As far as I read a T, time delay fuse is the same thing as a slow blow fuse. There are also medium blow fuses. Is this not correct?

Hi Guys,
Just an update, finally gotten time to test out the Schurter fuses. Well it really does makes a difference compared to normal glass fuse. Firstly everything becomes a little larger.

Music, instruments etc carries more weight. What's really nice is on percussion instruments, the shimmer is more real & decays sounds real nice, all good but caveat it sounds slightly slower over glass fuse so strange. Let's see if it will speed up as the fuse burns in.

Cheers

Hi Scott,
My mono amp has 2 fuses on each amp modules. Original glass fuse were rated
7 amps each, the Schurters that Im using are 6.3 amps, kind of makes me wonder if its the lower amp rating meaning thinner wire is causing the slowness.
That was the highest that Mouser carried at my end. What’s your thoughts Scott ?

Oh the immense power of the Placebo Effect.

Wonder if any Human on Earth can tell them appart in a properly made double blind test

Mmm, not sure about that, wouldn't the constriction have the opposite effect?

Not sure myself too Scott but it does sounds very nice.

Yes JM sceptism is always present, the fuse are cheap so I would suggest that you give it a try. Whatever I tweak I always use music that I very familiar with.
No placebo I can assure you so pls try.
