Fw: [Harp-L] Original 64 Fender Deluxe blackface amp questions

Play with it.

Figure out what it will do.  And what it won't do.

Make it say what you want it to say.  Treat your amp like a friend of yours.

All my amps talk to me different.

Believe in Magic!

Subject: [Harp-L] Original 64 Fender Deluxe blackface amp questions

> I have an original 1964 Fender Deluxe blackface amp that I want to use for
gigging. . I'm going to do the usual stuff such as replacing the 2 prong
plug with a grounded one, recap if necessary, etc.
> Anyone have recommendations for:
> 1.  a replacement 12" speaker (ceramic, alnico, brands, vintage, new,
> 2. harp set-ups good for this particular amp (tube set-ups, how the amp
behaves with certain mics, control knob & input preferences, etc.)?
> 3. The amp has an external speaker jack. I seem to remember a rule for
external speakers such as using one at half the ohm load for the amp's main
speaker ( I beleive the stock speaker is 8ohm). Does anyone have any info on
this? I don't want to plug in an extension speaker that will cause havoc
with the amp.
> Thanks in advance
