Re: Sho-Bud Amp
There are lots of different models of these amps. I have one but not the one with the faders (slider pots). They need the typical maintenence, indicated by the circuit's age, which in most cases is the early 70's: Get a schematic, replace electrolytics, pay attention to the power amp and power supply, replace drifted resistors (these amps usually use carbon comps, which like to drift). There are alot of ceramic caps in these amps and certain positions could probably benefit from a better quality device, depending on its function. If your amp uses edge connector circuit cards, clean the edge connectors with a pencil eraser. You'll notice the tone stack, although transistor driven is very much like a Fender tone stack. They are reliable amps and good for certain instruments, when working correctly.
