Default Kalamazoo KEA

Hi folks,
I hope I am not grasping at straws here. I have a Kalamazoo KEA amp that is being worked on. The guy doing it is very good, but even he is troubled by a lack of information on this little 5 w field coil amp. He'd really like a parts list, but will take anything. Any help in any way I would appreciate greatly.

Rick

It is in the Gibson Master Service Book, if you can find that. If you just Google Gibson KEA you will find it.

For example:
Gibson KEA


Really, what parts does your guy need to know about?

I am not sure at his point. I think I will point him to this forum.

I have that schematic. In fact, it's the only thing about the amp I have been able to find. When the amp worked, it had the most musical sound I have ever heard. It would make a great recording amp.

Oh. Well if you have the schematic, you pretty much have all that was ever published. There was never a parts list other than what is on that. They never specified any esoteric parts, nor were they brand snobs.

Good tubes in it, and make sure any leaky caps are replaced, there is little else to go wrong.
