Hard to beat a blackface Princeton Reverb baby icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

It was used as the base for the original Mesa Boogie amps before they had been "Boogied".

of all the amps that have been acquired or traded, that one will be with the family forever.

I'll take some photos of the insides in a few weeks and poast them here.

That black face Princeton was my first real amp. The very first one being an original Pignose. They were cute little buggers and actually sounded pretty good. I must have had one of the first 100 or so ever produced. The company sent me all kinds of stickers and a t Shirt for buying one.

I was in college, out of state, so I could fly home with an electric guitar and mini amp along with clothing at the end of the year.

PSG, do you know what the best way to date a Harmony guitar is? Trying to figure out what year the U-75 guitar we have is. Serial #4346, but I'm getting some weird info from google searches. It also has a stamp of A-04900.

Don't get me wrong. I still own 6 tube amps.

I said it sounded just as good recorded. How they feel in a live room is a whole different story.

tube amps are weird. I'm 8' away, amp on, guitar in hand, and i touch the computer that is on my desk and the amp gives me a giant buzz. Remove hand, buzz gone.

It's not the amp per se... but how the amp reacts to interference and differences in electricity from place to place. You can plug in the same exact rig in a different home or club and it will react differently. True bypass pedals and quality, shielded cables will help. A power conditioner will help even more and not touching the computer will probably help the most. nod[1].gif

i've always had variability with electricity from place to place, and that's just a given, but never where i touch one thing separate and the amp reacts. I was doing direct in, no pedal, so that probably added to it all. The JTM buzzed, the DSL did not.

hmmm... I'm no electricity expert by any means (my uncle is however so maybe I'll ask him) but if you never experienced that before it could just be something with the computer. I generally try not to touch any other electrical devices while plugged in, but for sure I've experienced my share of electrical boogie men. It can be a fickle friend!
post #2262 of 4966
fixed a type-o, the DSL did not react.



the JTM is new to the environment so i couldn't really say anything about "never experienced it before". the guitar was in my lap but i wasn't touching it beyond having it in my lap. soon as i touched the side of my laptop, that's when the amp buzzed. weird. I don't mind or anything, it's just interesting to me.



I've noticed that the JTM is a very touchy amp.
post #2263 of 4966
It's something inherent to the design of the JTM. There's something somewhere in the amp that is shielded (or unshielded) in such a way that it creates that particular buzz in that situation.

Had a good lesson last night. Instructor told me I was a "natural bender." I told him I've been called worse things.

Don't know if you smoke cigars, but you do seem to run on alcohol smile.gif
