Toymaker , Why dont you run this idea about inrush current limiters by Bob or Jordan see how they feel about its usage in the primary winding of the power transformer.

Re: Fucking piss me off

Hope you electronic tube-o-philes solve this. :-k The only thing I understand is the change out of the slo-blo fuse. ](*,) Will have two more amps to pick up this weekend. #-o Sounds like another edit to the build schematic may be forthcoming.

All seems well I have been listening to them for the last 3 hours without so much as a hickup.

Re: Fucking piss me off

Harry, seems to be that the people that are having problems are the ones that did not install a on/off switch & are plugging & unplugging their amps!!! I installed a switch & have not had any problems so far? just a thought as maybe that is causing this? with a switch installed wouldnt the fused socket have power all the time up to the switch? just my .02 :)

Re: Fucking piss me off

Al, I thought George had installed a switch on his amp and he is having this problem. George am I right about this?

Re: Fucking piss me off

Re: Fucking piss me off
