Im back! New JTM 45 build!

Post by jbzoso2002 » Sun Apr 29, 2018 2:58 pm

After 8 or 9 years Im building my 7th amp, a JTM45.

I have been enjoying a Boss Katana for about a year after selling
my last tube amp for home purchase funds.

Because stuff I still have and stuff a buddy gave me it will be
a bit cheaper this time.

Question:

I have a brand new F&T 32/32 can cap that has been sitting
for about 9 years but never used, can I just hook it up like
usual or could there be a problem??

Congrats, the cap will need a reform once you have finished the build.
