Well, I got my MC250 back from the shop... everything was good, except the cut power cord and a couple diodes. The guys at Savage told me that it changed their minds on SS Macs (they had only ever dealt with tube Macs).
Then I realized that Waldo had already answered my master volume removal question.... I'm a noob. THANK YOU WALDO.
So I got it all hooked up (I used the existing Vibrato pedal RCA, and the existing ground through the cathode cap). I just pulled the Vibrato wire from the RCA and electrical taped it. All of this will be reversable.
I made a head, it cost me $25 and a weekend. Next will be the speaker cab.
The shop told me that the Mac does 68 watts per channel, so I'm using just the right, and leaving the left for backup.
So here's my rig now:
Maple fingerboard strat w/ OBEL and UGB>the correct Belden cable(the blue stuff)>SF Twin w/ correct Jerry caps, and Master Volume removed>Mac>E120's.
I think I'm done. The tone is to die for, with earplugs
I want to put up a vid of the tone, but I don't want to aimlessly noodle, any requests?
As always, thanks everyone!
