    Maybe.
    Ten years ago I bought A used, American Made, Microbass amp for small gigs and practice.
    Not bad. Got what I paid for and, more. I added a 1/4" speaker output jack for different cabinets and, all has been well with the world.

    Until

    I accidentally pulled a Stoopid. I mistakenly plugged the output of a larger amp in to the output jack of my Microbass while it was turned off.
    Totally my fault.

    The Micro won't even power-up.
    However, everything inside looks fine, the speaker, cab, Chasis, etc are in excellent shape.

    I would really like to rebuild it. I thought about buying another amp but, after over a year, I can't find anything that does what I want without spending a lot of money. And, I still wouldn't have what I had: Simple, Solid, Dependable.

    My guess is that the Transformer (and a few more things) are Toast.

    Does anybody know of any Resources for Parts and Schemetics to re-build one of these?

    Thanks in advance

    Can’t help, but my very first amp was a Micro Bass.

    Are you not able to find another microbass amp? Seems like they wouldn't cost much and you'd have extra parts in case you needed them.
