SO means you should film it really  rolleyes.gif

Seriously though, good luck with getting it fixed. I know how horrible it can be not knowing what is wrong.

Film? I'm looking :thumb: for a romantic ending. One where, it is a simple fix and the owner falls in love... all over again.thumbsup.gif

I will pull the bottom plate and take a look at the pot tonight after work. I'm sure it is probably something simple. Still I'm confused I handled the amp like a newborn baby during the move, as I do with my most prized possessions. Maybe its just a weird coincidence and that valab stepped pot i asked to have put in was going bad anyway.

Nothing surprises me. I've had new units ship DOA right after my quality inspection. Or go bad once in the consumer's hands. Parts parts parts... rolleyes.gif

The only person that has a amp that can do this right now with a switch

is rosgr63.

I used to make adapters to do 12 volt and 25 volt thbes.

 

I have used some nice Tung Sol 12SN7 round plates, RCA 12SN7 gray glass, and Hytron 12SN7.

They all sounded fine.

Glenn, I really can't even get in there to see anything.  Only the front and back cover plates come off, there is no removable bottom plate, and the front plate actively resists being pulled away from the enclosure starting with as little as 1/4" of movement.  I feel like I'll break a solder if I pull on it any harder.

 

Am I retarded and missing something?  There doesn't seem to be any way to get into it from the bottom, but I can't imagine working on the inside of the amp from just the ends either.

 

edit:  Oh, I get it now.  The bottom and top are a clam shell divided into two halves.  I'll see what I can get into here in a minute......

Great! I was just fixin' to send a pix of my bottom cover dropped...

post #3414 of 10867




Hopefully these will suffice. My phone won't focus if I take the picture any closer.

My untrained eyes do not see anything wrong so far.

Wow, I would literally be tearing my hair out if I had to wire all that in such a cramped space, nevermind the fact that I'm absolutely not capable of doing work of this level anyway.  My respect for what Glenn does just continues to grow and grow......

 

It's too late to hear anything back tonight of course, I guess we will see what tomorrow has in store for advice.

Such intricate detailed work could prove very relaxing... placing one in a zone. I too, have appreciation for his work. Think about it, he works full-time, makes time for his mate, then makes time for us and eek.gifSTILL gets in the studio and gets it done!

That is the coolest looking box in the history of boxes.  Does the tube have GE, Sylvania or RCA markings on it SO?
