Re: Hughes & Kettner TriAmp faillure

hi b.

i had the same problem, the amp was "dead"
i send i to a h&k distrubtor and the told me, that i used the wrong "socket" to install dem cable from the midi module, it cost me € 250.- to repair it :-((

Re: Hughes & Kettner TriAmp faillure

: Hi,

: Can anybody help me with the following issue:

: Recently I've installed the MSM-1 MIDI module in my TriAmp's head, but now the LEDS on my frontpanel don't work anymore and I lost my sound completely! The only thing that a little functions, is the mastervolume. I have to crank it completely and then I will get a 'digitally' sound. Please can you help me? Thanks.
: Ben van Geest

yes, you have installed msm-1 cable wrongly thus burn two fuses inside the head, you have to install the cable which goes to the amp from the msm-1 so that the notches in the socket and pins are on same side, you have put it in following the manual picture which refers the arrow on the pins to go this wa<y or that way but you must forget the arrow and the picture cause they work on older kettner models that way but on triamp the pins has to be opposite so the notches will meet. the blown fuses are on inside uinder big circuit board on a smaller circuit board touching the chassis back. hard to chance so take it to someone pro.repairer.

i wanna know how much a squier affinity fat strat and a squier standard double fat strat is

could a guitar expert help me find out how much these guitars r above?

Re: i wanna know how much a squier affinity fat strat and a squier standard double fat strat is

Why would you want to buy the worst guitar on the market? If money is the issue, get a used guitar of some quality.

Ref new Fat Squire Fat Strat:Paid $165 for mine 2 months ago form Semonile Misic in Clearwater Fl. It was mafe in China and has a solid maple neck and an exce;;ant black poly finish. If no one has checked out the new Squire Fat Strat they will be in for a surprise. My fit and finish is excellent and plays great. I have recently seen then on the web at GuitarStop.com for approx $200 other on lines also carry them. MusiciansFriend.com did have them for $165. I am not disapointed in my pruchase at all. Those that "dis" the new Strats have not tried one.

I also bought one for 169..Brooke Mays Music. I played about 10-15 strats. So many different necks, I liked this one, they also did a great job of set-up at this paticular store. The other contender was a American/Standard- $799 with case,T-shirt,strap good deal. But, I wanted a guitar I didn't worry about scratching also! In all honesty the American Top line uses Stainless Steel, so hardware is better than SQ Strat with chrome plated. I have 3 strats, they all have different feel so go try out as many as you can.
This China Squire-Fat Strat, 2 singles, one double is nice. Solid Alder body like top of line, thinner body..which is great! I'll probably drop in some Sperzel Tuning pegs I have laying around, and will search for a "clearance on a nice set of pickups someday (no real need just a habit!)...the best thing of all, other than the killer priceis....I can play the SH&*%&%%T out of this thing, anywhere and not worry about scratchs,nicks,parts etc.
Just Love this guitar. $169 and have 'em set it up right.

Best effects boxes for vocals, acoustic guitar

Hello,

I play solo acoustic (6 and twelve string) and sing. Guitars are Ovation A/E nylon, washburn small size 12-string, big LoPrinizi 6 string dreadnought.

What do you think are the best effects boxes for

1) Live vocals (would like to be able to have clean choruses, reverbs, be able to change eq well)

2) Acoustic guitar (would like to be able to chorus and reverb without getting muddy sounds, keep clean guitar sound, any other good acustic fx too)

Opinions?

Fender 65 Super Reverb

I bought this amp recently and have not been satisfied with its presence in band environment. The mids seem to clip when bright switch is on and the sound is not very full. I had been using a DeVille 4-10 which has the fullness and presence, but was frustrated with the controls and little things keep breaking. Anyone know of enhancements to the Super? I am considering JBL speakers.

I bought all new old stock american tubes and it has brought this amp to life. This setup has cost over $400 because I bought extra 12ax7's and 6l6gc's. Gotta have american tubes!

Ensenada

I have an Ensenada accoustic guitar I purchased used in the early 1970's. It is MD69. There is a pic guard decorated with flowers and leaves. Can anyone tell me about my guitar? What is it worth? Thank you, Patti

Re: Ensenada

Afraid I don't have too much to offer. I too have been playing (read learning) on an Ensenada. It's a W G 65, and when I searched for additional information I couldn't find much. From what I can gather they were produced in the early 70's in Japan by a company out of Chicago called Strum 'N Drum. I'll try to let you know if I learn anything new - sorry I can't offer much! Just enjoy the sound!
