    HELP!!!!! 4 CABLE METHOD NOT WORKING

    It's all about levels... I'm not familiar with the Head Rush but I had a similar problem with a gt8 when I started messing with the 4 cable method. This is from a manual made by gt8 users, ... The parameters may be different but maybe this can point you in the right direction... **** Make...

    People with signs at intersections asking for money..

    It depends... Back in the 90s I read an article in Newsday about a man who panhandled in Penn station. He left his house in Smithtown long island every morning with a briefcase wearing a nice suit, his family thought he was a stock broker. When he got to Penn he would change into old raggy...

    I want to thank everyone for taking the time to reply and help resolve this very aggravating (to me anyway) issue. I installed a new pair of jjel34s Friday night and what a difference... I've put about 20 hours on it and it's getting better and better.... Now it sounds like a Plexi.. the beast...

    Thanks for the reply, I tried all of the above with no improvement. It turns out it was the tubes.. Installed a new set of jjel34s on Friday and the amp sounds incredible.. thanks for the advice.

    1987x with 3 month old eh 6ca7s bias 10ma apart

    That's what I'm leaning toward... I also was told by a tech that the reissue EH6ca7s aren't a direct replacement for el34s.. I ordered a pair of apex matched and burned in el34s and a shop is holding a pair of jj el34IIs for me, I cant get over to pick them up till next week though... Thanks...

    Yea identical, plate voltage (pin 3 I believe) is identical as well.. I'm seeing quite a few people online with the same issue on different forums... a lot of them involve EH6ca7s

    1987x with 3 month old eh 6ca7s bias 10ma apart

    I may have jumped to a conclusion calling them garbage because I'm pretty pi**ed, but they are rebranded. I have 2 1987x's, 1 with the fx loop and an older 1 without and have used JJ El34s a few times in both with great results,I wanted to try the 6ca7s for a change. I haven't tried the IIs...

    1987x with 3 month old eh 6ca7s bias 10ma apart

    Yea I bought them after a friend recommended them and saw a few positive reviews .... Nobodys fault but my own for not looking into the company and checking for myself. After a little research I found they're rebranded garbage . A local shop has a couple matched pairs of el34s in stock...

    1987x with 3 month old eh 6ca7s bias 10ma apart

    I put a new matched pair of EH 6ca7s in a 1987x that bandmates called the beast, (new preamp tubes as well) after it sat for a few years. The bias was set at 37ma with no issues and the beast was back! I had all the pots changed a few weeks later and the bias was checked, all good... I ran a...

    Should our amps last a lifetime?

    Over the years I've experimented with so many different amps I can't remember a lot of 'em. (No suprise, I can't remember most of 1985-87...) Back in high school a friend's father bought a used amp and cab at a garage sale for his birthday. That was the friend with the "cool parents", the only...
