I have a Krank REV1 head that won't power up. I had it given to me so I don't know much about its history. Whenever I try to use it, it blows fuses almost instantly. The tubes don't light up and neither does the power indicator light on the front.

Are there any regular problems these heads have? Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can try before taking it to a tech?

Thankyou.

If it's just tubes wouldn't the indicator light turn on? They're not cloudy or dark the way dead tubes usually look.

are there any internal HT fuses?

I have no idea, nor do I know what a HT fuse is. I'll research, open it up and check.

I'm sure it has high tension (HT) fuse(s) and mains fuse(s).

Be careful not to touch stuff inside the amp if you don't know what you are doing. They (filter capacitors and their leads NOT the fuses themselves) can hold a lethal charge even unplugged.

High tension. They are in the chassis. don't poke around in there if you don't know what you are doing, There are lethal charges in there.
