depends on how you have fastened and secured nut, I think.
The crimp contact itself is extremely reliable.
Of course you need the right crimping tool and some practice.

remove the fuse from the Neutral.
Only Fuse the Live.

I think in Turkey they have the same outlets like here in Germany, which you can turn by 180° and will still fit. So you never know, which one is really the live wire.

Nevertheless the use of only one fuse is okay. You must however be aware that mains voltage can still be present, even if the fuse is blown. Either that or use a two-pole circuit-breaker, which has more disadvantages than advantages in an amplifier.

Oh!
This cross border advice is so difficult to keep universal.

Yes, in Germany you never know!
The point is to make the amplifier safe, regardless on which wire the live sits.
Then you can have only one fuse and let the PE and distribution panel CB deal with a catastrophic failure that escapes the equipment fuse.
