CHAMP ELECTRONICS -" THE VINTAGE VALVE AMP HOSPITAL"

NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND

SERVICING A CARLSBRO CS60 Mk I BASS AMPLIFIER







These are a pretty nice amp, only 60 watts but nevertheless sounding very good.





Typical Carlsbro layout.





Right-hand chassis view.





Middle view. She just needed a few resistors and caps changing.






Left-hand chassis view. Note the red speaker output jack nuts.....quite a trendy (and practical) thing to do on amps nowadays!











Very few companies actually did this but.....note how the output transformer has a larger stack size [2"] on this one being the bass version, whereas the guitar version's OTX had a 1.25" stack. This is always a good thing to do on a bass amp, as it makes the saturation point at lower frequencies better. Carlsbro however did not continue this trend with subsequent models.






As always, a good reliable Carlsbro.
