I have a '79 1959 that isn't modified and I don't want to mees with it, I was looking for a 1959 reissue that I could do the Randy Rhoads mod on but this came up. I did some research on possibilities but cannot find anything definitive. I already have two (2) JMP 2203's so I 'm not looking for that kind of modification. I'm thinking this is reversable and from all the photos it appears someone did wholesale replacement with the Orange Drops and some other minor replacements with this being the only modification.What an odd thing to do!
However if it suits your ears and the price is right!
It was an upgrade I'm sure 😞Why on earth someone changed the caps out with orange drops is beyond me. I doubt they all were bad LOL.
It can make a lot of difference, but it really depends on several factors... mainly how you use the amp, your style and tone. In some extreme cases, changing to OD caps could make the tone thin and "clinical" sounding, while the original Mullard caps can bring the glorious opposite. People love these caps for good reason.I would leave them in though since I doubt they make that much of a difference in sound, at least enough to notice. They're good quality caps so that's good.
Welcome to the forum.Hi all, my actual name is Ken Montgomery. I’m a new member but have checked this site frequently over the years to look at threads whenever I had an issue with one of my amps. I actually ended up buying this amp that Ray is posting about, (Ray and I have known each other for quite a long time). The amp is really quite nice and sounds great, that being said, there is some issues with intermittent noise, (hissing, humming) which Ray brought up the possibility of the MV location being at the #2 input. I’m taking the amp to his shop and am thinking that we will definitely relocate it, probably to speaker jack.
