    Orange Rocker 30 trouble

    Got a rocker 30 head. Turned it on last night and had ablue flash from the back wich resulted in a power tube being fried and a fuse. Replace tubes/fuse's,now everything comes on but no sound from the amp. I took the amp apart and dont see any signs of fried parts. Is the output tranny blown?

    Fender 77 S.R. "squeaky" Vibro Channel

    Just got a 77 Super Reverb. The Vibrato makes a "squeaky" noise when on. It works perfectly but sounds like a mouse is squeaking inside the amp. If you don't engage the vibro the channel works fine, but as soon as you turn it on,,,wham. Any thoughts?

    Plexi vs. 2203 ?

    The 2203 is supposed to be based off of the Plexi. So I read (Marshall site). Whats the difference ? They are both strait forward single channel amps. Is it the pre-amp gain stage or what ? Can a Plexi rock as hard ( get a good heavy tone) with the ability to get better clean and headroom ? A...
