Someone asked me the other day how I was going to fish the new potentiometer into place on this Gretsch hollow body. Well, like this using a length of surgical tubing. The soft tubing can be fished though the F hole with needle nose pliers & then stretched over the shaft of the pot. Wiggle […]

New nut day for the Gretsch @shroprockdoctor. One of the reasons this guitar came in was tuning instability related to tremolo use. Doing a visual I decided it was most likely the piece of crap nut that was fitted. I don’t think Gretsch would have fitted that nut to a guitar of this calibre. Anyway […]

Power socket mod @shroprockdoctor. Picked up another Cyclades PM10 intelligent PDU on ebay for a few quid. I use these in my studio to give either timed incremental start-up to the big racks or selected output via the rs232 software. Cyclades PM10i comes 32A rated with a fixed monster cable & molded 32A commando plug. […]

Cyclades incremental startup @shroprockdoctor. Individual socket times can be applied in software. Very useful too for studios that have a lot of equipment. #guitarfx #guitar #rackeffects #homerecordingstudio #guitarrepair #caudio #amplifier #bridgnorthbusiness  #shropshire #audiorepair #audiorecording #fender #squire #fenderamps #marshallamps #ibanez #Epiphone #gibson #peavey #laney #mesa #hughesandkettner #roland #prsamplifiers View this post on Facebook

Final part of the Hughes & Kettner job for Mr Charlton @shroprockdoctor. In addition to the memory battery in his zenTera head I was asked to make up a 10m interconnect cable to join the head to the Zboard controller. This proprietary cable is pretty elusive & pinout information was impossible to find so I […]

Marshall DSL100H in @shroprockdoctor after the owner had changed the valves, I assume he meant power output valves that failed to solve the problem. My investigation began at the front end checking voltages on tubes but all appeared good. Splitting the amp by outputting from the fx loop send proved the issue lay in the […]

Changing the volume potentiometer on the first of the signature model Brian Setzer Gretch guitars. This single control model is currently fitted with a CTS pot 500k linear +/-20% with standard rotational torque. For anyone interested the first image is from the CTS data sheet allowing you to decipher their code stamped into the rear […]

Cable build @shroprockdoctor. As requested by the owner of the H&K zenTera modeling amplifier the proprietary interconnect cable to join the head to the H&K Zboard foot controller is almost complete with just the db9 plug insert requiring soldering. After scouring the Internet for information regarding the pinout for this cable & drawing a complete […]

Hughes and Kettner ZenTera 200w stereo modelling head in @shroprockdoctor for a memory battery replacement. Had to install a different format cell to the original but it’s still a Varta Mempack 2.4v 80h rated package. Presets are now retained after a power down. This amp arrived with the H&K Zboard controller which requires the proprietary […]

Visiting @shroprockdoctor this morning is the first of three Gretch guitars from Mr McCreadie’s collection requiring work. This one has come in for a little attention to the volume potentiometer & the nut requires a little tweek as the strings sometimes stick when utilising the tremolo. This is the Brian Setzer Hot Rod Model, G6120SHPTV […]
