    Thanks for that info. I will look into these tonight. Really appreciate the concern. I am definitely new to amp tech, but I do AV work...

    Voltage supply, bias type, phase inverter type, and output transformer size among other things affects the total power developed and the...

  3. clintj replied to the thread A good description of Amp bias by Angelfire.

    Ok, so here's the deal. The grid voltage is supplied from the 56k/1k5 junction through the 1M grid leak. Tapping into the grid...

    Just remember, the sound guy has a lot of power at his disposal. I watched one here get thoroughly fed up with the prima donna singer of...

    I still have challenges even with my own band, mainly at the very first thing I do, which is a line check on all inputs. That means I...

    Well, it is a Bassman not an AC30 lol. I agree there's a good chance it's not a tube, but.... Everyone should have a spare set IMO, or...

    No light, but the PT is outputting 6V. Hmmmm. Ok then. First, pull the bulb and check resistance across it or try it in another amp...

    Nature of the beast on rectifier heaters. Your meter shows continuity because that winding is just a few turns of fairly large wire....

  10. clintj replied to the thread Mesa Maverick partially dead.

    Voltage on each half of a winding depends on the build of the amp. Rectifier heaters, for example, usually read 5V and 0 IME, for...

    No. The V1 circuit should play nicely with either a 12AX7 or 12AY7. The original Bassman from the 50s used a 12AY7, actually. Fender...

  14. clintj replied to the thread Mesa Maverick partially dead.

    Need a little clarification. The power switch is what switches the 120V supply to the amp. The standby is downstream of the diodes and...

    Nice find, Wally. Yeah, sounds like the 5V winding is still live so it's not the primary side of the power transformer. You might try...
