Re: Park 50 copy

Hi, Firehazard - the treble bypass cap has gone through various values from 500pf to 100pf. To be honest I quite like it without and have just got the cap hanging by one leg at moment - I think that's due to the V30s in the cab being so bright/middly really. Fine with Les Paul's and PRSs but too ice...

Thanks Jack, Rob - I like both and its the blend which is good. I often mic both up and record a blend of the two - if I can sort the phase issues out! (I'm still very much learning how to record well in my small home studio) I'd really like a cab loaded with 4 old G12s but had a couple of V30s spar...

Hi Rob, yes the 12AY7 can be really good in V1. I built a clone of the Fender Pro ( 5EA i think from memory ) and it had a 12AY7 in V1. That was a very nice amp. For speakers - I am using either a diy 4x12 with 2 V30's and 2 G12H's or a DIY 1x12 Thiele ported cab I found people raving about on the A...

Hi Rob, I used the value from the Marshall model 1986 Bass as I'd liked the Kossof sound and also watched some clips of JD Simon on Youtube playing through a 1986 and loved the tone. I haven't tried 220K mix resistors instead - I might try strapping a couple of 470K's across temporarily to see what ...

Love it Rob - super job
bet it sounds wonderful.

I have to stem the amp building for a while to work on a few bits of outboard gear for my home studio.
What else have you built ?

Cheers

Hi If you have a stripped down old laptop you could install Vortexbox on it and rip CDs directly from the CD drawer to your storage, or copy across home network. I did exactly this with an old Thinkpad and it works great on my home network and responds to Squeezebox too. I copied a c. 90000 track li...

Park 50 copy

Hi all, thought the guitar players here might appreciate this one. just finished my latest project - which is a copy of a late 1960's Park 50 watt guitar amp. Combination of new old stock and new components , and using some of Mike's Living in the Past transformers too. Sounds great - but had to fit...

one of my all time favourite guitar solos in that song.

Bought the album many years ago and was a bit disappointed with the rest of it compared to this stand out track though.

Almost a Cars / The Knack thing going on in this song.....

Very nice indeed !!!
I love DIY marshall clones.

- I am just about to start a build of a 50w model 1986 Marshall clone as my next amp. I have several guitar amps and a clone of a Park 1210 Rockhead was my last one. I want the cathode follower sound of the Plexi 1986 circuit though.

Cheers

Hi there Steve - great to hear from you ! they are for mostly for Marshall and Park guitar amp clones I have built - so any decent ECC83s will be great - I have had reasonable success with JJ's and Tung Sol, but whatever you want to shift Steve ! If you have any decent British ones then great. NB - ...
