Amplifier Housekeeping 101

Check out the inside of this old Ampeg Reverberocket. Looks like it was with our troops in Afghanistan. So much dirt, dust and crud it’s a wonder it actually works.

This amp needs a really good cleaning and some routine maintenance. The question is how did the owner(s) over the years let it get so far out of hand? My guess is just plain, simple not knowing that cleaning the inside of an amp chassis is part of routine service.

Next time you take your amp in for service ask the tech to drop the chassis and give it a good cleaning. If you keep on it your amp will never look like this…
