Q & A / Re: Modify my 100S Sunn Amp?
« Last post by Ryan Phelps on August 12, 2017, 01:50:02 pm »
Well, I have not tried this. However, in my area the cost of a Sunn 100S and a blackface Fender Bassman or Bandmaster is roughly the same. The platform is very different and the cost of modifying the Sunn would result in a larger total investment than a Fender. will have devalued the Sunn. Who is going to want it when you are done with it? Just my 2 cents.
Q & A / Modify my 100S Sunn Amp?
« Last post by jerryjg on August 11, 2017, 07:27:19 am »
Since they are a relatively low value amp( i kinda put the them in the same category as old Traynors), I would like to inquire about modding my 60's 100S. My question is, has anyone modified  an old 100S ( I wouldn't mod a 1200S- I don't think modding a 100S would be sacralige-lots of people mod the old Traynor Bassmasters to good effect to make them sound more Marshall-y) to  make the 100S sound more Blackface Fender-y specifically ?

Probably just blowing smoke as it's probably  unlikely it could be done, just thought I'd check. So has anyone modified the old 60's Sunns at all, and to sound like what?
Q & A / Re: 215SH - 215RH ?

I don't know this, but as a guess RH should stand for "reflex horn" (e.g. like the original Sunn 2x15 cabs, as well as Musicman 115RH or 212RH which are essemntially the same design, but the size of the Sunn cabs).  Basically it would be a rearl oaded horn (you can see the drive units, and there is some direct radiation of sound) and the horn isn't a full proper horn.  There is na large than usual compression chamber behind the driver, like a ported box size, with a rather small/narrow horn throat; a bit of a ported/horn hybrid.

"SH" I would guess stands for "scoop horn."  That would be either a front or rear loaded horn but with a proper curved (usually concave, but could be convex) scoop style horn; think Jamaican sound system.

Also this cabinet has a warranty sticker that has a name printed on it and a signature embossed on it. it's kind of cool small sticker it's a sun warranty label I guess does anybody know anything about this? is that name the guy's name that owned the cabinet originally?

I'm not all that familiar with the Scorpions, but, from what little I know, I'd think they'd be fine. Best way is to put them in and try it out.

My Model T, one of the first 2G models (doesn't have red knobs!) has a 3-prong plug and a polarity switch. It was made around 1976, I think.

The original '66 smiley face amps didn't have a ground switch or a 'Death cap'. You probably got a mild shock no mater what you touched. Conrad probably had to deal with that issue.
