You can buy those impedance selectors but I would just replace it with a modern switch. The pin-and-socket originals are way too unsafe for my liking


Who sells them? I haven't been able to find any original looking ones.

I just checked and it looks like the larger arrow selectors are much harder to find than the smaller ones with the window. If you're really stuck and want a complete amp I could trade you the voltage selector from my MKIV for a set of modern selectors. I'll check if it matches when I get home.

Awesome. Yeah, it's the arrow selector I'm looking for.

Stoked to report both Sound City heads work fine and they are fucking LOUD. Louder than my V4. Tone was very similar to my Twin Reverb. Chime for days, really bright. Reminded me of when I tried my L120 on guitar, I was scared for my speakers the louder I turned up. I'm thinking of adding a tubescreamer with the gain down just to add a little darkness/mids. Any recommendations on what pedal can help out with darkening up the amp a little but not adding any gain? Gonna try this first before I decide to swap out the speakers I have in there.

Mate is selling a Sound City with Hiwatted preamp. If you enquire about it, he'll tell you all about how he knows the Melvins.

Missing the impedance switch selector. This piece is fucking impossible to find and obv won't work without it. Used the one from the other to make sure it works.
