A friend's noname pawn shop amp... what is it? Garnet stencil?
It's a Garnet, could be a United or a Vagabond or a whatever else. I don't have a schematic and have never been able to track down one for these stencil ones. The circuits are real simple on them though. What do you need for tubes? I have some NOS 50c5sbigburcie said:So a Garnet Vagabond it is? Does anyone know where to find the schematic for it?
Filter caps don't have to be exact. You can usually go a bit bigger in mfd value and ALWAYS go higher in voltage rating! The higher the voltage rating the harder it is to blow the cap up.bigburcie said:The tubes have been replaced and should be fine. The filter caps hanging out the back are the problem. I think they're shot, which is giving me a major hum problem. They're apparently hard to find a matching set too. they're 150mfd 150 volt, so if anyone knows where I can find a suitable replacement (vintage or modern) that would be great.
