    Fair 'nuff. You also might have cleaned up the bridge switch by moving it. I've had that happen.

    They ate up your time, which you could have spent fixing someone else's actual problem. Charge bench fee. It's also nice to instruct the equipment owner in how to use his amp properly (which he could...

    Not the first time this sort of thing has happened. I was commiserating a long time ago - @ 25 years - with the owner of a parts outfit who had just received a big box full of transformers from...

    226's a heckuva lot cheaper - helps to buy quantity of course - at CE and Conquest. Buying onesies at Pacific, never a bargain. Neutrik angle plugs - the only ones I've seen are the size of a hammer....

    Those %$#@ RCA plugs - and I refuse to pay big bucks for Sw or NT replacements - they don't fit so well either, so aggravating given the prices... Cheap as possible ol' fashioned solder-on RCA's like...

    Patent. Ampeg would have to pony up some licensing loot. To Fender (oh no, the competition!) or whomever, doesn't matter. I use that as the explanation for the proliferation of vibrato & reverb...

    It's probably a bid to diminish AC line noise which may show up in the amp signal as noise. Like when my neighbor uses their blender, I can hear a faint "whizzzzz" showing up in some of my amps. I...

    I was recently donated a shoe box full of ancient wax & paper caps. Maybe I'll offer 'em one of these days in our Flea Market. Or go for the big bucks on EepBay or Revoib. "Get that vintage sound at...

    My cap meter reads leaky caps as if they have higher than expected values, say 40 to 200% over. If I'm reading an old cap say 40+ y/o I interpret "bonus" capacitance as leakage, not a magic advantage...

    Yes, good choice to replace both multisections. What I do in cases like these, get dual can caps with "close enough" values. The capacitance does not have to be exact, keep that in mind. Lately I've...

    Concur with eschertron - I played bass in a horn band first 2 years of college. Trumpets - like to play the game "how loud and how high can you play" plus no shortage of ego. The shorter guys had a...

    You could 1) cut ground leads long when removing the old caps, and solder your new caps to those leads. B: drill holes, put ground leads to solder tabs bolted to the chassis - you're already planning...

    I find the output jack mounting nuts can't be adequately tightened with that dadblamed cardboard gadget in place, so out they go!

    Kool! You may want to follow up after the deoxit spray, with a shot of non-residue cleaner. Deoxit, good as it is, leaves an oily residue that eventually gums up, can cause corrosion too. All it...

    FX return jack or "power amp in" jack always a suspect.

    Read all about it in our handy sticky. And keep it in mind for ANY similar symptoms, in any amp or mixer, it's often the culprit.

    Just the old Radio Shack cheapie special. All I remember, it had A and C weighting (A for Annoying :) ) and a sort of averaging function. Bands I worked for often exceeded 110 dB. Even with the PA...

    Yes.

    What I often do with B15's is remove the "twistlok" multisection cap, replace it with a 50+50 uF 500V dual cap - lately F&T brand - but I have to install a bracket to hold the 50+50. Then...

    Your assumption is correct, and your solution looks good. I expect your B15's power supply will be happy with that.

    Those Tube Amp Doctor filter caps look very small - but if they work, that's...

    With the short at the lower-voltage end of the power supply string, I'm not surprised the fuse didn't pop. Resistors in the power supply string limited the amount of current expressed into the short....

    The speakers have impedance curves. The manufacturer may publish them, or if you want to go to enough trouble you can measure them yourself. HOWEVER - calculating with all that science is getting a...

    Are you planning to run the 15 and the 8 in parallel? Some amps from "back in the day" did this, or similar. 15's & 8's in Sano amps intended for accordion, some Polytone SS amps marketed to the jazz...

    What trobbins said ^^^.

    With the proliferation of "fuse everything" going on in the last couple decades, it's easy to get corn-fused. Especially if you're a "real smart amp wizzard" dispensing...
