Sound Pressure Levels on guitar amps

I am looking for an accurate way to measure Sound Pressure levels on guitar and bass amps. Besides buying a $30 gadget I would use for 15 minutes a year, I was wondering if anyone here had better ideas. If you just want to measure, say, db levels at 6 feet from an amp, what would you use? (And somet...

Spray some Deoxit on your pots before committing to an electrician. This has nothing to do with the fact that the instrument is a PBass, its electronics.

Something is wrong with your amp, or, your technician.

Please don't do what kslight suggests - it's a nice amp, and you want to keep that transformer happy : if it wants 4 ohms, give it 4 ohms : your 1 4ohm speaker you have, or two 8s in parallel. Mismatched speakers (4 and 8)would divide the load unevenly, and just be plain wrong.

On the used side, any pickups you can score on ebay from late 70's/early 80's from Matsumoku guitars MIJ (Vantage/Aria/Westone) are fantastic Gibson pickups with major balls and quality alnico V mag's.
My favorite pickup in the world is precisely that - a 70's Aria humbucker.

i would recommend a new speaker that is just as efficient as your existing - speakers vary a great deal in efficiency (loudness) and a mismatch would be troublesome for me.

A cheap fix might be to just change the circuit that came within the switch electronics. i understand a higher value cap results in rolled off treble. An expensive solution would be to put in Lollar pickups. I would only do that if I knew exactly what i wanted and was sure those pickups could get me...

I buy stuff off ebay, but not a guitar or a neck. that is the physical interface you have with a guitar, and i think you absolutely HAVE TO play a guitar before liking it.

But i pieced together a 90 frenandes strat once with upgrades - seymour duncan pickups and a feiten nut.

I have a JMP 50 also - after trying a variety of speakers, I settled for Celestion greenbacks, happy since.
