    Happiness is a warm amp.

    He (or she) looks like a discerning critter!

    It's definitely a cat thing to do that. When my pups were young they would jump up on a small amp too!

    One of those muchxs amps is something I’ve always wanted to add to my meager stable...

    The amp is gone, but there's a new sheriff in town.

    So far, he's not been using the grill cloth for sharpening claws. Dust covers are useful.

    I had to quit using carpet to cover cabinets & racks due to cat hair. One club owner saw my stuff & freaked out due to a severe cat allergy, about 30 years ago.

    Not the recommended method of discharging filter caps, although it does work :lol:

    This actually happened to me yesterday, I took out the chassis for my 67 Bandmaster to inspect due to some noise and I just barely sat it down when my 11 month old cat jumped up and stepped into the amp. She didn't get zapped I grabbed her and puled her off and she reached to hang onto something and her claw snagged the heater wires.

    Yeah, a cat can get kilted daid crawling around in a chassis that hasn't been discharged.

    I haven't noticed any cat hair (or maybe there was and it's been vacuumed), but they can rip apart that 80s carpet covering and it looks swollen in some parts, in other parts threads from fabric are coming out, or the covering may come off the cab altogether.


    Never had a cat jump into a chassis, but I noticed on the schematics that a lot of my amps have a resistor or two in parallel with the filter caps.
