valve amps


1968 Telecaster with Marshal MA100C.

The amp belongs to my cousin, who actually got it in a private deal on Craigslist for a PRS SE guitar.  The Reverb doesn’t work so he asked me to take a look at it. I’m no tech, but apparently this is a common issue with this model…one of the wires in the reverb tank gets disconnected.  When I opened the tank up, sure enough, that was the issue.  Now I just have to figure out how to fix it.  the wires are totally insulated, so I am not sure if I can just take the insulation off and solder it…or if the insulation is required (once I remove it it ain’t going back on!)

Hanging out at my place today.
