We've created a blog of some of our recent repairs. Rather than trying to fit them into a certain category they're just listed here most with pictures and a description of the fault and roughly the work done to repair guitar amplifiers. We're happy for people to use the blog as a guide to repair as long as you are competent to do so. Remember working on valve amplifiers contains potentially lethal voltages in excess of 500V DC, which is much worse than 230V AC from the wall socket. As a warning we must advise that it is unsafe to work on electronics unless you are skilled and confident to do so.
