    You might have already checked fliptops. If not these might do the job but I would contact them first to check sizing.

    Yeah the board in the video is from a scope or something which has great quality board. For example, I would not try the twist off method on Casio midi guitar from the 80's. I think the soldering...

    I think the person playing the guitar has the upper hand hearing the difference or rather feeling it. 😋

    Those two black plastic rings appear to isolate the new input jack. How did you install them?

    As far as this internet lore of 70% of max idle dissipation, I don't follow along. Most traditional tube amps that I bias are somewhere between 40-60% max idle dissipation. I am all about tube...

    What's on schematics doesn't always match up perfectly. Typically it's higher B+ readings since line voltages were lower back when these amps were made. Maybe there were versions of the amp that had...

    Strange that plate voltage readings appear low and increasing the bias will only lower plate voltage even lower. At -31v bias supply I would expect higher bias readings from the tubes that you got...

    Just a small thing to bring up is that the schematic shows 6L6GC as the tubes. What version of 6L6's are in there now. They might be rated at 30 watts and not 25 watts. I might have missed something...

    How do those sprague caps vent if they become leaky? I mean does the electrolyte spew out into the empty space that encapsulates it? Could that be better than all over the circuitry?

    Yup schematic time since flying blind is not very resourceful. When you post the schematic measure resistance from every output transistor leg to ground. Got make sure those aren't shorting to ground.
