Re: Forums have been slow, how about a 'In the mail' thread?

I started uni in 94 and that's where I discovered pinball. Twilight Zone and Addams Family in the student union I believe, and Fish Tales. Then the arcade near work with Demolition Man (the one Sly movie even Rob Schneider couldn't ruin Beeg!), and Star Trek TNG. All cool games! I was hesitant to b...

And let's not mention my old star wars figures that suffered brutal viking funerals at the hands of guy Fawkes 😃 crazy money nowadays also!! No regrets tho, still remember fondly launching them back into space where they were meant to be or blowing their limbs off courtesy of Tom thumbs & double...

Re: Forums have been slow, how about a 'In the mail' thread?

I bought the first issue when new, continued for years. They sadly went in the bin..... oh and Marvels Star Wars comics. Shitting hell... Remember as a kid going to the second hand bookstore with mum, she'd be updating her mills & boon collection & I was allowed a comic. They usually had a ...

I agree, would like to see him reprise the role with some Deadworld element from the comics

Completely & utterly not guitar related but this may hold some form of nostalgia for the British folk on here? Pick up my Judge Dredd pin next week! I am now on a self imposed trademe ban. Screenshot_2022-08-04-20-38-52-19_e2dcd05661dfebeb123569377c1f4abc.jpg I can't help feeling like I've play...

Re: Big glass, big iron & god?

I wonder what the actual power output of this monster is? It might be beyond the capabilities of most attenuators! When Audio34 (amp tech) had the amp in for tube replacement they measured output as: 81 watts RMS clip point & 132 watts RMS max So perhaps not as formidable as it may appear. Inte...

Re: Big glass, big iron & god?

That's cool (well I think so anyway). My MJT body came with a little verse inside (John 3:16), which they had taken the time to translate into te reo Maori. ;-) Speaking of which, 4 x KT88 must sound like the voice of God too? The other reference is John 3:16, that is inside the head shell. The KT8...

Big glass, big iron & god?

Big glass in the form of a KT88 quad & big iron in the form of some beefy Heyboer transformers, all working harmoniously to supply ample power for a hot rodded JCM800 type circuit IMG20220802005909.jpg IMG20220802010153.jpg A lot of power & great tone. Is there anything that could give this ...

Re: Valuation resources

Would like to say a big THANK YOU to anyone & everyone that chipped in with advice, it was all appreciated. Having had the amps for a while & the scarcity of these amps in NZ had me unsure of their value. Through my own assumptions, research & the forums valuable input I came up with two...

Re: Brutal elimination 3 way?

Good times. FYI the 1987 and 800 will be out of phase, not sure about the other one. Was fun but certainly not scientifically accurate or a true representation of each amp unfortunately. Have spent the last 2 hours conducting more accurate testing with a quality ABY pedal (isolated outputs, ground ...

Re: Brutal elimination 3 way?

Matching PG guitars? Very cool, but was there a reason for two, outside of.. just cause ya can? Got the second one cheap. Needed another guitar at the time for a different tuning in a live situation. Found it really comfortable being able to switch to a guitar that was instantly familiar during a s...
