Fixed some connections in a Godin XTSA:

Fixed stuff in an amp that I repaired before, but this was an entirely different problem:

Did a setup on a Warwick bass(action, intonation, etc) + fret treatment + an extensive fretwire cleaning

It will come back for a pot problem in the near future.

Before and after pics of the neck!

Some updates

 

* Modified an old strat which previously had a tremolo ( a Romanian "Madrigal"), on the exact requests of the customer

- mounted a floyd rose/stud inserts(no routing!) and straightened the fine tuner tension plate for a flatter bottom

- adjusted the pickguard width at the studs to fit(aesthetical cutting and filing)

- shimmed the neck

- mounted a locking nut after the stock nut, and also adjusted some height differences;

- general setup and restring

 

Before:

* Fixed a Hiwatt Maxwatt combo (the power amp was shot, the speaker blew out also)

IMG_20160828_143500.jpgIMG_20160828_143521.jpg

 

* Rewired a Brent Hinds Epiphone Flying V, using the parts provided (a pain to clean, like always :D), and also added a killswitch instead of the push pull that was destroyed by the previous wiring.

Some before and after pics:

* Thoroughly cleaned a BMW Bluetooth Module, which had some problems(glitchy signal,coming on and off), and apparently that did the trick

IMG_20160910_090646.jpg

 

* Diagnostics on a Boss AC-2 (not yielded anything, it works fine for me)

IMG_20160910_090909.jpg

 

* Unfortunately, this SM57 is beyond repair :(

IMG_20160910_120703.jpg

 

* Tried to fix the DSP part of a Crate Acoustic Combo, but so far, the prospect is bleak

Some updates :)

 

* Built a 2in1 Pedal: Hjärt Müller Bass Drive + Sadowsky Preamp (always on).
Really nice pedal for a bass! The Sadowsky as an always on preamp was a request of the customer.
The Bass Drive is the only one on a true bypass switch.
IMG_20160924_233844-01.jpegIMG_20160924_233712-01.jpegIMG_20160925_121324.jpg
 

 

* Fixed a Thomann T. Amp.
Had some problems at the power section and output section also
IMG_20160915_233805.jpg
 
 
* Fixed a Warwick Bass.
The active preamp had a short 
IMG_20160917_200837.jpgIMG_20160917_200939.jpgIMG_20160917_210707.jpgIMG_20160917_210800.jpg
 
 
* Proel wireless monitor system cleanup.
Had some really oxidized connections and whatnot 
IMG_20160919_200210.jpgIMG_20160919_201320.jpg
 
 
* Had the same Maya Japanese strat in , this time for a rewiring with SCN pickups.
The previous wiring which I did was fiddled by someone (pfff), and I mounted some other parts from another guitar, that were obviously wired badly.
I cleaned everything really well, and redid the wiring.
Turned out just fine. (posted some before and after pics with intermediate steps)

* A Fender Telecaster MIM setup
IMG_20160921_232958.jpgIMG_20160921_232944.jpgIMG_20160921_233149.jpgIMG_20160921_233154.jpgIMG_20160921_233200.jpg
IMG_20160921_232803.jpg
 
 
* An original idea that the owner had of replacing the illumination in a microscope; a crude simple form,
 but it works well; maybe this will be updated in the future.

An Ibanez S came in for some general tweaks (setup, some rust removal, fixed a loose insert ,etc)
Now it plays great and the intonation is good

Changed all the capacitors in an old Solton GV60 amp from the 70s, and also measured all the resistors and changed the ones that were off/dead.Needs just a little more tube tweaking , but it's "there" :D

* Fixed an Xotic RC Booster pedal which had been previously tinkered with

IMG_20161211_123706.jpg
 
 
* Checked the electronics and also cleaned the pots in an ESP LTD EC-500
IMG_20161212_233003.jpg
 
 
* Another Wampler Triple Wreck Clone (my second one)

* A Mesa Boogie DC-3 combo came in for some repairs -> the investigation is pending (what I did also was to redo the soldering on the power tube sockets, someone reheated the solder and added too much along with a ton of flux...UGLY! :D )
A Mesa is hard to work on anyway...and my tomcat Blacky isn't helping haha!

* A Roland Jazz Chorus 55 came in for some checkups and repairs.
I changed one severely damaged pot, cleaned the rest, and also redid some solder points.
The plug didn't have the grounding wire attached so I changed the plug. 
Unfortunately, the speakers have to be changed.
The customer will later come back with some Jensen C8R-s 
A really really nice sounding amp!!

I also changed the nut to a Graph Tech one

Terminate 4 pedale pt un singur om! :respect:

Wampler Faux Analog Echo Delay Clone - Pharaoh Fuzz Clone - Suhr Riot Clone - Keeley 4 Knob Comp Clone

Putin de OCD de estetica :lol: chiar si la lucrurile ce nu le vedeti

Urmeaza in curand inca un Delay ca cel de mai sus (pentru prima data vandut in afara , un neamt a auzit cum suna si a vrut si el unul ;) )

Urmeaza si o varianta interesanta mai custom de EP booster cu 3 knobs, si 1 sau 2 switchuri externe + internal bias adjustment + 18V internal doubler pt un user de pe forum.

