So I was playing through the Vadis (the combo - similar to the one about a third down the page) Vadis.

Then there was silence.

And smoke...

It would appear the transformer's blown. One place suggested bringing it in, they'd reqind the transformer and charge me $270AU.

Any other suggestions?

Well, yeah. The amp's about 40 years old so I was wondering what the chances of tracking one down are... Never had the problem with other amps before and sod's law would mean that it's the oldest piece of kit I have.

Are the transformers easy to come by?

Should've just asked that way in the first place...

if you're interested in keeping it original you'll need to get it rewound. I doubt you'll find that exact transformer anymore. you could replace the transformer with a different transformer but the amp will probably be a bit different afterwards.

That's what I figured. Cheers...

Which transformer was it? The output transformer has a huge effect on tone but the power transformer does not. If it's the power transformer, you can find one with similar specs and drop it in without much tonal change. The output transformer is a different story. Even if they rewind the original it's going to sound very different.

It's the output - thanks for the links and advice.

From pulling a few bits apart the other night it looks like there have been enough changes in the amp to make marked changes to tone already.
A new sound is always nice, too.
