Re: Fender bassman 135 fix...
My aplogies. Many thanks to Major and John of course.
I am pretty sure he put the right tubes in - but one of them may have been not working from the start causing the failure. I wasn't there when it happened, but unless he changed them, all the right type of tubes were in the correct spots. They were all brand new, so it may be a possibility that one was not right at the get go, causing the failure. I believe the amp was working fine, then he installed a new set of tubes, turned it on and smelled smoke..... I will be sure to use tubes that i know work for sure after replacing the burned resistors.
Point taken on the 5w resistors tho, i will get some 1 or 2watt resistors from another supplier.
