New amplifiers, interesting repairs and other musings
My Derelict Scarlett Scout Chief is reporting for duty.
This was a Hot Rod Deville that came into the shop for repair along with a few other Hot Rod series amps. The baffle board was detached, the bottom was falling off, there were no tubes in it, the circuit board had a big hole blown in it, it was missing a speaker, no handle, all the chassis screws were stripped or missing, the back was falling off and the owner wisely decided to not sink $3-400 into it. I made him a fair offer on the carcass and applied it towards the repair of the other amps.
I have spent many hours fixing the structural issues and building a new Scout circuit inside the old ugly shell and it sounds awesome now!
