  1. I modded a V jr once. Put a 125 DSE on it, with resisters... Not sure what I did wrong, but it had a nasty hum (apparently a grounding problem?) But I have just picked up a '67 Fender Coronado II, so I need an amp again, lol. The Blues Junior looks like a pretty sweet deal. It seems like i could get lucky and get one around 350$. The advantage would be that has EQ, Gain and Master volume knobs, reverb, and standby already built in.
  2. I guess they deleted everything with the new forum. I had a thread up asking for help with my Valve Jr. All I have done is replaced the Output Transformer with a Hammond 125DSE, and maybe 6 resistors or so. Its had a wicked hum ever since I did it, even though it does have more punch. The hum goes away when i turn the tone pot all the way off on my guitar. I've tried two different guitars and plugged the amp into different houses. The circuit board is a new black one. When i touch anything metal on the guitar, or the amp (like mounting screws on top), the hum changes. I've tried re soldering all the resisters, moving wires around, but nothing changes. Maybe its due to the Volume Pot? I cant remember if it was the volume or input jack, but the first time i pulled the board, It bent the little mini-circuit board up, just bent it back down and it appeared intact. Thats the only thing i can think of. If I cant fix this on my own, I'd be willing to mail it to someone to mod it for me. But thats a last resort
