The used tubes are, as indicated in the amp: Two 6CA7s (replaceable by EL34s) and three 12AX7As (also called 7025s or ECC83s); plate voltages have always been a question on these units, but I think this may be largely because of confusion with the YBA-1A models that run VERY high plate voltages; most of the YBA-1 models probably come in somewhere /-450 volts (one has reported 425 volts on plate, another one ca.437 volts); this may have gotten higher after 1971, but into the summer of 1971 I'd expect the plate voltages on 6CA7s to be down substantially from the YBA-1A; have the chassis sliding-in ala Fender.This new series follows on the original Pete Townshend Signature Gibson Les Paul Deluxe series of three in 2005.
We explain how good maintenance, mods, tubes, speakers and circuitry components affect your tone and how you may shape it to fit your own musical style and preferences.Here's a faithful re-creation of the legendary and highly collectible Blackface Super Reverb from the 1960s. Designed to sound as close to the original as possible, the ˜65 Reissues are assembled in Corona, California and feature Jensen speakers (One C12K for the Deluxe and two C12Ks for the Twin, four P10Rs for the Super and one C10R for the Princeton), Schumacher transformers, traditional tremolo and tube-driven reverb to create that classic, "Blackface" sound so many players desire.This 45W, all-tube combo with 4 x 10" Jensen speakers, tube reverb, and vibrato has long been considered one of the best amps to "crank up" for unmiked club gigs or on the concert stage. They do have PCBs (Printed Curcuit Boards), as opposed to the original's "hand-wired" circuitry, but the components (capacitors and resistors) are the same values as amps from that period.Original ’70s construction techniques bring to life this ’76 Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop, based on a guitar originally played by Pete Townshend on stage and now displayed in London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. 2016, in Oberhausen, Germany, Pete used a modified Gibson Artist Series Pete Townshend Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop for the first half of Won’t Get Fooled Again only.Pete’s beloved Di Marzio Super Distortion humbucker joins two Mini-Humbuckers for modded tone. The guitar featured three pickups, the added toggle control, extra fretboard inlay on the first fret, and had no Letraset sticker, as well as an additional volume control for an added piezo pickup.
