I would like to coordinate the opportunity to try the amp before you buy it this weekend. At this point I am shooting to go up Saturday morning.
Congrats on your 64. I'm glad you found the tone you were looking for. Did you play through my 64 while you were there?
I think it's because the part has to comply with import laws in Europe and Japan. The old parts that fit tightly have lead in them. That's what I heard.
Hi Anaconda, is it this same amp you described as receiving last week here:
Maybe it took a shot in shipping from the fellow you bought it from. Is the reverb OK now? No worries, Joe will take care of it if it doesn't work or just bugs you.Man, my amp arrived today but the box was beat up pretty bad and the FedEx guy dropped it about 10 inches onto my tile floor as I opened the door... I almost decked him.
Now the reverb control doesn't seem to do anything except add hum.
I'm happy to send you replacement switches at no charge. If you have a qualified tech handy, that may be the quick and simple solution. Let me know!Joe's already sent out a new reverb tank so hopefully that will take care of that problem.
Both the AC and the Standby switches are loose (meaning that the lever spins) but the Hi-Lo switch is firm.
Terrible --- had some bad experiences as well.......Thanks Joe. At this point I'm going to wait and hope that the new tank fixes the reverb. If it doesn't, I may end up having to send the amp to you because I have no business messing around with high-voltage electronics.
I really appreciate all your help as this is a pretty frustrating situation.
I can tell you I won't be using FedEx again. :/
