A-Designs EQ-1 & MP-2r distortion

Hi!

I have a MP-2r and two EQ-1 made by A-Designs.
I bought them many years ago and I have'nt used them for a while since they all loose headroom and distort quite easily after being warmed up.
They are running on 230 VAC here in Sweden.

Before I dig into the units I would like to know if there's any info concerning repair and service that should be considered.

Any information would be appreciated.

Yes I got a very quick reply from him suggesting a tube change. I was having that in mind as well as checking electrolytics.

I changed the tubes on the EQ-1 and it helped. Found brown labelled JJ ECC99 for a decent price in Germany. All electrolytics were fine.

Gonna get sovtek 6N1P & JJ EF806 for the MP-2r from the same supplier ( Tube-Town ) unless anyone of you gearslut-people knows a nice alternative here in Europe.
