Given Joe's debunking of the value of NOS capacitors, etc., I thought that the comments from the guy below might amuse some of you (as well as his circuitry being useful too)...

His comments about the premium-priced turret board version of the Tubescreamer are particularly amusing, I thought.

Too funny ! So many things in the guitar universe get "labeled" using terms that mean nothing. Go look at the pickup descriptions on Tom Anderson Guitars , no actually values , just words like warm ,hot , rich and creamy? I want to know how many turns of copper are on the dern thing and what type of magnet is in it! My experiences with a tubescreamer are pretty simple , bought one of the cheap ones in the early 90s,have matched it up against just about every version ever made and it does exactly the same thing.

I'm looking to possibly build my own speaker cab, as well as eyeing aftermarket pickups for my guitar. Both pursuits find themselves mired in vague descriptions and labels made by those who sell them. It's a jungle out there, full of Bumblebee caps and NOS tubes!

Reminds me of an interview Alan Parsons did earlier in the year. https://www.cepro.com/article/beatles_pink_floyd_engineer_alan_parsons_rips_audiophiles/

By the way, if any of you are into home recording and haven't had much professional experience or training, check out his art and science dvd set. It's really a great collection of information. I wish it had been around 20 years ago when I was trying to figure all that stuff out 'on the job'.

I got to interview Parsons a few years ago. My favorite quote: "I learned quite early on the important of audio hygiene." 🙂

insonicbloom's blog (paul in the lab) is indeed hip... and he's opinionated!!

but he's brutally honest, too...
i got trolled on facebook for speaking the truth about some bullshit capacitor purveyor on their trying to sell 50 cent caps for 30 bucks a piece... pretty funny.

electrons really don't care too much what they pass thru. the key things with caps are value and esr pretty much.

i built some klon(e)s a year or so back... some i built with the "mojo" parts some with just cheap everyday ceramic caps... and the prefered one to everyone who tried them were the ones with the cheap ceramic caps! 😉

touch my what?!?!?!?!?!?
