Free Blown VTL Amp To Good Home, in LA
« on: October 09, 2009, 04:04:32 pm »

I found a VTL Compact 160 chassis on the street, with OPT and Power Trans, PS caps and wiring still in place. Tube sockets, power cord and fuse holder have been removed. Looks like the Power Transformer is blown, I can't seem to get any continuity through the taps, but can through the OPT. Looks like all the wiring is in place, not fried.
Looked around on nets, PP 6550 I think, no tubes incl.

PM if interested, come by the studio in Eagle Rock and pick er up.

Sounds like a project for Mr. Bill Yates.  I think he's in Mexico at the moment.

EDIT:  Oh never mind, I was thinking guitar amp.

Wait... what?

Do you mean someone put it out for trash pick-up, or people sometimes randomly throw stuff in the streets?

You can fix it up and use it to listen to your Beatles mono box set.

They say the heart of Rock & Roll is still beating, which is amazing if you consider all the blow it's done over the years.

"The Internet enables pompous blowhards to interact with other pompous blowhards in a big circle jerk of pomposity." - Bill Maher

"The negative aspects of this business, not only will continue to prevail, but will continue to accelerate in madness. Conditions aren't going to get better, because the economics of rock and roll are getting closer and closer to the economics of Big Business America." - Bill Graham

No problem to ship anywhere if someone will pay for shipping. PM me and we'll sort it out. Also, no bottom plate.
