Alamo amp trem repair...
Hi- this is an late 50's Alamo tube amp, 1@ 5Y3,6V6,12AX7 and 6AV6. Volume, tone, speed and depth pots, 3 input jacks, and a footswitch jack on the front panel.When I found it, the 6AV6 was missing, and having replaced it, the amp works (needs re-capped and pots cleaned) but the trem doesn't. There's no trem roach, so I'm guessing it's a bias- vary type. What should I look at first? Thanks in advance...
