This single control model is currently fitted with a CTS pot 500k linear +/-20% with standard rotational torque. For anyone interested the first image is from the CTS data sheet allowing you to decipher their code stamped into the rear […]

Cable build @shroprockdoctor. As requested by the owner of the H&K zenTera modeling amplifier the proprietary interconnect cable to join the head to the H&K Zboard foot controller is almost complete with just the db9 plug insert requiring soldering. After scouring the Internet for information regarding the pinout for this cable & drawing a complete […]

Hughes and Kettner ZenTera 200w stereo modelling head in @shroprockdoctor for a memory battery replacement. Had to install a different format cell to the original but it’s still a Varta Mempack 2.4v 80h rated package. Presets are now retained after a power down. This amp arrived with the H&K Zboard controller which requires the proprietary […]

Visiting @shroprockdoctor this morning is the first of three Gretch guitars from Mr McCreadie’s collection requiring work. This one has come in for a little attention to the volume potentiometer & the nut requires a little tweek as the strings sometimes stick when utilising the tremolo. This is the Brian Setzer Hot Rod Model, G6120SHPTV […]

This 3 way toggle from a ’78 Gibson Les Paul Custom is the reason the guitar came in @shroprockdoctor on Wednesday. I was preparing for a swap out & had a replacement on hand. On removal I realised the Switchcraft branded toggle was good quality & perfectly serviceable, held together with just two screws. A […]

Back @shroprockdoctor is Mr McCreadie’s ’78 Gibson Les Paul Custom for attention to the three way toggle switch which was chemically cleaned when serviced but unfortunately is still intermittent. While testing the guitar after the switch repair I noticed that the two tone controls were extremely ineffective. Turned out the ceramic caps weren’t working properly. […]

  Marshall DSL100H @shroprockdoctor for repair of an unspecified fault. Powered up via variac the fault presents as a loud hum through the connected speaker. All fuses intact. Owner has apparently installed new valves which as can be seen in the image we’re all incorrectly seated in the bases. Valves are now correctly installed but […]

  Ibanez RG series super Strat sporting a Roland GK2 hex pickup @shroprockdoctor. Fret dress & setup. This is actually my guitar that has been hanging on a wall unplayed for a couple of years. A customer came to collect an amp I repaired & I handed him this guitar to try out his amp. […]

Finishing up today @shroprockdoctor we are as far as trying to source the memory battery for this H&K zenTera modelling amplifier head. The rechargeable ni-mh battery pack is a Varta flat package with 3 pins & is proving quite a task to source. It is a 2.4v 80mah package. I removed it from the processing […]

A pair of Alesis M2 active studio monitors on soak test playing Tool & now being treated to some Dream Theater @shroprockdoctor. Amplifiers had to be removed to re-cap the power supplies, again poor design with electrolytic capacitors in close proximity to heatsink getting their electrolyte boiled. guitarfx #guitar #rackeffects #homerecordingstudio #guitarrepair #caudio #amplifier #bridgnorthbusiness  […]
