Don’t see these everyday. A 1963 Fender Reverb unit. Unfortunately some of the replacement components are too common these days. Can’t wait to hear this and play some Surf Music!

1970 2x12 Lafayette/univox. No schematics for this particular amp anywhere in the internet (or any where else for that matter). I got it lacking reverb, tremolo, and the second channel... every capacitor was replaced (besides the obvious Ftst caps, all the other caps where oil impregnated, meaning they too leak and fail after 50 years). Original tubes tested well, speakers looked to have been re-conned, reverb tank was fried, caps were bad. 7 hours later this thing is as good as new.

This poor MIDI foot controller had a bad power supply end. Goes to show you, pull the cord out of the device properly (pull the end, not the cord itself). A rewiring of the connector end and bingo, it works again.

Liquid and electronics do not mix well when the equipment is powered on. Even worse.... cat urine! This amp was severely damaged by a house cat. Over 50 electrical parts were shorted out. Unable to locate a new preamp board (Carvin went out of business at the end of last year) we decided to turn this 3 speaker acoustic amp into a 300 watt external speaker cab! Sounds great with a newly installed passive crossover mounted under a new plexiglas panel. This unit is completely reversible in the event an electronics board becomes available.

This Suhr guitar sounds and looks amazing after installing new pickups, pick guard and k***s. Notice the dummy coil around the pickup cavities. These single coils do not hum! The reversed wound middle pickup was replaced with an additional neck pickup.

A cracked resistor caused this amp to draw excessive voltage to an op-amp. $10 in parts and an hour later and this Randall was up and running like new.

Sometimes an inexpensive component can fail leading to other components to stop working. This solid state 1985 Randall had 2 cracked resistors causing excessive heat and an eventual failure. The dual OP-Amp that was fed threw these resistors also failed causing one of the two amplifier channels to n...

Met amp guy Daniel today (Amp Revamp)… great guy and many possibilities to help each other. Like his page, spread the word and hit him up if you have amp needs.
Dennis called looking for help on getting his amp going before an out of town gig this weekend. New tubes and blowing fuses… sent him to Daniel (Amp Revamp) who gave him good DIY advice. We had a rectifier tube and got it installed. A few bumps along the way but one happy player!
