501, Not The Jeans

Can you guess what this sweet sound is.

Yep, that’s sguitar’s Vox 501. It’s working fine but needs either a new volume pot or maybe a resistor for the lead channel. It works just fine if the the volume is set 5+ but 1 to 5 nothing. The rhythm channel works great.

Hope you don’t mind sguitar but I can’t stop playing through it, real fun amp. Not as nice sounding as a Vox AC15 or AC30 but a kick butt rock amp. I’ll bring it back Monday.

    K, thanks. Sounds great. How much $$ is the vol. pot.

    They only cost a few dollars but your going to need to bring it to a amp repair guy. If it was my amp I’d dive right in… But best to have it done by someone that works on vintage amps everyday. I think there is a real good repair shop above Downtown sounds in northampton.

    You can still use the amp until you bring it for repair. But don’t wait to long. Oh and do you have a foot switch for the amp, unless I blind that seems to be the only way to switch from channel one to channel two.

    We were planning on getttin one-foot switch anyways.
