|Mark Black||Marshall SL-X Standby Pop|
Hi all -
I've got a Marshall model 2100 (JCM 900) SL-X on the bench right now which has a pretty substantial pop when turning the standby switch on or off. Every now and then it won't pop, I suppose when I'm lucky enough to hit the "zero cross" point in the AC waveform at switching.
I have actually disassembled, inspected, and cleaned the contacts in the switch so don't feel it is the culprit.
Is this a normal thing for these models?
Anyone successfully cured this problem with an MOV or cap across the switch terminals?
Thanks - Mark
