Sad to see. Glad everyone is okay.
Very glad it happened when it did. Later and we would've been asleep, or worse I would've left for work at 6:30 and my daughter would've been sleeping. She uses earplugs when she stays with me. Says I snore?
Earlier and Jazzy Cat wouldn't have made it. Hate to admit it but I kind of enjoy the conversations with that cat. She's living at my sister's place now, probably for good, but I can stop in and talk to her whenever.
Kinda surprised my daughter is going back to L.A Tuesday.
You'd think she's had enough of this fire crap.
Actually had the Super Reverb chassis unscrewed, so I pulled it out of the cab, couple of shots. Grabbed the Princeton and Deluxe Reverbs as well as a 73 SFSR chassis and a 65 Bandmaster chassis from the old house. Pretty sure all that's salvageable is the chassis. Realistically that's not worth doing but at some point I'll give it a shot, for mostly sentimental reasons. Probably do the Princeton Reverb build first, we'll see.
Been away from the board for a few days and just seeing this. So sorry about this, Bobby.
Bobby when did this happen? what was the cause?
this reinforces my belief this is all just stuff, Damn Dude I hope no one or pets were hurt in any way , I am sincerly glad you are here to share with us ,
this is so sad to see from any perspective , is there any thing we can do here to help?
My greatest fear! Glad you're safe, that's all that really matters
Damm, so sorry...that was one hell of a bbq.
I'd just let it go Bobby ... look forward .
Looking forward to building some amps!
Been getting kinda lazy on that regard the last few years.
Wow looks some of the tubes even melted in the Super chassis, that must have been some kind of hot fire!
So sorry for your loss, but you have your lives, stuff can be replaced.
I had a early SF Pro Reverb that survived a house fire, but it just had a little smoke damage, it was a great sounding amp with some mojo.
It was Sunday night about 9pm.
Nope nobody hurt, no cats hurt, my daughter brought a kitten home that day to bring back to L.A.
Help wise just the good advice I get here for amps and other things will do.
I was going to build a house anyway. Been kinda hung up on keeping the original little house built on the property in 1933. Trouble was it was in the best spot on the place for a house, that spot is available now. My brother is shipping me a Tele and I've got the amps I pulled outta the house before they got damaged.
well Bobby best of wishes for you and your family!, nothing else matters as long as everyone is OK the rest can be rebuilt , very sorry this happened , if there is anything i can do PM me
Doesn't look like they got warped from the heat, which surprises me since the tubes melted. I know you've probably got a lot going on, but may want to get those stripped and bead blasted and primered to avoid too much rust damage.
Glad your making the best of things
sad to see. much respect if you can bring those back to life
Man o man, that is really hard to see! I'm glad you and your family are OK Bobby. So sorry!
Watched a few videos on home brew electroplating, something I've always found interesting but never went further with. Might be fun to try on these when I get going again. These will definitely need something to stop them from rusting now. I can't imagine the nickel plate on the 64 or whatever they put on the later BF chassis survived the heat.
sorry to see this bobby .glad you seem to have it all under control.better days are coming!
Oh that hurts. Gruesome.
Sorry you & your family had to go thru this crap but honestly, if I had experienced that loss of property, I would claim it on my home owners insurance & be glad I am still alive to file the claim.
Some things, like life, are just more important than 'stuff.'
