Fender 6G6-B Bassman
Fender Blonde 6G6-B Bassman build for a client. Chassis (zachmdhunter - eBay), faceplate (zachmdhunter - eBay), power transformer (Classic Tone 40-18005), output transformer (Classic Tone 40-18009), and choke (Classic Tone 40-18003) will be sourced outside of AES. This will be a "chassis only" build. Had to substitute 500V filter caps for the 600V's called for in the schemo as the 600s do not fit in the doghouse.

Alignment Attenuator Box
I made an audio attenuator box which is used during the I.F. alignment of antique AM tube radios called All American 5 and All American 6s So as to not have to listen the the audio alignment tone typically 1000hz during the alignment procedure you connect the output audio stage of the radio to my box, chose the appropriate attenuation matching resistor then connect your analog VOM or VTVM to the terminals and proceed with tweaking the I.F. transformers for maximum readings. Attached is a picture of the box using mostly materials obtained from AES.

Black Face" Barn Find"
Well, it wasn't really a barn but it damn sure was a '64 Champ with a console stereo speaker, a smoked RCA 12ax7, a cheap power chord with the "clip-on" plug, rusted chrome straps, handle brackets, etc...and, covered in dirt/mud, bug/rodent feces. Took her home, sprayed it down with the hose (not really), changed the cord, bought a Warehouse G8C. Now, for hardware and caps. Hopefully, the pots, jack, probably need a light bulb (LED), will pass muster. Wish me luck

75 Meter A M Ham Transmitter
I am building from scratch a 250 watt AM transmitter for use on 3,880 and 3,885 KHz. I depend on Antique Electronics to have the caps, resistors, and other misc. pieces to make this happen. Hammond chassis and transformers take the worry out of getting the supplies together. Their are a few things that can only be found on the used market, but thank goodness for Tubesandmore!

3 Position Tele Electronics Upgrade
Here's everything you need to upgrade the electronics in your Tele. The pots will fit the American Tele plates. If you need the plate you can find it here: https://www.tubesandmore.com/products/control-plate-fender-vintage-telecaster-chrome The one in the photo was finished up with some heat shrink for a pro look. If you want to add the heat shrink but don't already have some it's available here: https://www.tubesandmore.com/products/heat-shrink-assorted-diameters-6-long-23-pieces

Treble Bleed
This is a really simple mod that can be added to most guitars. The circuit is used to brighten up guitars that darken the tone as the volume is rolled off giving more clarity to the signal during the full sweep of the pot. It's easy to install and can be further tweaked by playing with the resistor and capacitor values. A carbon comp resistor was chosen for a classic look but any type will work.

RCA 45-EY-2 Capacitors
Capacitors required for RCA 45-EY-2 Victrola amplifier. May substitute C-ER47-80-160 "Firecracker" for the two electrolytic capacitors for a more "authentic" look. Also, the 82pf Silver Mica capacitor probably doesn't need to be replaced.
