LSC with EL84's vs the LSS.Also 6V6

Hi there, I have owned 2 LSS combo's (1x12 and 2x12) and I have briefly owned a 2x12 LSC. I know the special far more than the classic, as I only had the classic for maybe 2 weeks max and it was 5 years ago or so. I have always loved the chime from the LSS. It's the EL84's I presume. According to th...

Re: Changing Speaker, are connections are soldered?Need help please

Hi,thanks for the reply.I have found someone to add some connections on to the end of the cables.Should work ok for quickly a/b ing. Then i can get it properly soldered when I decide which speaker to keep.Unless theres no real need to solder, or is it a better connection I wonder?

Re: Road king 2 cutting out.Foot switch maybe?

I guess the switch could be going between tuner mute and say channel one,or going from channel one to another channel and back really fast.What makes me think it was the foot switch is the fact that it stopped instantly once the foot switch was removed.It also only happened at high volume.Maybe the ...

This is the connection part on the amp now and not the foot switch?

Re: Road king 2 cutting out.Foot switch maybe?

Ya, once the footswitch was removed the amp worked grand.Straight away in fact.Hasnt given any trouble since either so all is good.I did message boogie on facebook and they said it sounds like the foot switch caused it.But I think the person on facebook is just there for promotion, more so than trou...

Road king 2 cutting out.Foot switch maybe?

Hi there,I just got to try a road king 2 that i am considering purchasing.Sounds great but there seemed to be an issue with what i think is the foot switch.Basiclally I was using channel 3 and the volume was at about 11 oclock and the amp started cutting out like a tremolo effect.At first I thought ...

Re: RA100 Combo with Creamback G12H-75

I was debating if I should go with the G12H-65 (based on the greenback speaker) since it had a brighter or pushed mids at the upper end. However, based on a recommendation from someone here (CORY) I chose the G12H-75 Creamback speakers. Thanks a lot Cory, I am very happy I came across your thread. ...

Tube protection cage not on older models?Want to rackmount.

I picked up a 2x12 LSS combo recently for gigging.It looks like its a few years old.Still in good condition but certainly isnt fresh out of the factory by any means.My plan had always been to get the 2x12 for recording as it sounds bigger than the 1x12(had a 1x12 before) and then rack mount the chas...

Re: Lone star EQ suggestions

I think its because of the high headroom and mid scoop on the clean channel that the muff isnt sounding how you want.muffs and fuzzes generally sound better into an amp with lots of mids and where the power section is compressing a bit.it smooths out the square waves of the fuzz.I have the special a...
