[Harp-L] copper

I just spent an hour A/B'ing in my Avenger my copper can versus a ANOS  
Tungsol GZ34 and found that with my unique speaker combination and circuit, the 
 copper can gave the amp more life, tons of bottom end and richness the 
tube  rectifier did not. When you really want to have the frequencies flood the 
 audience you need that extra push which the copper can gives the amp, 
keeping  the bottom end huge. So for MY particular amplifier this works 
perfectly. Any  Avenger or Cruncher owners with copper can rectifiers that want to 
comment  please be my guest. I did the testing and those were my findings on 
my amp. I  would never make a statement even after my testing that everyone 
should use a  copper can. My circuit is unique and it loves to drive the 
amp, while the 4  unique speakers; the 12, 10, huge ceramic 8 and large alnico 
8 need the extra  push so it works for me.. No one complains about the price 
once receiving the  amp and seeing what attention to quality and detail 
goes into it on top of the  great sound from one end to the other. I have 3 
speakers which cost $215 versus  $50 for a single 12, and also have an 
excellent company that has the staff to  build each chassis one at a time, so that 
is extra. If Bruce has the time to sit  there and solder amps that is his 
choice. I use my time to run the entire  business, am available 7 days a week 
for customer service,  and develop new  and groundbreaking amplifiers which I 
have for close to 20 years. I can put this  to rest. I am speaking on my 
amp only. Weber's claim of these cans being so  durable they will last a 
lifetime got me interested in them, and even before  just now I had done my 
testing and knew what I heard was positive. This  conversation which resulted in 
my doing the testing which should be done was a  positive one for me, 
allowing me to focus on the new amp. The reviews will speak  for themselves as 
well as Cruncher owners who will want to retrofit their  Cruncher into a Super 
Cruncher. The other positive thing about my amps is they  sound great even 
when you turn down the volume, allowing the sound man to crank  it in the 
house so that you are not overbearing on stage with respect to the  other 
players. While working in the beginning stages of the Cruncher we set our  amp up 
with cathode/fixed bias however I found that having everything in your  
hands worked better, the speaker setups and having the unique circuit which is  
like the 50's recording sound of Chess led me to develop the Avenger and 
another  completely unique speaker setup. I listen to my customers and I am 
sure from  their experiences of having their bands get louder now that the 
harp amp was  heard loud and clear on stage pushed them to get louder, so the 
Super Cruncher  has a line up of customers who want the extra overall volume 
and the richness of  tone that a 50 watt output transformer will give. A 
unique output transformer  that is proprietary to my Cruncher. I remember when 
we first brought out the  Sonny Jr 1, still a fantastic amp that many will 
never part with, including Kim  Wilson. I had the enthusiasm Rick does, 
however I did not knock other companies  and try and pick them apart. Bruce built 
the amp and he is respected for his  long time work. I am not sure this is 
him directing Rick to stand on his  pedestal shouting, We are the 
Greatest!!! With so many amp companies I still  flourish worldwide, with over 20 pro 
endorsers and all told, a few thousand amp  customers who after 20 years will 
get the same customer service as someone who  just got their amp. Focusing 
one's energy and life on trying to knock me and my  products only assures my 
owners they made the correct choice. End of subject..  Sonny Jr.
