Vintage amp restoration and Beyond
That should do it.
I hear Mexico is nice this time of year.

It will be a few days before I can get to putting it in. I want to record some of the amp with the current transformer first to have a comparison recording and get an idea of how it sounds to now. :toast:

Apologies for taking so long to get a sound clip up and continue on. I did put something down but I wasn't happy with my playing so I need to try again. headbang

I wouldn't worry too much about the playing. You've heard me, right? You'll sound like gold by comparison!

It sounds as it should to me. Granted, I was expecting a bit more gain, but that's probably the non cascading side, I'm guessing. I would like to hear it with a dirt pedal out front and some tasty reverb. That should set it off. I want to hear the KK channel too!

Is that the Hammond power supply?

Diggin' the chops, and the backing track!  :toast:

Did you hear the solo guitar after the backing track ?
This is with the original P.T. and O.T. transformer. I've yet to fit the new O.T. As mentioned before , it overheated when cranked so I only took it up to the 7's and 8's.  I wanted to see how it sounded before I changed it.
It is through the KK channel, not the added [Vase ] one.
I'll fit the new O.T. soon and then do all this over again; Straight in , then with some  pedals, and cranked.

I almost feel like you took what I said as a negative. Don't do that!

I say, " It sounds as it should," based on the comparison of my Windsor/2203. The comparison is me being a metal head. If I think KK, ballz out hits my brain. That's just my stupid shit. With my Pre around 7, and master at close to the same, I can play Big 4 and get away with it. Using that same amp, with the Gain dialed back to Plexi levels, it's so close on a recorded tone, it's scary!

47.3? That thing is close to 200W! You sick fuck! I can't use my 50W up, much less 200W stereo. I hope you have earmuffs...
