    Let’s talk Fender grounding methods. Here we have a 1966 Fender “Deluxe Reverb.” As I have mentioned before, around this time (when C.B.S. acquired the company and implemented many detrimental changes), the ground connections in the amps were moved from the chassis themselves to lugs fastened to the transformer mounting bolts. This was BAD, for two primary reasons: those bolts come loose over time as the amp is handled, and those connections corrode due to the different metals contacting each other. So, when I get an amp like this, I discuss it with the customer and then fix the issue. I remove the grounds from these lugs (leaving them in place because they’re toothed and also act as lock washers for the bolts) and solder them directly to the chassis, as Leo intended.  In the first pic, I’ve circled the lugs and bolts in question. Note a previous tech installed a grounded power cable (good), but just added another nut and fastened the green ground wire to an existing transformer bolt (not so good). The second pic shows everything sorted. The power cable ground has extra length and its OWN solder joint in the upper right hand corner, as modern safety code dictates. The bias supply ground is the arrow in the lower right corner. The high voltage winding center tap and first node filter cap grounds are in the circle at center left. All is happy now, and most importantly, SAFE. #guitaramp #guitaramps #ampporn #amplifier #amptech #amprepair #workbench #backlinetech #tubeamp #tubeamplifier #guitaramplifier #guitartone #fender #fenderamp #fenderamps #deluxereverb #fenderdeluxereverb #fenderblackface #vintageamp #vintagefender #guitarshop #6v6 #6v6tubes #12ax7 #12at7

    Every once in a while we like to introduce you to our colleagues. A couple of days ago, we were able to ask Technical Director Thorsten Hagen about his job at #Radiopark. Here's what he had to say:

1. Thorsten, since when have you been working for Radiopark?
I have been with the company since 2003!

2. How does your typical work-day look like?
I have a rather large variety of tasks so naturally, I don't have a typical workday. Part of my tasks is project-management and audio-planning as well as the handling of internal and external requests.

Read more tomorrow!

    There’s a direct relationship between how good a vintage amp sounds and how well worn it looks.... 1962 Fender Super.  Might be the best Telecaster amp I’ve played in years. Player priced at CDN $2595. 
Speakers are Fender-branded Jensen C10Ps from 1965, output transformer is a Mercury FBS-O.  Perfectly serviced, and sounds like a million bucks.

    @engl_amps Fireball 100. One of the most devastatingly heavy amps of all time. Tight, precise, and thick with a sinister character like no other. 📸 @alexjlopez4

2. EQD Cloven Hoof Fuzz
3. Midfi Magick I OD
4. 1981 Inventions DRV Distortion
5. TC Electronic 3rd Dimension Chorus
6. EQD Grand Orbiter Phaser
7. Demedash Effects T-120 Delay
8. Walrus Audio Fathom Reverb
9. SolidgoldFX BC108 Boost
- TC Electronic Polytune Mini
- Dr. Scientist Spectrum Analyzer
All on a Temple Audio Duo 24, running through a Boss ES-8, powered by a Cioks DC10 Link.
