Default Blown fuse / Forte 7

I was checking the bias on one of my 7 mono and my right meter probe slip off the right side of the emitter resistor and blew the right fuse. Pop in a new fuse and it blew again. Obvious I mess something else up, any ideas what other damaged was done. When the fuse blew the first time would it have protected further damage. I presume I will need to take it somewhere for repair? Any input would be appreciated. Sam

This was after my time, so I don't have specific information, but I would say
you probably have lost an output transistor or two.

It's off to the repair station...
