CHAMP ELECTRONICS -" THE VINTAGE VALVE AMP HOSPITAL"

NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND

 

    SERVICING A FENDER 75 AMPLIFIER HEAD & A FENDER 75 COMBO

 

1. FENDER 75 AMPLIFIER HEAD:

 

In for a general good service, along with a change of both very dodgy power & standby switches. Infact the power switch was so "iffy", it was constantly tripping earth-leakage breakers!!

 

 

A nice amp. I had advised the customer to let me change the Brimar NOS (new old stock) 6L6G's. Beautiful as these are, the screen grids do not stand the high voltages that some Fenders have. I did a deal with him and fitted a lovely pair of 70's GE's......no more glowing screen grids!

2. FENDER 75 COMBO:

As both the amps belonged to the same customer it was just as easy to do them both together. Both chassis are shown side-by-side above; a good idea for "A - B" comparisons & fault finding! I ended up fitting my last pair (boo-hoo) of beautiful NOS (new old stock) Sylvania 6L6GC's in this one.
