House fire and related smoke damage
I need to ask anyone who has gone through a house fire before.
A month ago, half of our house went up in flames. Thanks to the quick fire department, the fire damage was limited to one side of the house.
My Lakeland, OLP, Alvarez acoustic, keyboard, etc., were all exposed to smoke, water/moisture and cold. Those are history..
More importantly, my Behiringer VBass Pro, Crown power amp, compressor and power supply were also subjected to the smoke and possibly some moisture. And definately the cold.
Anybody had experience with electronic equipment exposed to smoke from a house fire?
Should I just toss it (it got claimed under insurance)? Or do you think I should give it a shot and see what happens?
I hate to try it at a gig and have it fry out.
Any thoughts or similar experiences would be very welcome.
And before anyone asks, all family members are fine. We lost our beloved cats, but they had a great home and a long run. RIP Jiggs and Dudley :-)
