    Bob, I do believe I would mega-high-five you given the opportunity if you could check. Mine is a dead copy of yours. I've seen pics of one that was just a little later and used several parts from different manufacturers, and like I said, the in-between one that was totally different. Yours however is a dead set match


    Just to be clear its the yellow one circled right?

    I'll try to have a look at it later for you. Bob

      Yes sir. Mine only looks slightly different at the moment because it's been replaced by three twisted together resistors that caught in fire and burned the board... Ha.


      I really appreciate it Bob.

        Ok heres what I got. The resistor says

        206-9 1K0
        202- 15%m

        Thats exactly how it appears on the side. I donr know what value that is. I ass-u-me 1K but how many watts? donno...Bob

          Also I'd mount that resistor a bit above the board-not flush. It gets HOT. The one on mine has browned out the board. I was able to lift it a bit since the legs stuck thru the other side about 1/4 inch. Bob

Only it was replaced poorly, and with jumpered resistors. It has since caught on fire and the preamp one no longer works. I would really appreciate it seeing as how you seem to be to only one with any good information on it.
            I had the same situation on my board, the area circle is totally burnt and scorched on the board and now there is a 5W 1Kohm resistor jumping where the trace used to be. After reading some posts it appears that mine was not an isolated incident. My resistor was replace with the ceramic type w/ above specs.

            Has anyone tried to replace those square caps w/ orange drops or mustard caps????

              That cement resistor gets very hot. I raised mine up above the board since it was scorching it. Havent messed with anything else except replacing the main filtering caps and putting in a 470K input grid resistor. Bob

                Is that a ceramic resistor that is circled?
                Is the 470K resister the mod Crazy4FX talked about? Do you have a pic of your board where you did that mod? Location on board
                I'm also trying to figure out if anyone changed the tone caps w/ good results on these amps.
                I'm gonna have to do the filter caps on mine soon, which did you go with?
                I know JJ makes them, there are ones made in germany and there is a guy in Vegas that sells them that are the same size as the original LCR but different brand.

                  That is a cement resistor circled. The input grid resistor I changed is on the input jack. It is not the mod Crazy4FX is talking about. I just got a bit of high end roll off doing so in an easy way. I went with the German F+T caps. They come in the correct diameter but are shorter. With a desoldering gun and a bit of patience I was able to swap over the resistors on them nicely. Bob

                    Any of you guys have a source for the push-pull boost pots in these? I need a replacement Bass pot for my Laney Pro Tube AOR Series 3012

                    Thanks

                      See the link below for the word document and schematics.

                      Yes there are probably other tweaks to V1B and V2A I really just wanted to get it up and running. I will probably go back in the future and do some more tweaks.

                      I am using 6550’s in the power section and yes believe what you have read, LOUD, LOUD, LOUD. The head is plugged into a cabinet loaded with 4 of the G12K-100 Celestion’s, a beast of a speaker with the heaviest magnet currently in use.

                      Hey there! I'd love to check out these mods! Might they be available on a different (non-geosirtes) site now?

                        Hopefully this helps others who own one of the Laney amps in question!
