I found a guy in Peterborough came well recommended from a good friend. I thought he had packed it in but he just closed up his own shop and now works part time out of Hank to Hendrix shop. Problem with amp and noise was found to be output transformer. I also found out that Uptown Music in Peterborough is an Ampeg dealer so parts can be had without going out of town. Thanks for all tips, references etc. :wave:

Paul, can I ask what model is your ampeg?

I'm curious because I have a '63 Reverbrocket and the noise is getting unbearable. I'd be interested to know what repairs had to be done to yours...

Well it is a SJ-12R, and the noise problem came from the output transformer. The noise was a real low freq hum and after I think about it, it makes sense as to where the problem was.

You talkin` bout Tony??? How can I get hold of him?? He was awesome. He has worked on every one of my amps, and I am nothing but satisfied with his work.

Yea the one and only good one in Peterborough. I can get you the number for Hank to Hendrix if you'd like or the next time I'm at Dennis's I can get you his home number.
