    If the fuse hadn't been bypassed, it might have been a single transistor, but I would suggest that you meter test all of the transistors on the board before you try powering up again. The drivers...

    Be sure that the output speaker wires are dressed away from the circuit board. I think that one has stamped loops in the rear panel to tie the wires to.

    There are also a bunch of small green mylar...

    In your photo, I can't tell where the black ground wire from the circuit board goes. It seems to head behind the volume pot.

    It should be connected to the CCW terminal of the volume pot which is...

    Check to see if the LFO is running. Those chips that are listed as 80848 are LM3080 transconduction amps. There is a control voltage applied to pin 5, so check that pin to see if there is a...

    Kustom did have some footswitches with backlit FX names that were illuminated with #335 lamps. If it had this style of switch, the plug was usually a multi-pin xlr not just a tip-ring jack.

    I just repaired a K250-4, it had a lot of hiss. Bad opamp caused it. Luckily it was a 4558 so easily replaceable.

    These will normally have a certain amount of hiss, but the older technology opamps...

    If there are silpads on the originals, I will inspect and reuse when possible. When the insulators must be replaced, I just use mica and Wakefield silicon grease.

    Earlier on you posted that the input transistors were 2SB54's. Can you use one of those for the driver position and replace the input with another less critical one?

    Have to agree with nickb above. If the basic first recording is weak there will be very little regenerated echoes.

    On the original transformers, there is no center tap on the HV secondary. They use a full wave bridge to get the final dc voltage.

    Normally there are 4 diodes in the high voltage power supply...

    As a follow up, the UTC "ouncer" model O-1 would seem to fit the bill.

    There are a number of 1970's UTC catalogs scanned and online out there. Who knew?

    Interesting, I have not seen that style of trem before. Instead of varying output bias or shunting audio signal to ground, they are basically shunting the two input grids of the power tubes together....

    Looking at the photo of the original switch/transformer assembly, that looks like a UTC matching transformer. United Transformer Corp, New York.

    Thanks for posting the schematic.

    That's quite an amp, dc preamp filaments, 6V6 drive to the reverb tank.

    Just as a point of reference, I just fixed an original 1969 Fender Telecaster. The pots were both 1 Meg Audio and the volume pot had a 0.001 bleeder cap.

    I assume that you mean if you shake the tank the springs you can hear them through through the speakers? The reverb return circuit is done with opamps, the drive circuit is part of the 15 vdc...

    This is a single sided power supply for the opamps, so there should be 30 vdc on pin 8 and ground 0 volts on pin 4. So the reading you get at IC1 are correct, with about 15 volts bias on all of the...

    If there is hiss coming from the speaker, you can probably rule out an output transformer or power tube problem. Have you checked the tubes?

    Visually check all of the solder joints on the tube...

    The small second transformer is an isolation transformer that separates the ac line ground from the input audio ground. So in theory the input ground is already ac isolated.

    Build yourself a light bulb limiter and use it during start up tests. It might save you a bunch of new parts if you don't catch all of the shorted ones.

    It might help us all to know what amp you are talking about and maybe a link to an owner's manual.

    Welcome to the place.

    While I don't care one way or the other, you might want to start a new thread for your amp so we don't start to get things confused with the earlier one.

    When the filter cap cans were replaced was the original grounding scheme followed? Ampegs will hum from ground loops if the cans are not grounded correctly.
