1959 SLP RI what to expect...

Post by Zebrapup01 » Sun Mar 18, 2018 1:04 pm

Ordered one of these finally. Awaiting shipment. What tweaks to the reissues are necessary to achieve a ‘68 spec? I realize the differences from turret to pc board, would just like to know what you guys have found with these. I’m not concerned with a master volume as I plan on using my Rivera mini rock crusher, and a brown box. How are the transformers regarded? What tube provider and brands of tubes are most reliable? I’ve been through a litany of boutique stuff, including the Bogner Helios 100 watt and a suhr sl 67. It’s become apparent that the original circuit and Iron is the only thing that will get me where I want to be. Any insight is welcome! Thanks folks!!

Well done
There are a few versions with subtle differences, not sure about the newest ones.
Very simple to use - turn up and play.
A 68 has very low filtering, the circuits are very similar.
Try it first, dial it in and then come back to us if you want to change things :rocker:

Well, spent a couple of hours with the amp. Electro harmonix preamp tubes, Russian winged Cs, mercury choke and OT, dagnal PT and a master volume. Now, when I asked if the master was the only mod, I was told... yeah the guy didn’t mention anything else... so until I pull it out of the shell, it’s anybodys guess. Sounds like a plexi. Pretty dang good. And that’s from the rock crusher into a crap mixing board and through headphones and decent JBL monitors. Really wish I had gotten one of these years ago. I love how it magnifies my touch, and it springs back at me just the way I like. Really anxious to try the brown box with it.

You're using guitar speaker emulation right? I can't imagine running the guitar straight through an attenuator and into monitors could sound like anything other than a can of bees :what:
