FDP Forum / Fender Amps: 1985 - Current / Supersonic 60 Combo Question



Sep 8th, 2016 05:50 AM   Edit   Profile  

First let me state that my electronics knowledge is very low so forgive any mistakes I may make in trying to explain this. I wanted to bring my US Fender Supersonic back to Thailand so I had the power transformer changed to a Hammond 290 VEX. Since the change everything was working great. Recently I noticed a severe drop in power which I suspect are the tubes since the present tubes are quite old. While doing some research about bias and plate voltage I saw on a schematic that the 110v version had a 3 amp fuse while the 220/240 had a 1.6A fuse. I also saw that on the 100/120V version there was a .1 250VAC capacitor, C97, between the black and white wires coming from the power line in but this cap is absent in the 220/240V version. I will change the fuse but do I need to do anything with this cap? I have no idea what it does or doesn't do. Thanks for any help you can give me.

You might get a good response if you repost in the "Amps Mods, Repairs and Projects" thread. Many techs huddle over there and talk gibberish.
