5v4g rectifier makes tweed champ and deluxe more alive. it lowers B+ and, gives more headroom. but still has the character. and the breakup still good.
I got stepped closer to the stage or somewhere inside of the studio where the band is playing while I’m hooked up champ, deluxe, and m-track 2×2 together. 5v4g sounds better with this setup to me.
The manufacturer is Industrial Amps
This one looks very close to the original humped leather handle on Fender tweed amps from 50’s.
I once lost my original handle few months ago. then tried Jayco and Fender handle at the time. the first one I got from fender didn’t fit tweed champ like this.
003-6129-049 arrived today. unfortunately, it doesn’t fit either. this 9″ handle from Fender has identical length to the 50’s original. but the slots are not wide enough. but it still better than 099-0945-049. it looks easy to extend the slots.
And, I noticed 003-6129-049 fits the original wide panel tweed deluxe. this tweed deluxe currently has Jayco handle on it. they look almost identical to each other. and, I see the sewing stitches are better on Jayco.
it came with a narrow panel champ. I see 4 layers from this side
the dimensions are like this
overall length 9″ (23cm)
handle mount center to center 7″ (17.8cm)
slot to slot (inside) 6″ (15cm)
and, I’m using this to protect my leather stuff. belts, shoes, and for this old handle as well.
5y3 rectifier tube in my tweed champ went dead a month ago. and everything was fine after I put a new one.
then, the same thing happened today. I figured out this 16uf 450V Astron minimite filter cap was the problem.
Sprague 16uf 475v fits Astron Minimite 16uf 450V paper sleeve. my champ sounds firm and clear than ever with this new cap.
You need to strip off the blue shrink cover to put it in the paper sleeve as you can see
Sadly, I’ve lost 2 of these 5y3 tubes from this issue. but still good with the better sounding from this small tweed amp.
기타 코드를 왼쪽 리이슈와 오른쪽 오리지날에 옮겨 연결하면서 연주합니다.
소리 성향은 비슷하지만 앰프 주인이 말한 것처럼 리이슈는 담요를 한장 덮은 것 같이 답답합니다. 둘 다 NOS 튜브를 사용했구요. 스피커가 아직 길들지 않은 차이를 감안해도 비슷한 톤에 아주 다른 느낌입니다.
