Re: Why are used Matchless amps so expensive?
It sure seems like they could have come up with a different scheme for mounting the filters...For those who've not seen the innards, there is a bunch (6?)of smallish (.5"x2") axial caps glued together in a wad and wrapped in electrical tape, and then glued to the chassis (how would you replace one?). Everything else looks good, but it is this ugly wad of caps that is always the first thing my eyes are drawn to.
