  • Lost the voltage selector on my Superbass.

    :cry:

    Anyone know where to find 'em for cheap?

    No. You'll have to get rid of the amp all together. Lucky for you I take broken amps.

        Use a piece of wire?
        Don't touch it when the amp's on though!

          Yeah I'd get it replaced with a rotary if you've lost it. I still have the plug style impedance selector on mine even though its probably one of the most ill thought out things marshall have ever done :lol:

              This. Man those old plugs are a pain in the ass. A tech can install a 3 way switch or just wire up separate speaker jacks for next to nothing. My other guitar player lost his at a gig and we got by with a piece of romex as a jumper.

                Have your tech hardwire it to 115 (just a jumper that solders to 2 points
                on the selector's back. Wouldn't hurt to put a small piece O' tape w/"Hardwired to 115" over the selector on back.

                Wouldn't hurt to do it to the impedance selector either.
