|This amp below does NOT sound great, and not everything DOES work.|
The reverb tank is missing.
The sound is always fuzzy at any setting.
The power supply goes weak after 3 notes are played and the volume drops to a fraction of the first note played..
This was an as-is working-item sale, should have been sold as repair or parts project, in other words "JUNK", worth maybe $40.00
At the minimum, somebody ran it with a shorted speaker lead and fried some of the output components.
I'm not amused. This is a serious rebuild project. It sounds like crap and is on it's deathbed.
|I'll be starting an amp technical section.|
Included will be this Carvin L2500 rebuild project.
Also the rejuvenation of my Mitchell amp, clone of the first model Mesa Boogie.
Mostly it has some microphonic tubes. Tracing the signal path, etc.
What do all them knobs do and how and why.
