    Yep. If you can afford Mesa price, you can afford Mesa repair price. I fix 'em. An hour is an hour. And, lucky for the customer, I don't charge by the cuss word! :tape:

    Agreed. Yes it's in the lit, but what about convention? I don't want them wiring my house........ special notes ("green is hot") in the breaker panel and all.

    Do you have a light bulb limiter? If not, now's a good time to build one. I'd first pull the tubes and fire it up on a LBL. It could just be shorted/bad tubes. If you suspect the transformer, unhook...

    Are the two halves of your primary reasonably symmetrical DCR- brown-white and red-white? Do you measure any resistance from primary to secondary?

    Also, try this:

    Are you sure the speakers were in phase in the cabinet you built? If they were out of phase you would be lacking lots of low frequency.

    Apologies. For some reason I was thinking of the Deluxe/Deville type amps.

    Good stuff Nevets! IMO, that doesn't effect the "vintageness" at all. I don't see it as effecting value any more than clipping out a death cap and adding a grounded cable to an amp.

    Start old school and insert something into the return jack to see if it's a preamp or power amp problem.

    What is the intended use? Could you just use a standard 3 pin XLR? Is it possible to change the connector in the microphone?

    At least the one I linked comes apart for repairs. Let me guess- a $30 connector for a $20 mic?

    Very possible. If no set screw, I'd try to carefully remove the rubber, maybe with some heat like Enzo suggested. If you destroy it, you could maybe make something out of heat shrink and left over...

    Is there a set screw on the side of the connector that allows the pin part to come out like the connector in a microphone? Maybe the rubber sleeve part stays put? It's a Shure connector and most all...

    Actually, if you click the pic, then click again so it opens in a new window. Then click once more so it's full size, the resolution is fine.

    A lot of that is in the pdf I linked in post #2 anyway.

    I'm not a person who likes to turn away a repair. Nor do I like being a Negative Nancy. But, it's just the way these amps are- not repair friendly and cheap. Even if you could fix it in 1 hour, add...

    I've had factory OEM replacement tranformers be "wrong". For that reason, when I replace an OT, I don't trim the wires until I verify that it's wired correctly. You'll often find primary wires color...

    What does the terminal strip go to? Maybe the OT? I'm guessing the switches turned speakers on and off in certain rooms like Enzo said.

    If the wires were wrong, the amp would be oscillating because you'd have positive instead of negative feedback. If the amp has been working all this time, it's extremely unlikely it's wired wrong,...