The Wampler Faux Analog Echo delay clone for the German dude :D (pedal build no. 104!)

IMG_20170218_142652.jpgIMG_20170218_142041.jpgIMG_20170218_142027.jpg

 

 

 

A Mesa Boogie .50 Cal came in for a tube swap and also a chassis correction of a screw that was rusted and stuck (I actually drilled in the broken screw to take it out, and managed to keep the original hole intact :D )

IMG_20170124_103403.jpgIMG_20170127_174915.jpgIMG_20170127_174926.jpgIMG_20170127_174945.jpgIMG_20170127_175047.jpg

 

 

 

An Epiphone LP came in for some tweaks/setup/neck clean/etc and an output jack swap (a lot of stuff were loose, the stud inserts even came out by hand easily...scary)

IMG_20170124_110417.jpgIMG_20170124_110429.jpgIMG_20170124_110636.jpgIMG_20170124_110655.jpgIMG_20170124_110659.jpg

 

 

 

A strat copy rework
-rust removal
-rewiring+ changed the output jack
-fretwire clean
-fretboard and neck clean
-nut clean and adjustments
-setup as best as possible (not the best guitar to work on...)

Some before and after pics

A Legend strat (MIJ) setup, neck/fretboard clean, fretwire clean; changed almost all screws and also the knobs + changed the output jack (also tinkered internally with the switch, that had some mechanical problems; didn't have one on hand, but will maybe come in at some point to put in a new one)

A Warwick Corvette SS came in for a setup, fretwire + fretboard clean, some wiring issues were solved, and also installed a new tuning key because the old one broke off. Also had to take off the brass nut which was loose and re-file the base of the neck and reglue the nut back.

Had to do some rust removal on some screws (besides taking aparat the whole bridge and cleaning stuff)

Installed a new Graph Tech nut on a Morris Acoustic.

There was some work because the base had to be slanted(like the original nut), so I filed it down accordingly :D

Also, had to adjust the height on E , B and G separately.

On the old nut, the Low E and the High E(especially), were too low.

Setup on a brand new Fender US Strat with a fixed bridge (still has the protective pickguard foil on heh).

I also checked the wiring and cleaned the pots and switch; also, I tightened up things on the whole guitar.

* Finished an EP Booster with an internal voltage doubler(you input 9V, and internally there is 18), and some other tweaks (extra tone cut pot and a boost pot + a three way bass pot).

A really great sounding variant!

You can even get some nice grit out of it maxed

105th pedal built

 

IMG_20170305_152235.jpgIMG_20170305_152028.jpgIMG_20170305_152258.jpg

Changed some stuff around, even better

* Replaced the original switch which was faulty, with an identical one, in a Framus Panthera.

Some updates :) (busy busy)

 

*Fixed an Alesis Monitor

IMG_20170224_085101.jpgIMG_20170224_085105.jpg

 

 

*The Mesa Caliber .50 (same one) came back, because previously the owner did not mention it had real problems (so it did not need just a tube swap).

Had to diagnose everything, took off the board (desoldered the 29 wires haha), and measures everything I could, and also cahnged some filter caps.

Played it for some days, and it does not exhibit the same problems so far. Unfortunately the amp has a very dodgy PCB,so I really don't know how much life it has in it hehe; I also resoldered some things. It works OK now, but we shall see.

I already hate mesa amps :):tardlol:

*Fender MIM Strat - pup change and a setup and I changed the nut also; the old one had the D string way too low (I put in a nice graphtech and also brought it perfectly to size and filed down the slots to accommodate the radius also)

Before and after!

*2 MXR Pedals in repairs - Fixed an MXR Micro amp and the MXR Blue Box is still in repair

IMG_20170331_233158.jpgIMG_20170331_231902.jpgIMG_20170409_151041.jpg

 

 

*Finished a DOD 280 Modded Compressor, that works very well for bass and guitar also.

I took the time to mod and test this one, you can see all the sockets :D

Very transparent, and it lets all the frequencies through!

106th pedal built

Chiar, de ce trebuie meciuiți tranzistorii într-un fuzz, că doar nu e modulator? 

Am observat, in UNELE fuzzuri, cu cat sunt mai multe tranzistoare, cu atat diferenta de HFE intre ele (in general daca e mare, deci se matchuie just sa be safe within limits),poate genera un sound sa zicem..."fara nimic", ciudat, liniar, steril.

Nici nu pot sa explic, dar poate sa il transforme din fuzz fat wooly cu ceva caracter, in ceva pur si simplu buzz saw weirdness, dar NEVOIT, adica intr-un design care nu e facut sa sune asa.

Cum omul a vrut ceva cat mai apropiat de ce era pedala originala, am zis sa be safe :)

Oricum nu aveam BC239C, si am zis daca tot iau sa be on the safe side, si sa iau mai multe dar matched.
