When i bought it it looked like this
I decided to restore it to its original colour (or as close as i could…)
After 5 months of great fun, I had to open it up because the output went silent.
Gutshots of the Hohner Basset!
Lets start with the DIN jack that connects it to the bass amp..
Inside the white enclosure there’s a lamp and a ldr.. the lamp is a 10v Valvo branded item. It doesnt light up so that may be a clue..good luck trying to find a replacement.. but my guess is the transistors..could they be the culprit?!
Ahem this means the caps have been doing their job for 50 long years! Only one of the capacitors has failed, please note- the blue valvo 100uF cap now measures 1uF!
