Picked this up today. Doesn’t work
Congratulations have you done any trouble shooting yet ??
Did it come with a power cord? Thats the first thing I'd check.
Congrats on your New Mosfet Lead Amp!
I think the cat likes it too!
Did you know it didn't work when you got it... Plans to fix it....
He hasn't fired it up yet.
Were you aware that it doesn't work when you bought it?
Hey you did it! Got the 412 cab too in the package too, right?
Thank everyone. I did know that it was broken when I bought it. Doing some trouble shooting now
So I cracked this bad last open and probed around a bit with the old multi meter and a schematic for the old 3210 board. After allot of probing I couldn’t find anything wrong. So I plugged it in. Red light came on. Rectifier is rectifying. So obviously next step would be plug the thing in, hook it to a guitar and play it. And you know what? Works... 2 pots are pretty stiff and one is bent a little. But it seems to work fine. Got a lead 100 for $50 and it works.
@OP: seems things are working out pretty good. Congratulations on the new amp.
It does seem that there’s an issue with the reverb tank tho. Anyone know where to get a replacement?
Is the end of the spring actually broken or can it be hooked back on?
no the end that goes into the little tubes on the end seems to have come out or broken off inside the tube.
thanks for the link that was super helpful. I ordered a MOD replacement tank and some depxit to clean out the pots
Here is one of mine, they both look like twins, both are built in 1985.
Congratulations on your new amp brother
Congrats on the amp purchase. Hey, that’s probably a US made Accutronics 3-spring reverb tank. They don’t make them like that anymore. Company was moved to Asia but there used to be some former workers in the Midwest who would repair the original tanks. Not sure if still around. Worth getting fixed if you can find someone who can do it.
