lucky. and you'd have to check the manuals (can probably get them online) to check which fuses you would need.

You could just take it to a music store and be like "fix it." Might cost a bit more than just finding the parts yourself, but you're more likely to get it right and less likely to break it more.

fuses are like 6 usd for 5 of them. you would just have to see which ones you need

I'd bring it to a shop and get it checked anyway (even if fuses are a joke to change).

The amp is probably all dusty inside if it hasn't worked in 10 years

Even if it's busted, you got a free cab. I'd hate to see that head busted though :p Do go get it serviced, and tell us if it works! Lucky bastage :@

Take it to a shop, if your not feeling absloutely 100% confident. Caps still hold charge, even after 10 years, so you could easily hurt yourself if you don't know what your doing.



I've read that caps can discharge after 2 weeks
#12
yeah, i'm pretty sure caps don't stay charged for 10 years.

large caps can hold a lethal charge for one helluva long time. smaller ones can discharge quickly, but even after 10 years there may still be a charge on some of them.

with something that stopped working 10 years ago, there is no reason not to take it to a tech. just have someone give it a once over and make sure its still in good condition to play. you dont want to damage the cab, your guitar, or yourself with an amp that is messed up.

well it stopped because the fuses were stolen lol - and anfter that my buddy stopped playing for some reason .... but yea i just gonna try that with the fuses(because i got like a 50€ budget for now...) and still if that workes i take it to the shop just so he can take a look at it and that i know how much it would cost to fix it (won't open it or something) - man im so happy that i got my hands on that lol

btw im confused is it true that the only thing the cab needs is the guitar cable from the head?no external powerup thingy?nothing?
and whats that "charge" stuff you're talking about Oo he's charged?
