    Super glad the issue resolved itself when the pot surfaced. But to address the original issue, had it been the case... It sounds like you already have a relationship with them. So they know that...

    Hopefully that reputation is just with us guitar amp guys. By that I mean that it's the amp manufacturers that choose what capacitor to pay for. If a long standing, reputable company gives you the...

    Absolutely. I think the humor I intended must have been missed. And yes, I've had enough experience with Illinois caps that I avoid them. Maybe they make some really good ones, but those aren't going...

    Wait, what? When you say "primary side" it sounds like your referring to leads from the OT primary.?. Not to mention that there should only be two wires from the OT to the speaker, not three or four....

    It's alright. I don't think they're made there ;)

    Helm is considering the same thing I am. Divide and conquer. Trace the signal path to find the first place in the circuit where the oscillation shows itself. Oh, and the scope settings.

    The amp I built from the old phonograph parts had an OT about that size. It worked great.

    Point taken. And a big reason the wife is willing to buy the $20 toaster :mad: Other countries might not see the average American as not being payed a decent wage, but it's all relative isn't it....

    If this model has the big capacitor on the board near the preamp, did you replace that one too? Or just the caps in the doghouse?

    Not sure why I'm troubling to post. Just insert my "Chinese manufacturing machine", "can't buy the parts to build here for the price of the finished product" and "disposable culture" rants here.

    Helmholtz asked earlier what happens when you unplug the reverb send to the tank. I'm just repeating the request so it doesn't get missed. You could also unplug the reverb drive tube.

    EDIT: Ah......

    You could absolutely endorse the attenuator. The only reason I can conceive of being "not in favor of" an attenuator would be the possibility of user error causing an open load that may damage the...

    Hi Mudd, and welcome. What you propose shouldn't be difficult at all. I'm at lunch right now so I don't have time to look up and link anything similar until after work. I keyed in to say that your...

    Just to add to the what others are saying it's been common practice in guitar amp attenuators (and I see no reason for this to be a different application) to use a resistance a bit higher than the...

    I can sympathize with tendon and arthritis trouble. Not to the degree you describe though. Also a couple of injuries and breaks here. Also some trouble manipulating tools in my day job due to pain...

    I gotta be honest. I'm a big fan of Warmoth products. I haven't used a Warmoth neck in twenty years, but they sure look like the same company to me on their site. They offer multiple neck woods for...

    Well don't actually do repairs. I've had to do diagnose symptoms often enough to be sure though. The well of experience here is profound. Just another day in paradise.

    Actually... I think I called out the flying lead ground and the probability of a fault specifically ;) But to be fair all the pertinent info to track it was in Nicks post first. All's well that ends...

    I hope that's an exaggeration and what you mean mean is that you can no longer play as well as you'd like if you're going to show it to other musicians. Because I empathize with that entirely. But I...

    Yes! This^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    The 6ca4 is an indirectly heated cathode tube. Plus it soaks up one amp of filament current. A good start toward getting the filament current up to load the...

    The filament current for most preamp tubes, including the ones in the original amp, is about the same regardless of whether they're one triode or two. About 300mA each. Plus the rectifier tube which...
