Re: Frank Zappa - where to start?

I know you don't want to go down the compilation route necessarily ... but Cheap Thrills is a really good start.

Re: Replacement 12AX7 Valve for early SWR Studio 220?

My EHX arrived yesterday, the guy is in Sydney but is an ebay seller. Only seems to sell the EHX tubes. PM me if you want the details. Am going to try it in my SWR tonight if the 8 week old gives me a chance. Have not been able to find any sellers in Sydney online, but you could try calling some of ...

Re: Victorian OzBassers roll call -- Alive and well?

Frequently the pleasure that an arsonsist derives from their actions is the attention it gets. Have sometimes wondered if the media stopped reporting on 'firebugs' whether it would reduce the occurance (as they get no attention).

Re: Replacement 12AX7 Valve for early SWR Studio 220?

Have had the same question for my Basic Black ... did some research and have decided to try the Electro Harmonix. Waiting on one to arrive, bought it on the 'bay from a guy in Sydney who was selling a bunch of them. You could try contacting Retrosound, http://www.retrosound.com.au/Amps/Amp_Parts/XTu...

Re: $950 RuddyRudd bonus - Your thoughts!

Like Aussie Mark, I earn too a bit much to get it and my wife is a stay at home mum, no income, thus not eligible ... ironically our household income is way less than 2 x $80k ... so there will be more than a few people who actually earn more than us who will get the $950x 2. Better than a poke in t...

Re: Best Price on Octavius Squeezer?

From the Chunk Systems thread - maybe a wait on unless you can find one 2nd hand I don't think there are any OSs in stock anywhere in the country at the moment, unfortunately. We sold through our first production run much faster than expected and we've had some delays from some of our suppliers on t...

Re: SWR Basic Black - Hum (new preamp tube?)

Thanks guys, opened up the amp last night and had a look at the tube, looks fine and is not making any odd noises when tapped. But hey, I'm no expert. It is a GT tube. Not sure my technical expertise (ie none) goes beyond changing the tube, so changing caps is definately beyond me - given that I don...

SWR Basic Black - Hum (new preamp tube?)

Hey guys, Thought I would post this question here before heading to TB. :peep: I have a mid 90's SWR Basic Black combo, I have noticed that when it is on it has a pronounced hum (even with nothing plugged in and the speaker not connected) Is this normal? It has never had the preamp tube replaced. Co...
