Mark I Suitcase Power amp broken fuse
« on: February 22, 2016, 09:44:35 AM »
Hi,
I just bought a wonderfull Mark I suitcase electric piano. Today I realized playing with the tremolo that one of the amp was not working...Checking the amp from the back panel, I saw there was one of the amp fuse broken. I was about to go buy one new, when I saw there was only 32Volt written on it. The guy from my next door tool shop told me that he could find a fuse of this type, and that he needed the ampere value...How the user from europe or france are proceeding to find that fuse? What are the specifications of that fuse?

Thanks in advance!

Thomas

Not a stupid question. I never saw this post. I would take the other one out and look at that and see what it is. It shouldn't be hard to find one. The amp rating is more important. You don't want it to be too high. It should be between 1-2 amps most likely
