I had one for a year, the 2nd version. Good sounding and I should have kept it. $80 ?????
I sold mine for $325 and I've seen them on CL for $400+

I thought it was a bit flubby in the low end but didn't really take a lot of time trying to add an eq pedal to it to see if I could tighten up. I got it around the same time I picked up the 3.666 mod MP1 and I spent much more time tweaking that.  :homer:

Great deal!

Let me know if you can find any Washburn KC100 guitars over there... I would love to get a third.

It is indeed flubby on the low end, but a TS-Type OD up front takes care of that and the result is 100% Boogie Mk-meets-Recto.
I nevertheless attached the schematics...maybe MJMP can point out if theres potential for some possible mods part-value wise to tame the low end flub and tickle some more gain ;-)
 
There are some Washburn KC100 guitars on the used market here, average going rate on them 90-150$. Problem with getting them to your doorstep is CITES....
ThatÅ› easier with the Ibanez Pro Line series you asked about....those are ebony or maple fretboards. A good used 1996 PL5510 e.g. goes for roughly 300$

Using contact cleaner will fix it for the moment but it will come back after a while. Also be carefull what you spray in there, some "contact cleaners" can eat the inside of the pot. And don't use WD-40!!
I use kontakt WL, 60 ,tuner 600 and 61 depending for what it's for.

Those screws are 4-40 x 1/4 philips head ,countersunk. If the holes are stripped you can use M3 screws since these are only slightly larger then the 4-40, but best to use a M3 tap to put some new thread in there. Works great, done this with a few of my units. Just be carefull that no metal bits fall into the PCB.

They were supposed to be a reissue mullard back in 2000, they still sell them but now they are just rebranded Chinese tubes.

He SC, no I don't recall them, but Harley (where is he these days  :dunno: ) know his stuff  :thumb-up: So what are they really ?  GT don't make tubes (as you know) just test and rebrand.Shame you don't have an ADA preamp with you to test them in  :facepalm: .  My guess is these (from what you say) would be nice in a MP1.

Hey Mike, don't worry, were all here to help  :thumb-up: , and we'll be gentle, that's the kind of place this is  :wave: .This is a new one as I've used a QV for many years (MP1 then MP2) and never come across this issue. And like you prefer the MP1 chorus.  So no, this is not normal and the way you are running it should be fine and better than in the MP1 loop (as you maintain stereo).Now I use my QV with a mixer running it off the Fx sends but that shouldn't make much difference.  Also I only use a bit of stereo delay and some chamber reverb, I don't use the QV chorus or Eq (they are in the QV patch as I use the 4 Fx QV setting but I don't send signal to/from them, adjusted within the QV).  Because you are running through the QV you will need to get the direct/Fx mix levels right within it (I do this with the mixer and run the QV full wet, no direct as I have the direct in the 2 input channels and then mix the Fx back in with 2 Fx return channels).  For you the QV becomes the mixer but, while more fiddly, should work fine.What are all your patch parameter settings (both MP1 and QV), tedious I know but list them all will help.  So just do one MP1 patch and corresponding QV patch that's causing issues.

A common problem it seems.  I have stripped threads in many of my units (well no doubt we all do) and I'm overly meticulous when I take them out and always put the same screw back in the same hole.... :facepalm: .  The ADA screws are imperial (as are US), if you go metric (but very slightly larger) it may fix it.  MJMP posted the screw sizes ages ago and there is a post or 2 about this (do a search of the posts).  Or maybe he'll post here again.

Contact cleaner will help, even just give it a few spins (but clean and spin is better).  That pot doesn't get used much, just have to clean the crap (oxidation/carbon) off the tracks.  If that doesn't fix it, then a new pot is required (IIRC MJMP has the right ones available (http://www.marshalljmpmodshop.net/miscellaneous_parts_and_replacement_tubes.htm).  It's a bit of a job though, IIRC you have to undo all the back panel connectors/jacks etc to disassemble.Easiest is take the lid off, give it a good spray with contact cleaner, clean anything else while you have the lid off (eg front vol pot, Fx loop pot, jacks)...  If you do go down the replacement route, it's probably worth replacing everything (as in jacks and pots) on the back panel as it all needs to be pulled apart anyway to do the HP pot.
