en Found a nice humped leather handle on Reverb.com

I keep checking out the the leather handles since I had some trouble with fender reissue.

two different leather handles from Fender. both don’t fit the old champ

the humped handle in the picture came from this company, Industrial Amps it looks very close to the original ones on fender tweed amps. but, the original seemed to have 3 layers. 

[udpate] it was 30 something dollars when I found it. and it’s now almost $50.

  • en 2.2″ front wheels and axles for RC10

  • I got myself this front axle mod idea from rc10talk.com forum when I wanted to put Yokomo 2.2″ wheels on my RC10 runners a couple of years ago. Associated #7222 axles are everything actually. there are not much left to do except for getting the axles if you want to use B4 or JC rulux wheels

     

    longer axle on the right side is ASC7222 that makes you can use none-offset wheels like B4’s, Yoke 4WD’s, and more

     

    Yokomo made TH-1 wheel adapters for RC10. early TH-1 came with front adapters as well. but later TH-1 didn’t

     
    I had managed to get a set of front hubs. but needed more. and got another set from a trick with Ultima hubs.

     

     

    got this after I trimmed the each side of Ultima front hub from TH-8 package above. the diameter is “slightly” larger for 3/16″ bearings. but the tiny play (gap) was fixed with Loctite. then I’v been using the hubs without a issue

  • en interesting amps and cabinet from John Mergili

  • recently got me a 5F1 champ cabinet for 10″ speaker from this guy. the quality is great indeed. I’ll update with some pics after I finish the amp inside of the tweed cabinet. a friend is playing his tweed champ with 12″ speaker more than the stock 8″. I’m going to start with WGS 10″ ceramic speaker which came with the cabinet.

  • en I’m into 5v4g than 5y3 with 6v6 tweed amps

  • [EDIT]

    I’m updating this post not to make people confused. I believed B+ was lower with 5v4g than 5y3. but 5v4g is increasing B+ and makes the bias warmer than 5y3. I guess it is the reason I feel the amps are more alive with 5v4g

    then I noticed the vintage amps with the original caps from 50’s and early 60’s are more vulnerable with 5v4g to 60hz hum. I’m just guessing leakage of the coupling caps and the filter caps could be the reason. I’m still enjoying 5v4g with the amps with new components. didn’t have an issue with my 5D3 which has new filter caps either. 

    [EDIT again]
    one of my 5V4G tubes shows very low B+. the 60hz hum came from it I believe

    there are more and better info for 5vg and 5y3 rectifiers on the gearpage.net 

    https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/swapping-rectifier-tubes-5ar4-vs-5r4-vs-5v4-vs-5y3.1382681/

     

    I hook up tweed champ, deluxe, and m-track 2×2 together while jamming with youtube. 5v4g sounds still alive with this stereo and digital setup to me. but, m-track 2×2 is cheap and sharing the one single full bandwidth with usb and instrument at the same time. it sounds good while using only one of them. it sucks when the knob is at the center.

    it’s the knob on m-track 2×2. don’t buy it if you want to use your guitar amps as monitor speakers while playing guitar through the direct input. maybe I’m just doing this wrong.

  • en How to spot Siemens, Tyco V23084-C2001-A303 relay and the counterfeit

  • I have emailed to dozens of electric part suppliers and messaged to ebay sellers for

    V23084-C2001-A303 to fix my E46 GM5 module.

    and I noticed most of them are counterfeit. this seller looked legit with the picture of NOS Siemens relay. but it didn’t go well.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-New-Tyco-Relay-V23084-C2001-A303-GM5-BMW-E46-X3-E39-E38-Grundmodul-Siemens/122754020496

    and it’s the the relays I got from this seller

    The original Siemens, Tyco, TE connectivity relays have molded bottom with thick and strong lead pins. and, you can buy this counterfeit relay on alibaba.com or aliexpress.com for less $1 each

    I’m talking to these two sellers for the original part. and one of them are running this web site

    http://www.bmwgm5.com

    I do trust this guy and made a purchase from his ebay store

    https://www.ebay.com/usr/bmwgm5?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2754

    also this seller has the original relay. but it’s V23084-C2002-A403

    the only difference between A303 and A403 is the contact material. and C2002 is sensitive type works with less current as far as I know. I’ll try them both and will update

    another seller sent me this picture. and it’s exactly the relay I’m after. you can see the pattern on the bottom but even many of the counterfeit have the patterns as well. but please see the pins carefully all the soldering pins are thick and look strong enough.

    I’m ordering a pair from this seller who sent me the picture

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/183304411194

    it took a couple of months to figure out which is the original and finally found these 2 sellers which I trust on ebay.

    I’ll update when they arrive

    and please someone advice me if V23084-C2001-A303 can be replaced with

    V23084-C2002-A403, or V23084-C2001-A403
