Default Hi

Hi I'm George.
I'm a guitar tech.
when the old guy that did amps retired a year a go
I said I would help out on the small things As I maintain/mod my many valve amps. I've been doing there pedal repairs for years.
Most amp I repairs are just soldering replacing jack socket,cleaning pot checking voltages, just normal. I have had to do some big repairs on blown burnt up stuff. Valve amps with beer spilled in them and the board carbonised a rewire around the burn stuff.
In my workshop I have the normal test equipment.
Variac
DMMs
Signal tracer.
Inline bulb.
Nothing fancy. I wouldn't know what to do with it.
I hope to learn a lot and hopefully get some help on the tough stuff.
Thx

Thank you
Im not so good with the duel rail power side of amps. PA heads drive me crazy.
But I'm learning whither i like it or not. They arent even looking for a proper tech.
Looking forward to learning more.
240v will wake you up in the moring. Lol
