Robin Ford aaaarrrrhgghhhhh saw him live this time-ish last year. Great modern blues but far far far too loud. AWFUL and damaging.
Saw him a few years ago at the Picturedrome, lovely not too loud gig, good sound, just right.

Re: A little light humour

On the low-temperature end, there are additional effects that allow devices to operate below their "freeze-out" temperature. First, if the semiconductor is doped to a certain concentration, it can attain degeneracy, a condition in which the dopants require no energy for ionization. For example, thi...

Re: JBE series 3 restoration. Next on the list....

And presumably would be a hell of alot stiffer and stable than the 40 year old circuit in there. Not sure why you presume that, its likely to be regulated and have a higher max current, but there is nothing to say its going to be a lower impedance, and certainly noting that says it will be a low im...

Larry Carlton, "Blues Force". Just chillin'

In case you don't know him, if you want 335 blues, try Robbin Ford.

Thats digital for you. I don't think of that recording as having tracks, I think of it having four sides :-)

Re: 6B4G - The Resurrection Shuffle

I must admit, intuitively I have never liked the use of snubbers across the diodes, to my eyes they provide a path for HF from the mains into the rest of the amplifier.

Re: MY own OB speaker project

I'm not sure these will be added to the Reiver Acoustics range as really the DIY ply bases and side frames really need to be professionally CNC laser cut from sheet aluminium and then professionally powder coated. My initial investigations suggest these will cost in the region of £600 - £700 for th...

Re: Tone Woods

So Nick, how do we know if the design is such that the wood matters, or doesn't matter ?
We don't, so are still no closer to some absolutist ideal.

As you say, the key is "to some extent", its just how big that extent is.
