PostForum: All Other Guitars   Posted: Sun May 21, 2017 10:27 pm   Subject: Need help from rickenbacker type peoples!

I have a '74. It really is an awesome amp. I can only assume that it will work nicely as a jazz amp, but I know it works well as a "turn it all the way up" amp.

Since it's an old Fender, keep your bass knob only at 2 or lower, if you set it higher it will sound flabby and eventually fart out.


Noted and done!

I've been playing it in a band type situati ...

So, I haven't done any of the things that you guys suggested that I try. Except I did look at these speakers for visual damage and checked for ohms etc.

Totes longshot: are the speakers wired together correctly to match the impedance the amp wants?

Sounds like Smallbox might have nailed it for you, though.

Will absolutely check the wiring when I ...

Yeah, I have 2 40w speakers for a 40w amp. It's not that my speakers aren't rated for the amp. At least on paper. As I understand it the Jensen P10R is the "vintage voiced" speaker, while ...

I will check this evening. But it definitely has the sound of a speaker exceeding its capacity. Like Bone Thugs & Harmony blasted through the stock speakers of a 1988 Ford Escort. Shit's just fa ...

So, I recently had my '74 Vibrolux brought back from the dead. I bought it in really rough shape and never got to hear it before it was restored. I really like the way it sounds, you know, like a Fe ...

Yeah, iirc he only had 2 or 3 hrs for labor at $30/hr. He has markup in the tubes and such as well as insisting that I use expensive replacement speakers. My thinking was that I could buy parts as I ...

Good. He had a sweet old Silvertone amp up as well for $200. I was considering maybe not making my house payment for a little while.
