Re: Studio Preamp issues (SOLVED)

Thanks for taking the time to post this. I actually had a bad orange drop in my 2:90 causing havoc. Also I did a recap on my studio pre (Just the elec.) A few years back...but I noticed my eq and lead led`s are getting pretty dim. Was wondering if you noticed any change in brightness to them before/...

Re: 2:90 Parts list

Hey...man sorry but it was years ago. Honestly don't have a list anymore. Used a combo of Amazon,EBay and Small bear electronics iirc. Was shocked at the time to find it was a bad orange drop that had failed (especially because some very good amp techs had informed me they hardly ever go bad). I say...

Re: Has anyone re-capped his 'old' preamp?

I did...when I re capped my 290 (have pics in a thread on here somewhere). It sounds much cleaner now...was worth it for me.
Compared to the 2:90,it was not that hard to do.
Tip here..... de-soldering braid works MUCH better than a suction device.

Re: 2:90 Not working on B channel

I had a bad A channel due to a shorted C16 orange drop.
I was told not to go chasing orange drops because they "usually don't go bad"...Low and behold after a long time searching...that's what it was.
Glad you fixed it.

Re: Mark IV Problems

Gonna keep an eye on this thread. I have a 2:90 power amp that I have never had repaired that does the same thing. From what I understand the 2:90 and Iv power amp sections are pretty similar. I gave up when I could not find a local tech that I trusted that was willing to deal with a pcb amp with a ...

Re: Boosting a Studio Preamp

I would occasionally use a ts9 but now just boost via eq.or volume with the gm2 for solos and such. I also think the pre (at least mine does) has a TON of gain on tap and is not real happy trying to stuff more drive into it.My pre without the gate on is very noisy and super annoying with a boost in ...

2:90 EL34 on half the amp...

I have a strange question. I am currently running my 2:90 on one channel (due to a faulty "A"side that I can't afford to get repaired). I would like to try the 6l6/el34 split. According to eurotubes, I need to run the 34s in the outer sockets (old 2/90). I was going to try and save a buck by only bu...

Is it ok to be a Di*k when...

I just joined back up with some old band mates to jam/potentially do a few gigs. We have a very limited timeset to practice (actually in a garage in a tight spaced neighborhood) so we need to be in/out/done by nightfall.Everyone got cd's and tab for all the songs we are doing. Last practice I spent ...

Re: Help: Volume jumps with 2:90

I had a very similar problem. My amp would drop the A channel volume and I would loose all bass response (sounded tinny). I went as far as probing with a meter and replacing a questionable ldr. No luck. I ended up buying a 50/50 cheap. I still have the 290 and it works good for a mono amp. Maybe som...
