Members gregovertone Posted July 10, 2006 Members Share Posted July 10, 2006 1st up..... what a pain in the ass. the past couple practices, i found my amp makin really strange noises. electrical sounds......etc. i knew it was time to change. the screws weren't too bad to remove. nothing stripped, didn't tear the tolex. getting the chassis out was a pain. we had to de-solder the red white speaker leads.....luckily managed to avoid the blk/yellow ones. if my friends weren't there to hold the chassis, i would have had to remove all the leads. anyways....i pulled the 3 chinese tubes out. i found it semi difficult to get tubes back into the 12ax7 slots. got'm.....but it was a bit of a struggle. v1: gt mullard RI v2: gt mullard ri v3: tung sol put everything back together, turned it on......sounded great. i believe that in the newer ac30cc's, they either gave longer speaker leads, or they added disconnects. i was pretty shocked that they didn't think that one through, initially. it made a 2 minute process a full 1/2 hour.
