Did some videos for Warrior Pope live recording.
This Peavey Artist came in for triage, touring band from Sweden, different electrical regs there so shenanigans inside. Fuse on the bias is a genius plan.
Blown fuse on the board, and this cooked looking cap is prob the issue, but not one I have to hand. Put a new fuse in and wished him luck, apparently it works, will need a proper sorting when they aren’t on tour.
Not sure if linked this before, but I set up a Facebook page for pedal sales. This should be a link to the folder of pedals for sale: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1691321974457138.1073741828.1691292437793425&type=1&l=d5e029728f
Or just look up Tone Wolf Audio on Facebook.
Not my usual faire, but last thing I had open since I thought ‘damn, need to update my blog more’. But took a gut shot as had it apart, just a load of dead pre valves.
Mr. D of the Atomic Tangerine blog dropped this over for a service, various small misbehaving, including non working reverb and some not right sounding gain channel.
Again did that thing where I started taking apart before photoing it. Whipping out all the valves and running them through my exciting new tester explained the not working reverb, a dead half on one of the preamp valves. Power valves were all good, which is relief since those are the expensive bit to sort.
Various PCB in there, everything is mounted on them, not ideal, but they are separate and secure, so not so much flexing in various places. Do need lifting out to get a look at the components. I can see a disconnected wire from an LED (these have been replaced badly at some point) and various incomplete joints on the preamp valve PCB. Need to lift the boards for a look at the state of the caps on there next.
Just traded for this, loads more gain than I need prefer dirty channel on Burman, so its on the block, nothing wrong with it, cleaned the sockets and that is about it. £600
