Hello everyone. i have been going to this forum for over a year now, soaking up knowledge and getting different peoples takes on things. It has been great! I started playing guitar over 20 years ago, and in 96 picked up my first electric! A Gibson les paul studio lite and a fender Ultimate chorus. I miss the Gibson. Now i have a fender highway one, and a broken JTM30! I am an electronics technician. Not a very good one, working on that. I am slowly getting everything together to repair my Marshall JTM30. Luckily i have a seasoned tech to offer me some help. I don't know how much tube experience he has though. I'm looking into buying another amp as well, Who knows how long these repairs will take... I don't gig now.. just play at home. Glad to be here!
