    Anyone know where I can find a replacement cord for my 1986 GK combo. I think it is the bodel RB200. I put it in storage for a few years. I retrieved the amp but cannot find the cord. The receptacle on the amp reads 3A 125V 60Hz. Any idea where I can find a replacement cord without having to go to GK and spend a fortune? Thanks!

    If the receptacle on the back of the amp is just like the one on the back of your computer, you can get one anywhere that sells computer equipment...or see if your local music store or used gear store have any that they'll give you or sell cheap.

    If it's different than that, you'll have to ask GK or post a picture here and we'll see what we can do...

    That or PM Daniel Elliot (he works for G-K) and ask for help.

    I actually have called upon G-K a few times and have had excellent, excellent service...

    Well I have a PC power cord, but the specs are different. They say 10A 125V and something else. Don't know if this would be compatible or if I would kill all power in Manhattan. Can I use this cord? The female end doesn't fit as tightly as the original did but it does fit.

    Sorry to ask such a dumb question but I know nothing about amps or electronics.
