Re: Don Butler's mods for the AC15

Re: Don Butler's mods for the AC15
The answer is simple. Don't change a thing if you have the celestion blue alnico speaker in your AC15RI. I have both an RI 1x12 AC15 and a 1963 1x12 AC15. Turned up, they sound almost the same. Really!! The original has and EF86 preamp. Tons of gain in 1 stage but it suffers from microphonic feedback. The RI has similar gain due multiple stages. I was suprized myself.  
The speaker is the key.  
I have my asbetos suite on so I am ready for the flames.
