I'm pretty sure it was a combinations of highly damaged pots, some resting on other components causing oscillations, and a bad normal input jack. Re soldered all the caps while i was in there.

nice, really like how those amps sound and have wanted one for a while. seems like it would be a solid little amp that could be used for a lot of recording applications

Story time:
Last month I answered a craigslist ad that said fifty bucks for all the music gear in this guys storage unit. I saw this peavey 2x12 and figuered if nothing else I could put some speakers in it and get my money's worth. Also included was this Kustom amp that used to be a combo and was crudely cut down to a head. The reverb tank isn't even mounted down. They are both grubby as hell and I didn't have much hope for the amp. Had some time today so I dragged them up from my basement and MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME, THEY BOTH WORK! Can't turn it up much at home but I love the dirt channel on this thing. Pure 70's solid state sleaze and the trem even works.
I'm in love :love:
Gives me hope for the other junk that came with: Two massive powered mixers - one peavey, one fender. We'll see...

NAD!

Picked this funky guy up a few weeks ago over on madbean. The box was sound but wasn't my style so I did the best I could to make it look a little better with a belt sander and redid the grill cloth with a scrap I had. It's most likely a ~61 Teisco made for the Melody brand similar to the Teisco model 15 amp it seems. 2x6av6, 1x6ar5 and a 6x4 rectifier (7pin mini tubes!). Speaker was torn :( but Parts express had a buyout replacement match for $12! I've never played an early champ but I assume that's what it sounds like, pretty awesome cleans with a little distortion when driven really hard. I traced the circuit into a schematic if anyone is interested since I couldn't find a matching one online.

Thats hella tight dude


Sometimes I get so upset that I don't have a goth gf I put on type-o-negative and jerk off.
