Tqi: Is it morally acceptable to use a Radial capacitor in a 1960 amp design?

synchro: TQI, morality is a huge question and capacitors a deep subject. I say do it and don't tell anyone. Smile

Thanks guys! Being that the Quilter is newer technology I might be the first person to use it this way. It's a great backup amp also.

What it sounds like playing First Wave.

That is a great sound. Really captures that clean but not piercing sound of the first wave.

Los Straits and FODM have ruined me; I like some amp breakup on instrumental guitar. Not to mention The Mermen.

Los Straitjackets use Deluxe Reverbs with no external effects.

Harmonic distortion or overdrive sounds good to me on some songs, but not most, as a change of pace. To my taste creamy distortion sounds better than grind, but grind works occasionally. I find grind tiring. There may be several paths to creamy overdrive, but the ones I know involve reverb and/or delay after the overdrive.

Los Straitjackets and The Mermen use very different tones. The Straitjax use just a little reverb, varying amounts of overdrive, and little else. The Mermen are extremely heavy levels of effects and no twang or guitar string percussion is audible on most of their recordings.

The Mermen also have a range of tones from pretty clean Krill Slipping up to heavy Glorious Lethal and back down to today. I think he has used Lexicon reverbs for a long time.

I have seen Los Straits use Vibroluxes live turned up enough to get some breakup. My friend interviewed Eddie Angel and he said they sometimes use AC30s in the studio. Some of their studio tones do sound like cranked Voxes to me. Danny tended to be cleaner than Eddie.

YMMV
