Buzz Be Gone

I’m feeling much better. My amp has returned.

The hornets that lived in it are gone, and now I can play the warm stuff again without wondering when I’m going to get stung. It was returned to me at considerable expense in a grocery store parking lot for cash (no questions asked), and now has a couple of new tubes, four new capacitors, and a lovely new input jack that was causing most of the problems. As soon as I brought it into the basement, I started playing. Then started recording. Here are three bits from the evening’s warm and fuzzy tone.*

Buzz be gone, indeed…


* I was so caught up with the happiness of a warm Fender that I didn’t even notice I’d had the Master switch all the way up with the Volume all the way down until I turned the amp off. Hooray for margins of error.
