Dry humor, dry cap!
Brew- this will explain most problems/w trouble shooting
Just don't put any heat near the trannys without asking about heatsinks, and even then..........
ahhh..heat sinks. i remember those...wouldn't they be helpful when soldering short cap leads?
Dont need em for the cap leads really....
got em right here....already burnt on the end too.....
The problem was in the battery connector wires (as CB correctly predicted... thanks Charlie)... underneath those 2 strips of silver gaffer tape were years of crud and the two ends of wire were just twisted together (on both +ve and -ve terminals). I just stripped back the wires, resoldered the joins - encasing them in heat shrink. Attached the battery... et VOILA!!!

Not exactly versatile... you get the one sound, but reducing the treble, using the "Filter" pot, gives progressively more "Womantone" like sound.
Going to put it thru the Orange AD30 combo when the neighbours have gone out 8) 8)
Just plugged in the Firebird ....... YEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

At my age, SKids, "old gear" is all there is....
