Sorry to be asking about a fender amp, but you guys are a very knowledgeable crowd so i will ask anyway...
A friend has given me his bassman 135 to fix (because i own a soldering iron!).
One of the 470 ohm 1w resistors on the power tubes cooked, so i am putting in 4 new ones at 5w each. I think this is better, but please let me know if its a bad idea.
One of the two 39ohm .5watt resistors wired between v2 and the hum balance pot also cooked. The dude i buy caps. etc from says he uses 2x 100 ohm for artificial center taps. Is this cool?
I am also replacing the filter caps because they have some brown rusty looking stain spots on their ends.
Stock values are: 2x220uf285vdc - i am putting in 2x220uf300v. I think this is fine.
3x16uf450vdc caps are being replaced by 3x16uf475vdc. I think this is fine too.
There are two 70uf100v caps that need replacing, but he only has 100uf100v caps - is this okay?
Okay thats everything. Cheers!
