Q & A / Bright cap on Model T / why no Model T clone threads?
« Last post by _peter on May 16, 2017, 04:43:25 am »
Hi,

a friend of mine has a first generation Model T with one tremendous and several minor modifications.

Sometime around the eighties someone installed an additional small transformer and a 12V power supply.
Looks like West German parts as far as I can tell. The worst thing is, he added switches and LEDs to the faceplate.

Regarding the minor mods, I was able to change those back to stock. Only thing I am not sure about is a bright cap
on the "Brite" chanel's volume. According to the schematic there shouldn't be one. But it looks pretty much original.
Many manufacturers in the old days changed the circuit of their amps without updating the schematics.

So is it possible that there are Model Ts with a bright cap? Have you seen this? Does yours have one?

Cheers,
Peter

I don't, I opted for the new look. I've done a 2000S head, those two cabs and a 200S head and cab in 7005. The tolex on all of them scrubbed up mostly "new" looking, no ciggy burns, tears or obvious wear, so they came out sorta NOS looking.

Any pics of the Aged stuff?

The 7005 looks FANTASTIC though!

Thanks for the effort alcan, but we have pretty much hashed out the Wendell/Sunn grill cloth thing. The old (pre '69) cloth is what we need; many of us have bought and installed "like new" and "aged", both of which are the later Sunn fabric design.
 
Here's what a 2000S looks like in 7005;

I'm in contact now with Wendell fabrics. Here is what They have to say:

Jonathan:
Good morning.  I tried to call no answer.  We do offer both fabrics, DF 7005 and DF 8048.  You can go to our website www.wendellfabrics.com, and go to upper right hand corner and click MELLOTONE fabric samples and look at the fabrics.  Both of these fabrics pricing is $33.90 for 2 to 29 yards.  Width of fabric is 72 inches.  If you order less than 5 yards there is a $15.00 handling fee.  Of course customer pays freight from 29702, Blacksburg, SC by UPS.
Any other assistance I can give please feel free and contact me by email or you can call 864-839-6341 ext#23.
Thanks
Then I asked him which one he thought was more accurate, and this was his response:

Quote
The DF 8048 was made to reflect the DF 7005 when aged.  The old fabrics were run with saran which tends to yellow with age or UV light.

So anyways, when I receive the samples i will take some good clear pictures and post another reply for all to see. I think these are going to be the ticket for our Sunn Grill Cloth, at least the later silver cloth.

I've attached the fabric samples and current part numbers from Wendell, as well as my 2000S cab grill samples for comparison.

I have this amp since the mid 70's.  It is in good condition and has the original reverb foot switch.  I believe it is 100 watts with two 12 inch speakers.

Channel 2 has a Gain Switch, lo, normal, and distortion., a high boost, and a mid frequency switch with 3 setting giving you the option to change your sound from a Fender to a Gibson.   Amp Cover is included.
