I built this awhile back and thinking of experimenting with some different bright caps and clipping options - only on Channel 2. Currently each Gain control can select between 1000pf and 2700pf. Currently they are a little too bright so I was going to try 4700pf to see how that is.
Using a Ceriatone King Kong 100. No cab yet but looking into getting a 4x12. Heard an A/B of a V30 cab vs Greenbacks (I'm used to V30s) and really liked the sound of the Greenbacks. I play stuff ranging from Post-Punk, semi clean up to metalish territory.
Couple for sale near me. There are a few with different badges. One just says “1960 lead,” the other is a JCM 900 1960.
I heard a video A/B of a JCM 800 1960 vs 900 1960 4x12 and thought the former sounded better. Sound have been more broken in. I know they all have the G12t-75 speakers, well...
Built two Ceriatone kits so far - JCM 800 and King Kong 100 - and I'm thinking I want to build a plexi.
I'd like to use quality parts so I figured sourcing the components and just getting everything from scratch and vendors.
Anyone have any input and or suggestions? Like where to get...
Using the amp with my Mills Acoustics 4x12, not the internal 2x12s. Tried a different cab to rule out a speaker issue.
It happens mostly on the lead channel - hear clip - but it’s also more prominent on the clean channel with the volume up.
i swapped all but one preamp tube with good new JJ’s...
I got a 122 for stupid cheap at a garage sale. Needed some work but now it’s kicking. I don’t really care for it as a 2x12 but through my 4x12 I’m impressed.
I wanted to know if the chassis mounts are the same on the 122 as the 100. If so, I might try and and find an empty head cabinet.
I built one of these and did some mods to it - Headfirst mods and the cold clipper switch.
I added a 1000PF bright cap on a switch - same value as a stock JCM 800 - and it is damn bright. Anyone else have different values you'd recommend?
I may be getting one of these. I’ve read people say 4 ohms or higher is fine but that the power output would be reduced if I’m using an 8 ohm load vs 4. Is this the case?
If so, can I put by 8 ohm cab load out of one speaker output and a dummy 8 ohm load in the other output to make the amp see...
I have a Ceriatone JMP/jcm 800 I built with some mods. I set it up for a semi higher gain tone, using my guitar’s volume to clean up.
I have two Orange 2x12s with V30s and a Fryette Deliverance 412 with Fane F70 speakers.
Neither of those setups are doing it for me.
Any recommendations for...
