Gibson Goldtone Les Paul Jr. Amp

I just purchased my first electric guitar amp. A Gibson Goldtone Les Paul Jr. Amp. Every time I plug the amp in, it starts to make this low humming noise and does not stop. Is that normal because it is a tube amp? Or is there something wrong? Any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks

Here are two quotes directly from the notes of a renowned amp designer/engineer, copyright acknowledged.

1. "Bias is a negative voltage fed to the tubes. It makes them work right and sound right. If it is off - underbias (too little voltage) the tubes will glow red hot, the amp will hum and sound bad." On some amps, you can set the bias yourself.

But it is more likely this: 2. "Old amplifiers very rarely have had the bias filter capacitor replaced. If it is bad it sends a hum into the amp." Upgrade or replace.

In general, capacitors in the power supply are used to filter residual hum(ripple)from the DC voltage that the power supply provides to the tubes in the amp. The power supply takes the AC voltage from the wall outlet and converts or rectifies it into DC. Any ripple left in the DC from inedequate filtering is audible as hum. Over years, the inside of the capacitors dries out and they become ineffective. Any electronics shop can replace the filter caps. It should be a very inexpensive job (under $50) so if the shop starts quoting bigger numbers, go somewhere else!

Making a buck off of a tragedy, Dimebags Murder

I must confess that I have not heard any of his guitar licks, but I hear the man was phenomenal. I think that folks making money off trinkets, tickets, and his image after his murder are at best Ace holes. What about decency? He has a family, think of them. When you have to stoop to selling crap and making money from the death of others, you cease being a human being. Boycott the auctions. Save your money. Buy a cd instead. Thanks.

Re: Making a buck off of a tragedy, Dimebags Murder

As I heard some guitarshops raised the price for a washburn dimebag signature, just one day after he was murdered.....
when i'm right, you have to pay 70 $ more now... just because he was murdered... that's unhuman... they make money of a dead legend.... that's not fair....

Re: Making a buck off of a tragedy, Dimebags Murder

let me teel you a story;
sucking money out of half-warm corpses is called economy
economy rules the world, not your president
the only thing you can do is to not get involved with this decadence, allthough the working-man is powerless.

my respects to darryl an the rest of pantera

thanks for making some aspects of the world worth living (and yes i mean music)

Are you asking how to enlist? Just WHAT does one have ANYTHING to do with the other?

These peaceniks enjoy THeIR freedom, but refuse to lift a finger to help anyone else obtain THEIR freedom.

Re: Making a buck off of a tragedy, Dimebags Murder

A friend actually saw Dimebag's shot up shirt being sold on ebay. Now that is just so sick that someone would even dare to do a thing like that. Unbelievable.

Re: Making a buck off of a tragedy, Dimebags Murder

Man, the guy was a legend.
I only started listening to his work seriously in the last few months. I used to think no guitarist could ever match Kirk Hammett, and i think its a shame no-one has heard of Dimebag, but i've shown all my mates and they're starting to worship the guy like i do so i think everyone should at least listen to Dimebag's work before jumping to false conclusions, coz i guarantee u won't be disappointed.

Jackson or Ibanez Floyd Rose?

What do you think is better? a jackson lic. Floyd Rose,
or an Ibanez Edge Pro Tremolo? I'M just wondering whats better for holding the tuning....

Slayer

Re: Jackson or Ibanez Floyd Rose?

Id say the original floyd is better than both, because that jackson floyd is a cheapo jap version and that ibanez machine, well, its an ibanez, thats it, original floyd all the wAY...LOW PROFILE TOO.

Re: Jackson or Ibanez Floyd Rose?

The "edge" is used by Vai in JEM model... I'd say that choose Edge

Hi. I have a 1960 Silvertone accoustic guitar. It has F-holes in the body, and it is in excellent condition. It's basically a sunburst color. Does anybody know how much this is worth? It's my grandfathers and it is very special to me. Thanks.

Columbus guitars

Hi,
I have a Columbus lead guitar and want to know more about Columbus, who and where are they and what model is mine?????, can anybody help??????
Cheers

Re: Columbus guitars

Columbus wre without doubt one of the worst guitars ever made, all models are rubbish.
ive seen a few around in the mid 80's and the quality beggars belief.
I suppose you could use it as a doorstop, chisel out the inside, cut off the neck and use it as a large ashtray? maybe a fruit bowl? do they make plywood fruitbowls?

Re: Columbus guitars

: Hi,
: I have a Columbus guitar too...
i belive is from the late 60´s...
i don´t know nothing about it , but i have to tell that it has an amazing twang and i will put a bigsby on it next month...
i don´t belive the guitar is a shit,george harrison played a columbus once!!!!
