Boss SD-1

I really like the Boss SD-1 overdrive pedal. I have owned a few of them. I always seem to mod them and then sell them. I have modded another one. I like the Monte Allums mods. I am especially fond of the 808 Mod. It makes the pedal a little clearer and more “transparent”. Less…


Buy a Killer B!

Here is the first ot two Tweed Bassman type amps I have built this year. This one is for sale for a great price! The first $600 takes it away. Here is the CL posting and the blog post about the builds.  This is a great deal on a classic circuit. 


Speedster Deluxe

I have had the pleasure of servicing a Speedster Deluxe, signed by Mike Soldano, for a musician friend. There was not much wrong it. The reverb was plugged in backwards and some solder joints needed to be re-flowed. I am going to spend some time today playing it just to make sure it is solid….


The real deal

The DeWitt 18 watt amp played the way it should be. The Cory Wilds Band at Angle Lake July 8th 2016. Mark Fleugal on bass, Ron Muir on drums, and Cory Wilds on guitar. Below is a short clip.    


The prototype is done!

The new experimental amp is done. This was built from a blank chassis using old trannies from a Blues Jr. If I like the amp I will replace the iron. It is a PTP/Terminal strip build. First one for me. I have been building with turret boards but since this is a proto I figured…


Speedster Class A ’40’

The Speedster Class A ’40’, what a cool amp. I happen to have a prototype in my possession and on my bench. It is awesome! I can’t say enough about how cool it is to get to crack open an amp like this and diagnose a problem. Turns out there was nothing wrong with the…


18 watt Prototype work continues

I built out most of the chassis today. I am really prototyping this build. I am going with an ef86 in V1. It should be a rocker. I have some old trannies for this proto and if it works out I will be going with iron from Allenamps. I am using terminal strips for this…


New 18watt prototype coming

I am going to start an 18 watt prototype build soon this week with an ef86 in the first preamp socket. This will be a PTP build with no board and just terminal strips. I have a couple of tranny sets from blues juniors to use for this build. I am excited about building an…


Killer B in snakeskin

I finally finished the second 59 Bassman clone. I built it for my harp playing friend. It is in a traditional tweed bassman chassis with a cut down 2×10 combo cab. It really looks great and sounds even better. I do prefer to build amps in chassis that have more room. The tweed style chassis…
