CHAMP ELECTRONICS -" THE VINTAGE VALVE AMP HOSPITAL"
REPAIR OF AN AMPEG REVERBEROCKET COMBO AMPLIFIER
Also belonging to the same customer Pete who owns the
Mercury M12 combo, but brought in at a different time, this Reverberocket was
also suffering from sounding pretty rough…….a condition which came on
This model uses a pair of 7591A tubes for the output, and
6U10 triple-triodes for the front-end. Earlier versions used 6SN7 and 6SL7
tubes, whereas some of the later ones reverted to the more conventional ECC83/12AX7's.
Pete loves his Celestion Vintage 30's in his amps. I believe he still has the original drivers though.
Another classic old amp!
And this one turned out to have a duff output
transformer too. It has been re-wound and re-fitted here.
