Don and Troy, thank you and my JTM-50 says thank you. I was not about to haul my variac to the gig but the tone out of this amp is one of my favorites, thus that poor ol' thing saw 117-120 vac ALOT.  
 
Today I installed a 12 volt 3 amp AC transformer and the power transformer now sees 104 vac. My plate voltage went from 496 to 427 vdc and the filament was 6.8, now at 6 vac. You guys are great!

Steve A. Are these voltage drops typical for 12v XFMR? -- 9/16/2000 7:01 PM
