  1. New (old) Garnet - Mini bass G90T

    Amps and Cabs
    Hey guys! Don't really post here, but I know there are some fans of Garnet here, I wanted to tell you about a cool amp that I picked up. It's a Mini bass - G90T. I saw some references to it on this board when I was researching it. I'm super happy with the purchase! It sounds really...
  2. Hi Everyone

    For New Users
    I think I am going to enjoy this site I see lots of great information and help topics I am a newbie and love Garnet amps and Guitars and Johnson Amplification History
  3. Garnet G100B

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    I have here a Garnet G100B tube amp an heretic transform in a transistor amp. Someone can give me a source of remplacement transformer.
  4. NAD - what else; another Garnet

    Amps and Cabs
    I was not ready for this. I've been fixing up an old (original, but in very poor shape; rusted to snot) Sessionman Vocal, hoping to eventually get a hold of a G250FTR - early era guitar version. Well that's been delayed by my Herzog build. I never expected to have this sweet problem as I have...
  5. Celestion or... other?

    Amps and Cabs
    I was told by an amp tech I really respect that I shouldn't even mess around with anything but Celestion. That they are worth the premium and will save money in the long term given that I'll likely be happy with the sound and not want to change them for something else. He said there's a reason...
  6. NAD - Garnet

    Amps and Cabs
    Sold my old Sessionman Vocal head a couple years ago to fund a Sunn 1200s. No regrets but I do miss the Garnet. Today I managed a straight trade: another Sessionman Vocal ( sans any tubes, but I got to test it works before we pulled them; one of the non original 6CA7s was buggered anyway, all...
  7. Garnet Session MASTER

    Amps and Cabs
    I bought a mint Garnet Session Master combo amplifier (2 X 12") in Winnipeg in about 2003 then had Gar Gilles service it and autograph it before he passed away. I under stand this is one of Garnet's last models fashioned after the Session Man but with several improvements. An expert told me this...
  8. So what's the best deal on a bare bones 5F1 Champ kit?

    Amps and Cabs
    Is there even such a thing (bare bones as in, no tubes, no speaker, no cabinet, not even the chassis or turret board; litterally just the bones aka electronic parts)? I also don't need pots and jacks and wire (got all that), but there's not likely to be a kit that doesn't include that stuff...
  9. Garnet Banshee herzog mod help

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    I'm trying to convert a 5 watt Garnet Banshee Bass into something a little more 'herzog'. I figured it would be a pretty good candidate for a 'bass-herzog' as a 5watt bass amp is a little silly, it has the same tube compliment and PT as a herzog, and the layout looks very similar aside from the...
  10. Vintage Traynor and Garnet Amps Thread

    Amps and Cabs
    I just thought I'd start a central thread for discussion of Traynor and Garnet amps. I have owned a YBA-1, a YGM-3 and now a YBA-2A. I have loved them all. I was just watching a couple of auctions on eBay and a 6V6 YBA-2A is already up to $404 USD with 3 days left in the bidding! ANd there...
