Hi stratdeluxer - sorry for the delay - I have retained the stock pups, I think they are prety good the way they are. I changed out the pups on my Wasburn HB35S for some 57's - big improvement. Don't see much need to change the Love Rock pups, I like them the way they are. What do you think about the tubes in the 65 TRRI?

Hi All,

I run my Tokai MM 2001 (s) and Korean goldtop with "tigsby" and P-90s through a Mesa Boogie .50 Calibre +.

I can get just about anything out of that combination.

No pedals, just a cable.

Cheers!,
Rob

Vaporboy....regarding the tubes in the TRRI.Are you talking about the preamp tubes or the 6L6's? I believe the 6L6's to be either Sovtek or EH both of which are Russian made with the EH being matched to stricter requirement..Or.....Fender may still be using Groove Tubes stamped with Fender labels.Early Twin reissues I saw actually had tubes marked Groove Tubes as did my CT's preamp tubes...Most of every tube we are buying today come for the most part from Russia or Checz....Tubes in recent years have improved quite a bit at least in reliability..Groove Tubes is making the exact G.E. tubes from days gone by in the 6L6,these tubes are made in the old factory and use the same components and methods of making the tubes the way they used to be made...They aren't cheap but it might be well worth the tone factor,strength,and reliabilty? Go to the Groove Tubes site and check em out.
I still don't have my Tokai Love Rock yet,but should be real soon,hopefully tomorrow! I'll surely post reviews about it on the site.Thanks for your pickup info....Look for my article that I'll soon be posting regarding replacement of stratocaster pickups and some cool mods and secrets...

My amp collection is sadly lacking at present I'm afraid. All I have is a Pignose (no, the amp!) which I have to say is great as far as it goes, a Shultz Rockman into headphones and a homebuilt Matchless (got the circuit off the net) which needs more work as it distorts all the time!
I really like the idea of a small high quality valve amp so if my dodgy Matchless clone does'nt improve soon I may have to buy something as my guitars at least deserve it even if I don't!

Hey JRude, what cab are you running your TSL through?

I was thinking about a 1960AV myself, but I don't have anywhere to store the damn thing!

Skybone...I have an A/V Marshall 4x12 slant cab that I bought new with all Vintage 30's.....Find room for it.It's a phenomenal sounding cabinet..I'm running an old metal faced 50 watt Marshall head through mine,and anything else I can put through it... ;o) My little 15 watt fender Pro Juinor sounds incredible through this cabinet also...I'd like to try my Cyber Twin through it one of these days also.

Skybone: I'm running my DSL100 through 1960B cab. I think the cab is very good altough not nice to carry around...

The best sound that I get is like this:
Tokai LC-65 -> Dunlop Crybaby Wah -> POD2.0 (mono output)-> to Effect Return of JCM2000DSL100 (Pod takes over marshall preamp, still you get tube power amp from marshall), -> 1960B cab.

Rock on.

Mmmm - I use a Line6 Flextone II. You can all eat your shorts - I know what a Soldano 300w head sounds like through a 1x8" speaker, so there.

The AC 30 setting still does it for me though.

Whoever posted the earlier message re: SD 59s v Seth Lover pickups should know that the 59s are NOT potted - they just have nice wooden spacers which seem to do the PAF thing. I've tried a few combinations of pickups with my Tokai Love Rock and the 59s are the best. If you don't agree, you need an Ibanez!
