Title: Fender hot rod deluxe failure-need advice
Post by: odysseys on September 22, 2004, 02:19:24 AM
I know it's off topic but we have trouble with the amp and we need  it soon for recording.Recently,when we opened it,it stopped working.
a)all valves are lit.
b)We can hear a distant and distorted sound when we crank the volume up.
c)The preamp out into an other amp's power amp input, works.(bad sound but ok volume
I suspect the electrical transformer caused this(110v to 220v).The amp says it needs 180w and the transformer is 200w (we tried another and it didn't work).Do we need a bigger one or should we seek the cause elsewhere? And what do you think is damaged?
Thanks in advance.
