Thank you neikeel. Boy I am learning quite a bit as I am trying to make up for the lack of a thorough examination and repair by a local amp tech a good number of musicians in Baltimore has used for years. He did me no favors the 2 times I had the amp to him for correction of fuse blowing issues. I will keep all your advice in mind along with the similar advice of a few other guys who are good with amps and good with electronics who I have already had evaluations and suggestions the same and similar to your advice so far. I forget if it was you or one of those other guys who also suggested NOT using a 2 amp slow blow fuse in the mains but rather use the regular 2 Amp ADC one. What is your take on that?
