Fafner question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Peter McFerrin, Jun 9, 2002.

  1. The input jack is a little flaky on my Fafner--I think walking around the room while plugged in has been putting stress on it. It's not a big problem right now--the signal cuts in and out at times if I make really jerky movements--but on a gig that might get kind of annoying.

    Anyhow, is the jack on a flying lead or is it mounted on the PCB? I'd like to know what I'm dealing with when I go to get it fixed.

    well, if an engineer designed it, you can count on it being stuck on the board...if a bassist designed it, it'll be on a lead and will be easy to repair...

    man, if i keep that up, i'll never get through this last year ;) good thing it's not electrical engineering i'm studying :D

    It is easy to check out, remove the screws from top cover and you'll see. I suppose it is not soldered directly to the PCB. Then again they did put the cooling fan on the side of that amp so there maybe other mishaps as well.

    I've been wondering why they put that fan on the side. Crazy backward Swedes.
