What are you looking to do, Jerry? Build, service or understand the philosophy thereof?

I am trying to learn to repair my own amps and can only get so far with books. I need to ask questions to someone who knows what they are doing. I have a scope, meters, RF and AF generators etc and am just learning to use them. I can basically read schematics but when it comes to relating them to what I see in the real thing I get lost. I have been wanting to do this for years and have finally decided to give it a real go and have been hitting the books pretty hard. Yet, like anything else, reading books and understanding what you read is one thing, doing it is another. At sixty years of age this old brain just ain't what she used to be.

See, that's your basic problem. You have a 'she' for a brain. Mr. Green

Jerry, I have an acquaintance in the UK who builds amps, and I'm sure will be happy to answer your questions, Trevor Ridney of Tipton Amps;

info@tipton-amps.co.uk

Feel free to mention that Frank from Perth, Western Australia referred you to him. Trev's also a red-hot guitar player and a thoroughly nice bloke.

My hands are giving out and my voice is going. I would like to stay connected to music somehow and if I can't play much anymore this would be a good way to do it.

He may be out of the office for Christmas, but hopefully you'll get some help from him, Jerry.

He's probably busy fixing amplifiers, or he may be out gigging somewhere. Be patient, Trev might be a one-man operation.
