    Hello,
    How are y'all? Hopefully one of you can point me in the right direction. I have an ancient G-K 200RCB. It's been with me for decades, and I have used it in many situations over the years. Didn't even buy it, it just sorta found me and stuck around long, long ago. Anyway, the fuse blew awhile back, and now the fuse holder or cap has gone missing. Easy, no problem, I thought, but I can't seem to find a cap anywhere, and I don't know how to be sure I'm getting the right fuse...sites I've looked at aren't clear to me, and I don't know much about these things. The fuse is a 3A 125V 1/4 x 1 1/4 SLB. I have found the parts numbers in the manual. Fuse: 091-0003-0, and Holder: 094-0013-0. Gallien-Krueger itself no longer carries these. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you very much! I really like this amp for a lot of reasons, and I'd hate to just junk it. Cheers!

    You need to replace the entire fuse holder. Parts Express, MCM etc should be able to supply a suitable part.

    You will also need to discover WHY it was blowing fuses, I suspect that this might be more difficult than the fuseholder itself.

    Thanks...I'll have it checked out. It's been going strong since the mid-90s at least (it wasn't new when I got it), and I was playing quite a bit louder than normal when it blew, so hopefully it was 'just time'...

    Fuses don't blow when playing louder, and fuses don't blow because it was just time.

    Ok...yep, I might have messed it up! Why do they blow?
    Thanks!
