The WINTER PROJECT, as my amplifier restoration is known, has been energized for the first time.
The good news: It did not blow up or catch on fire.
The bad news: All it does is hum, and somewhat loudly at that.
Q: "What does one do when one's amp hums all the time?"
A: Teach it some words.
I'll try a few things over the week-end.
Electrocution is not on the agenda.
