Re: Need help fixing Tube Screamer

Re: Need help fixing Tube Screamer
Well, I opened the box up and the diode was actually broken in two pieces. I fear that the protection diode was broken when he bought the thing, so applying AC may have been deadly to the other components. What likely would have been damaged by this? I can check any resistors or caps, but the IC is beyond my abilities. Should I just replace thie IC? Or are there more likely culprits?  
Thanks in advance,
