO band that I toured with and the guys LOVED them:)
  13. I'm no expert, but I've used this technique 4 or 5 times now in various guitars, and it works well enough that I have no reservations about removing pickups from a semi-hollow or fully-hollow guitar. I made this video after purchasing a Gibbons ES-390 that hummed more than any guitar I've ever owned, and I've owned and built a few P90 guitars, so it's not like it was my first rodeo with those pickups. Thought I would pass it along to you guys. YMMV. Happy to answer any questions.

  14. Not long ago, I was testing out a Gretsch guitar in a Guitar Center, and they had some of these new Fender amps there, '68 Silverface Princeton, '68 Deluxe Reverb, and a '68 Vibrolux, and they all sounded pretty good. They all got a little more overdrive than their vintage counterparts which was something I liked. I liked the Gretsch most with the Vibrolux, but the Deluxe sounded great with an LP! Congrats on a nice amp! Here's acool video of it being compared to the '65 reissue. They both sound good...
  15. I keep mine on an Ottoman fold up bed! You think we should be sharing these tone secrets? πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
  16. That's it. I knew there was two different voicings of some kind. Enjoy!
  17. Haha! I love it! My Vibro Champ sits on top of a Fender Music Master amp...kinda like a table...and sounds great.
  18. I had the champ sounding better than ever before last night. The secret was putting it on the dining room table. My tip for the day for better sound is a dining room table. You read it here first. y2kc
  19. I was not aware of them. Congrats! That is a cool amp!
  20. It's a modern day take on one. One channel has a Baseman tone stack. The other has a copy of the vintage Deluxe Reverb tone stack.
  21. So is it a modern day take on a 68 deluxe or did they make a custom deluxe back in 68? Beautiful amp!
  22. I remember the hype when those came out. A slightly hotter version of the original and reviewers said they sounded great. Isn't there a pull knob on the volume to make it a "hotter" and then push in for a "normal" (not as in the "normal channel" input, but as in "regular" unaltered '68 Deluxe Reverb channel)?
