  1. I looked at the schematic closer and read some stuff about the harmonic tremolo. It takes the signal and splits it with a high and low pass filter and sends it through the tremolo circuit. It basically makes a stereo signal which is why it needs so many tubes to run. One side is all the low end the other is the high end. Then it puts it back into the main circuit at the phase inverter and makes it mono again. The result is the low end increases with volume as the high end decreases and when it maxes out it reverses and goes the other way. So the tremolo gives an on off effect but at the same t
  2. It takes 2 1/2 tubes to run the tremolo. It does the simple part of turning the power tubes on and off with the bias but then the other 4 side of the 12ax7s are used to modulate the high and low. It is very close to a phase shifter flangey sound.
  3. This Concert has the same tremolo as the Tremolux. I think the late Brownface tremolo (on the bigger amps) is the best Fender ever made. It was too complicated and costly to stay. It almost sounds like a Leslie when it is slow.
  4. I’m still in my P90 phase, I think it is here to stay. I have 3 P90 guitars now. I have a HB Collings CL that I was going to sell but I think I may find some HB sized P90s for it and keep it.
  5. Yes, 10s. They are Mojotone M10RR, older ones I think. Basic copies of Jensen 10s that came in amps of this era. They sound great at all volumes in this amp. Never too shrill. The amp has quite a bit of low end and mids so it really gets fat compared to a Blackface amp. It’s meaner and nastier than a 59 Bassman too, my harp player has a real one and I prefer this amp to it.
  6. I was home alone for a bit today so I thought I would Harass the neighborhood. Here is the GT straight into a ‘62 Fender concert on the “normal” channel with the volume on 7 and the treble and bass on 6. This combo shakes the house and it can be felt in your bones. I had the amp in another room with the door slightly open. I was about 10 feet from the door and 20 from the amp.
  7. I came back too late to edit my post but I think it is important to say that the 12s I use do not have a wrapped G string.
  8. I run 11s in all guitars that I play blues with and do a lot of string bending. Mainly these go in my H150, an ES347 and other similar guitars. 11s have the perfect resistance for bending and allow for better control over lighter strings. 11s are the lightest string I use. I run 12s on in between guitars that I play jazz and blues with. I still bend quite a bite but not like the 11s. Mostly these go on an ES225. The 12s give a bigger thicker tone than the 11s. This gauge allows me to play fast runs like a smaller string but I can get smooth creamy tone when I play octaves. They also
  9. I have a Collings CL that I’m getting ready to sell. I have to let it go for two reasons. I bought an old Epiphone archtop and I only play P90s now. Enough about that though and now this: I bought the guitar a few years ago at my local shop. I played it and then obsessed over it. I went back in over and over again for a month until I could make the deal. I have always been an “LP” guy and have owned various brands of them including Heritage, Gibson, PRS and Collings. The quality of the Collings and PRS (it was an artist S.C.245) are comparable and, without a doubt, of a higher standard than th
  10. I loved the picture of your Super Eagle. Is the finish Antique Natural? I'm thinking of buying a Super Eagle, and I really like the way yours looks. Thanks for your time.

  11. Wow, I love the 150! Great color.

    Rockin' Hamilton

    Rockin' this summer in Hamilton for the brew fest wearing the "Datsun" shirt, giving a hint to the "Z" and "71" in zguitar71.
  13. Nice golt top!, my dream guitar right now, Love the lollar p-90's.
  14. I have a Super Eagle and I never play it any more because of the size. It is a real shame because the guitar is very nice. I use my semi-hollow guitar for jazz gigs all the time now. A semi-hollow with a mahogany body and neck and a maple top would be perfect.
