I brought my '73 Super Reverb into a local tech who was recommended to me by my most trusted guitar tech in town. I just bought this amp last week. I haven't received an estimate from him yet, but based on what he and I went through when I dropped it off and what other people on this forum are telling me, I'm probably looking at 350 bucks to get this thing giggable. Now, a lot of the cost is having to re-cone two of the speakers (all of them are original and from what the tech tells me, he sees holes in speakers in these amps all the time). Do you guys think that if I skip the re-cone for now, I can get away with having a respectable sounding amp for a while? I would just have him recap and retube the amp for now and then either replace the speakers or have him re-cone them later. I've got quite a few shows coming up and I need my amp. But i need it sounding decent~ any input?
