Separate names with a comma.
Fender used those 250V carling switches for years and years and years.
As long as you don't go with one of those mini switches where the contacts...
Nope, probably should have, but didn't think about it at the time.
There is a special tool that gets used on PA gear and hollowbodies where it's very hard to access the back of the pots. It forces lube down into...
To really get the spray in there you've gotta get underneath it, so I'd just take it apart @beninma
If it goes away temporarily but then comes back, just replace the pot.
I also never trust a Piazza schematic. Been burned too many times.
Try using some deoxit on the pot and see if that takes care of it.
Step 1 of amp troubleshooting is always a voltage chart.
There's a reason they switched to tolex :D
That is interesting since Aiken says this about contact noise:
"Contact noise Contact noise is dependent on both average DC current and resistor...
Correct - since the cathodes are no longer in parallel you'd double the resistor value.
I only use them if a knowledgeable customer insists when I'm doing vintage restorations. Other than that, I don't even keep them in stock.
Hmmmmmmm...that's a good question. Maybe there are phasing issues?
@Mike Eskimo - I just did Copper Harbor to Lansing this weekend and I thought the traffic was great. We made good time.
They are probably original to the amp too, if I had to guess.
EVERY amp is based on a previous design. There are only so many ways you can hook up a 12ax7 and make it amplify. Fender pulled their stuff back...
mmmmmmmmmmmmm octals :D
Is the 6v6 redplating under those conditions? Sounds like you found where to look though from the voltage readings.
If you want to learn, I'd recommend books and a kit where all the necessary parts are provided. This doesn't even work to begin with, has been...
Step 1 is always to make a voltage chart.
I would think just the shipping cost would be worth it to Weber. I personally have never used a kit for anything, but I've only heard good things...
Yeah, I'd just offer to take a quick look next time it's out, and then go from there.
Sounds like he's doing it wrong, but he could also have a rough spot on the nut/bridge that's causing breakage.
Even if you did manage to drill the whole, I would likely argue that the drill would leave a rough enough surface, both on the inside of the hole...
ooooh I have one of these! It's a fun thing to have on the shelf, but I didn't pay anywhere near that.
