That would be a much cheaper solution, I guess.
Anyhow, the V72 doesn't work, it only produces hum and noise. I contacted the seller, and he told me that I have to replace the Elco's and the feedbackresistors(which he already told when I bought it). I thought that old elco's wouldn't cause the preamp to fail, just producing more hum. But I must say I'm an electronics noob. He said that the transformers were fine.
So, I went to an electronics store. They told me that they couldn't deliver elco's working at this current (450/525 volts). I also checked a couple of online electronics stores, but they didn't have those either...... Any suggestions ?
The seller told me how to start the faultfinding, so I'll better start doing that before spending money on parts that may not be necessary to replace. Of course, I need some equipment to do so...
Another question > If (one of) the tubes fail, would that mean that there won't be any sound anymore ? Or would the level just be decreased ?
