I bought one of these a quite few years ago, lost it in a house fire, bought another, and now they seem to be out of production.. No preamps, nowhere.. Smile

I do that... and I never intended to, just noticed one day I was doin ...

I did that on one of my P/Ps about a year ago, same symptoms. It was a nasty job once I got it apart, lots of black, tar-like gunk. But other than the mess, I'd say it's a rather trivial job compared ...
