A longtime bass player friend of mine recently passed away and I'm trying to figure out if his amp head is worth repairing. The amp turns on and slowly fades away in like 20 seconds. Once it surged when turned on. Someone told me the power section is blown out and its not worth fixing. Just wondering if thats the case. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks

Contact Gallen Krueger support and see what they say. They've probably seen this many times. Hard to say if they have parts. If they don't, not many people will.

I had that head, should have kept it. I ran it in bi-amp mode into a Peavey cabinet that had 1-15" and 2-8"s. The 15" was replaced with an EVM 15.
It was a great amp.

So it comes down to - do you need it? Do you want it?
Even if you can get a working head for less, one that's been serviced at the factory is going to last a good long time.


There is never enough time to be in a hurry...
