CHAMP ELECTRONICS -" THE VINTAGE VALVE AMP HOSPITAL"

NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND

GENERAL SERVICING WORK CARRIED OUT ON SEVEN GIBSON AMPLIFIERS

 

Hello folks. Well, here are seven Gibson amps to add to the web-site. They are a BR-6, a BR-9, an Explorer, a Les Paul Junior, a Falcon, a Varitone, and an Invader.
 
As with most Gibson amps they tend to be pretty good and reliable....even when very old! This is a good testament to their quality. Apart from mainly a few dried and tired capacitors, all the main resistors are generally OK. The only time this falls down is when some incompetent repairer has had their hands on one and for no apparent reason has bodged here, there, and everywhere! Just check-out the Invader.....that one certainly falls into this category!
 
Enjoy the article and photos........John.
