Hi,

... About time I write something here!!!

12 hours round trip last week to collect my second Adamas, a 1995 1881.

Was quite dirty, looked like unplayed for years.

All fine and looks dead gorgeous next to my Mill CB...





It is fitted with this equalizer:



Put new battery in it, amps seems to work, but only other thing happening is not very bright "OK" LED flashing continuously.

Before I dive in there, is there anything obvious to check first?

Thanks in advance for any pointers...

Patrick

Okay... I had to dig-out an Adamas to find-out if this is "Normal".
Yes. When I turn-on the Tuna the green light flashes. That is what the Optima preamp does.
But when I pluck a string, the light with a corresponding Note lights-up.
Have you plugged it in?

Plug it in, see if you get any sound.
If not, open the back and be sure that the Saddle Pickup is plugged-into the Preamp.

Nice guitar.
I have a Black 1881.

Thanks Arthur, Jon,

T'will have to wait a bit since I don't have an amplifier at home...

See you, Patrick

Wonderful guitar. How does it sound acoustically? I was surprised how surprisingly loud and bright my ssb Adamas 12string turned out to be.
I once had a wood-topped Adamas, too, but FOOL THAT I AM I sold it....

Hi Michel.

I strung both Adamas with the same strings and played a few chords with the same pick...

1881 with the small bowl is deffo a touch brighter, but the Mill CB sound fuller...

Church of Sound...
