well, that's the plan. it's an old (got a service sticker inside that says 1979, but looks way older than that) FAL Kestrel solid state amp. It's got two identical channels, each with a volume, bass and treble pot and a Normal and Bright input, then a master Volume, Depth and Presence control. I guess it must be a bass or keyboard amp or something... friends of a friend found it on a skip, but it still works! just about... It's got a gorgeous clean sound, but i need a decent Hifi, so am I right in thinking it wouldn't be too hard to convert it? I mean, even if I just end up with a working (ie. fix the crackly/cutting out power switch/master volume) guitar amp, it'll still do... but I'd LIKE to change whatever needs changing to make it better for Hifi use. I'll remove the spring reverb, but should I remove the preamp section(s) altogether? I wouldn't have thought I'd need them... it'd be useful to have tone control there, but i imagine it'd be easiest to just avoid any possible guitar-orienteated colouration and get rid of it, so I've just got a Hifi power amp... right so far?
