Tons of stuff here: http://www.dozin.com/
Waldo, is that your site?
I defer to Wald, he really came through with the specifics along with another brilliant Gearheads group member named Buck. Between the 2 of them they came up with the most comprehensive list to date... Great guys, and great info. I don't know Joe but have heard great things about him as well.jeffm725 wrote:there are 3 people you need to talk to and listen to when it comes to the Fender Amp mods and they are all very knowledgeable:
in no particular order:
The first 2 are obviously active participants on this board, the 3rd (Joe) I can give you his number
Rat..PM me for Joes number anytime, he LOVES talking this stuff...I Have about 800 feet of the Belden on hand right now, so I think I can probably cover whatever you need ...just sent a few out with neutrik ends to another rukind member last week, I think he was pretty happy with 'em. You probably just need cable, no plugs, right? (I think I have maybe 1/2 dozen of the old fat right angle np2rc's right now and a couple straight np2c's)...anyway just send a pm anytime.....RiverRat wrote:Yep....Duh.... Tanks Jonarobb
I had 220K on the brain from something else I was working on...It filtered through and made it's way into that last email I sent... Sometimes I type messages when I am dealing with other stuff and the things get jumbled.
Jeff, I'd love to get Joe's #.... I'll PM ya either way cuz I need a connection for some of the Blue Belden cable...
Buck Webster and Waldo have been a huge help so far... and they don't even know it. Plus, I will be posting to Gearheads this weekend seeking the same info.

LOW ESR Cathode Bypass capacitors. that is what Healy stated. You should be able to search Mouser, Allied or any other with the term Low ESR and then find the values needed. i believe the Cathode Bypass Voltage ratings is 25v so those should work.RiverRat wrote:Any thoughts on a source for 25uF caps... I was looking at F&T's, but I think they are only rated for 25V.
iirc, the whole point of wickershams alembicization input mod is to eliminate the input resistors, no matter what material they were. any resisitor in that position will be susceptible to noise, albeit smaller chance with metal films, but none the less susceptible. with them you have no chance of it and the whole point of the mod.RiverRat wrote:I'm a bit more intrigued about the Alembicized Inputs, reading up on some stuff and getting the impression that this would be an ideal location for a switch from Carbons to Metal Films.
