This thread links to Jason Lollar's blog. Has a couple of good, no nonsense articles on selection of volume and tone pots and selection of tone capacitors. Also has an interesting article on factors that can cause older pickups to get dull and weak.

Speaker field repair and ressurrection tips.

HERE'S a post revealing some of John's tips and procedures for field repair and rescue of (many, but not all) damaged speakers, along with some ruminations on speaker aging and certain types of damage.

Note: These tips are no real substitute for a proper factory recone of a speaker, but they can often save a speaker that's showing certain problems related to aging and (sometimes) abuse. Not of them are very difficult if you're at all careful, don't require any specialized technical expertise, and use cheap, easily obtainable materials.

There are also a couple of tips concerning things to be aware of when purchasing used speakers.

I've been putting about 90 mins to four hours a day (average five days a week) practising the guitar the last 18 months or so. I agree with this article. In fact, the whole site is a mine of great info!

Here's a link to my post on a paper by Bill Whitlock, former head of Jensen Transformer, on the subject of ground loops.

Ernie Ball Extra Super Slinkies. I'm assuming you meant ".008", right?

I've actually seen string sets as light as .006, but not very recently.

Oh boy!

I'll add a link to "Why is Just Intonation Impractical":


https://music.stackexchange.com/ques...on-impractical



Here's a quote:

"I want to make an addition to all these excellent answers.

With just intonation, it's not possible to make all the chords just. Not even in a single key.

Let's look at the common just major scale based on I, IV and V just major triads:

C 1:1 D 9:8 E 5:4 F 4:3 G 3:2 A 5:3 B 15:8

In this scale, I, IV, V major triads (4:5:6) and iii and vi minor triads (10:12:15) are just.

But ii minor triad is out of tune: D-F interval is 32:27 instead of 5:6. This is ~294 cents vs 316, which is worse than the equal tempered 300.

Worse yet, D-A interval is 40:27 instead of 3:2; 680 cents vs 702, again way worse than the equal tempered 700.

One way to fix it is to flatten D down to 10:9 but this will break the V major triad. There's simply no way of making them all just without adding more notes. Not even in a single key."



Its the "not even in a single key" part that clinches it, imo.


Best,
