    I'm as well as anyone under the circumstances. So far I haven't read about any of the membership getting sick or testing positive. Thank you. We're here when you're ready to get back into it.

    +1 on the fetching price for used bench gear. But really... Used scopes, etc. are kind of stupid affordable compared to their original purchase price. How much could they go down? So instead of $150...

    Any members in the area that can house some of this stuff on nevetslab's behalf so it can be reclaimed if/when he works out a better option?

    EDIT: Redundant...

    Can we assume you didn't have a guitar plugged into the amp and that the reverb cable is properly shielded?

    Consider that following any voltage division in the tone stack whatever DC remains is on the following stages grid. Since preamp tubes typically bias under 2V it doesn't take much to throw it off.

    Yep. That's what I find using the stacked books. I can stagger them a little to clear tubes and still have more secure support under the chassis.
