Might be repairable but what type of amp (tube or tranny?) and what more specifically has happened to it?

Cheers,
Tony

Dont throw it away.I made that mistake with a Fender Ultimate Chorus amp i had and it could have probably been fixed in the board.Unless it just really blew up like a bomb laugh.gif .You gotta think you got the speakers that still may work,all the extra electronic parts you can use or sell on Ebay biggrin.gif Also the box is usable to make another amp out of maybe.So i wouldnt throw it away unless you have no room for it or are rich smile.gif

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Maybe you could sell the cabinet to MickeM or Andrew for their amp builds wink.gif .

Seriously though - it may be repairable or as shredmandan says some bits you might be able to salvage.

Tony

Cool idea smile.gif

If it s a tube amp it could be simply a blown tube - an expected consumable in tube amps.
