    Blackstar St. James amps

    One thing to remember is when you are talking about Amps then give SMPS a wide birth as they can if not designed properly give every one a big head ache, in more ways than one.

    2 16ohm cabinets is how many ohms?

    We have to assume that the Y connector connects cables in parallel, never know one to connect in series, but as long as in this case the cable is connected to an 8Ohm output on the amp then all will be fine

    Read up on Ohms law that way you will find the answer, but in this case i will tell you what you need to know and that two 16Ohm speakers in parallel will give you 8Ohms

    Questions about tube biasing

    Engineer, electronic maybe but others maybe not, a competent electronic engineer would not ask questions like that Using the word "Engineer" sounds impressive but without saying what type is not.

    wiring question - 1935B cab

    Until you do then you will never be sure, its plain to see that it has been rewired in the past, not very well i might add, so do your self a favour and get it correct, also get the speaker positions right too, it might sound ok to you but thats only your opinion, others may differ. Your call.

    wiring question - 1935B cab

    Don't hesitate, just rewire the complete cabinet, then you will know that all is well, this being the only way to be sure.

    Can a blown screen grid resistor cause this?

    I doubt it very much, so many on here take on repairs that they have no clue on what to do and expect others that do know to tell them what needs to be done. Once they have done that then they get tempted to do other repairs until something goes very wrong Leave to those who know

    1995 Marshall ValveState 8100U Amp - 60hz hum.

    This is a very simple one, you have said that you have turned down everything and it is still there, you have taken out the pre amp tubes, still there, so its coming from the output stage, so as others have said it must be generated from the power supply which means AC filter capacitors, just...

    Historic content on official Marshall website s#cks!

    But i am still here and can pass on the history as all who still work for Marshall were not even born back then All the history over the years has been inaccurate, and they are ignorant of the true facts when i try to educate them. RIP Dudley Craven
