Just tried that and the A channel sounded the same, but Iím still going to try some cleaner.


Yes Iím ok with opening the amp up. There is rumor of a guy that lives here that used to work in Portland building PAís. Iíll try and track him down. What do you think I should tell him to look at?

Thanks you two for the quick response. Internet is hard to come by up here.

Geoff Daking was the drummer. He operates Daking Audio now. You could probably ask him some questions. He's a real gear head.

The Who also borrowed the Blues Magoos backline while touring with them and Herman's Hermits in'67. Additionally, they were likely the same amps used to record I can See For Miles:

The Kingsmen ("Louie Louie") had a B3 or M3 chopped and covered with Sunn Tolex. I saw it up close, but that was 100 years ago. Norm Sundholm was in the band. Barry Curtis was playing the keyboard.
Q & A / Re: Which bulb in tremolo circuit for 68 Sceptre?

If someone would put one of the SM-1 modules on the bench and do a voltage-to-resistance plot, that module could be duplicated. That is, plot a curve where 1v = X1 ohms, 2v = X2 ohms, 3v = X3 ohms. While I have a working SM-1 module, I'm not brave enough to try to take it out of the circuit to measure it. Like Conrad said, it's nothing special, but you do need the right values of incandescent lamp and CdS photocell.
