I was able to solder the coupling caps in the Yaqin alright. It seems like I can't get the heat to transfer, but I keep touching things I don't intend to with the iron too so I'm afraid I may have no choice but to mail it to you for repairs.
I have a friend who is pretty handy with a soldering iron, I'll ask him if he wants to give it a try before completely giving up.
I hate to mail it again, every time it makes a trip through the mail it gets shaken up and we run the risk of another joint weakening, but I really don't know what else to do about it now.
It's nobody's fault, just bad luck, but I'm can't help but feel a little bummed. I own two tube amps and both of them are broken.
It is probably best if you send it to me. I will fix it for free no mater what is wrong just shipping.
If you are going to send it send it on Monday Priority or Waite till I get back from Athens.
It is best if you Waite till I come back I am leaving on Friday and that don't give much time for it
to get here.
