    Yes, Tom, that's right.
    The seller was insisting on a F&F payment (or bank transfer) he said because he didn't want to lose any money covering the Paypal fees, but I added the 4% onto his price to cover the fees myself and made sure I got buyer protection.
    When I made that clear to him he wasn't best pleased about it, and tried to tell me that I was somehow in the wrong for having the temerity to try and protect myself and my money while buying vintage hifi off a stranger on the internet!

    But agreed, I won't be returning the amp if there's any way David can restore it to its former glory. And it sounds like he's up for the challenge!

    Just for the record I have all the specs for these transformers if need be. As it happens I actually have a NOS pair of TT100 output transformers and a pair of newly wound ones to the same design (originally intended for another application).

    Very much a botched cap replacement but should be easily enough fixed by someone who cares. If its anywhere near fixable its worth spending a bit of money on

    I hope this gets fixed, I think it will be worth it, even just for to boon of owning it.

    Good luck!

    I doubt you will have much trouble in getting this amp back to perfect condition.
    Here is hoping anyway. Good find from a 'questionable' seller, best of luck with it.
    Firebottle - for the no bottleneck approach.

    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Had a look at the pictures this morning: blue tac......what can you say? I had a pre in a year or so ago whose innards were held together with Blue Tac. Any shock and there was a risk of something moving and shorting.......
