Hi John, listening to the amp right now and loving it but there are a couple of smallish issues one of which is the on/off switch sticking. I have to pull it out towards me to operate it but it has been behaving itself today. Don't suppose you know the part number or would a squirt of contact cleaner help?

BTW, do you know if the lamps in the VU meters, which look like fuses, are easily sourced and replaced?

PS, I'll get the photos up tomorrow sometime, hopefully.

Hi John, just a thought but I need VU meters and a switch and you need transistors and a PLPS, are you up for sharing the cost of broken amp if we can find one?

Regards,

Tony

Afraid I haven't got any leads on the lamps, but you're idea to purchase a donar amp to share needed parts is a good 'un

As for the switch, I'd just get some switch cleaner from:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Brand-Servis...1507453&sr=8-1

I believe the old stuff wasn't suitable if it came into contact with plastic, but this one is safe. You'd have to take the lid off and get the nozzle right into the switch. If the switch is dodgy, another reason to get a donor amp I guess.

John.
