Amps, Effects & Recording Techniques / portable amp for the nord
« on: March 24, 2014, 12:02:05 PM »
hi all, im after a portable amp to use with the nord. i dont drive so it has to be portable for busses and trains. i've tried an AER acoustic amp which was perfect, but its way out of my budget (£100/$165). im looking at either;

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / custom miracle mod amazing !!
« on: June 01, 2012, 06:06:26 PM »
hi, i just installed a custom version of the miracle mod, by adding bumps

it feels really light compared to how it was. there is little hammer bounce now. whats more amazing is it took me about an hour. i  highly recomend this mod to anyone with the same action - mine is a '77 with plastic hammers with felt on the bottom, i left the felt on the bottom of the hammers, and put the bump on the edge of the pedalstal, it plays amazing now, it also reduced the key bounce.

next i am going to replace the grommets, and maybe extend the 2nd to top tip range down to middle C!!!!!

Amps, Effects & Recording Techniques / new tubes
« on: April 29, 2011, 01:47:59 PM »
im about to totally revalve my traynor ygl3a with JJ's. i have read on the net about biasing, and i cant figure out if thats if your changing valve types eg; el34's to 6L6's or if your changing the make eg eh to jjs. it currently has 4, 12ax7's, 4 el34's and an el84. can i just change the valves? or is there more to it then that?? the text on the current valves has faded, so i cant see what make they are, but i think they might be mullards.
