I just wanted to be 100% sure, but are there any instances of step down converters on US plugs damaging tube amps in anyway, whether it be circuitry, tubes etc.?

This may seem like a noobish question, but I just wanted to find out, thanks.

I've been offered a really good deal, and am tempted, but didn't want to waste my money on an amp that will die and/or kill me when plugged in.
there is no fear in this heart.

It will work. The converter won't do you harm if it functions correctly. If you've got rack gear and AC powered fx run them all off the same converter as the amp.

no, its not the power that will hurt it, as ssoon as you bring the amp across the boarder, it will spontanusly combust....im serious, dont do it!

Yes good quality step down converters work well.

How do you think bands tour over seas? Do you honestly think they buy new amps for every country?

If you can vary the voltage of the amp with a switch on board, then you would have no worries just replacing the US 3 prong female plug with a UK one, as long as it used that kind of power cable.

I never thought of that actually, I thought some bands rent gear?

+thanks for all the help guys, really appreciate it.
