Due to the heavy bombing in World War II, #Magdeburg has less to offer in terms of cultural attractions than other cities of the same size. But of course there are still enough things to look at and the Hundertwasserhaus is without question one of real gems. Shortly thereafter follows the Magdeburg Cathedral, also a special landmark of the city.

🇬🇧Bagan (Burma) is an archaeological site perhaps less known than the Angkor complex in Cambodia, but it is very similar to it, and historically and archaeologically more interesting. Bagan Archaeological Zone is the formal name used to designate the historical region of the ancient Kingdom of Bagan. It is thought that probably more than 13,000 temples, pagodas and other religious structures were built here. It is a unique heritage built between the 11th and 12th centuries in this area. Together with Angkor and Borobudur it is among the most significant archaeological sites in Southeast Asia and the world.🏛🗿 • 🇮🇹Bagan (Birmania) è un sito archeologico forse meno noto del complesso di Angkor in Cambogia, ma è molto simile ad esso, e storicamente ed archeologicamente più interessante.

377V with Bendix 6106 5y3wgt which has purchased as NOS and less than 1 year old
366V with Hytron 5y3wgt which is many many years old
369V with GE 5y3gt less than 1 year old
393V with GE 5v4g which I purchased as NOS and less than 1 year old
396V with RCA 5v4g as NOS and less than 1 year old
370V with another Bendix I have purchased as slightly used condition a couple of months ago
btw, I recently scored this Bendix for $25 off ebay. but it just killed my 5F1’s fuse and the B+ is only 266V with 5D3. not every single Bendix lasts like forever
and, figured out why I had 60hz hum with this 5v4g. this one shows only 307v. I’m going to update the 5v4g thread
I met this little guy again this morning. and gave it RCA Command 5751 as a present. I’ve tried more than a few 12ax7 tubes with this Champ for a while. and love the sound with this 5751. and, one 6v6gt from Valvo factory in Frankfurt is coming to me for this Champ.
the 3rf filter cap is Sprague which replaced the big 8uf 500V Astron minimite last winter. it still has the 2 prong power cord even with the death cap. this 57-year-old Champ is beautiful and sounds great of course. but didn’t sing as much as my ’59 Champ till this morning. now it does sing like a magic.
pictures of the transformers are here
I keep checking out the the leather handles since I had some trouble with fender reissue.
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.
my jenen P12R came back from the re-cone job at my local speaker repair shop. this new cone I got off ebay doesn’t look like the original as I expected. but it still sounds very close to my silver P12R speaker came from the friend who gave me this P12R.
this tweed deluxe 5D3 came from December 1954. and the speaker came from a ’54 5C3. the date code one the speaker is 1953. they are like a family.
it’s not easy to pick only one speaker for my tweed deluxe so far. P12n is a great sounding speaker with it’s chime and volume. but I want a jensen which is crispy at the lower volume. maybe the bell cover doesn’t affect the sound. but me and the friends tested two different jensen p12r came from the same era. and the result was different at low volume in 5C3. and most of all, p12r looks way better with the bell.
it sounds really good with it’s look. even I like that red safety sticker on the bell.
