    Hey all,
    I'm new to this forum, let me start by saying HI! I'm lurking around here because my brother in law gave me a road 440 head that he found on the curb, and Im giving it a refurbishing, its a pretty cut and dry operation, but would be smoother if I had a schematic, and I cant seem to find one online anywhere. This amp sounds great by the way, which really was a shock to me, and a blessing because our bass player has been using a ampeg 350h, which sounds lame at best. This Road amp, even in its crippled state blows the pants off of his ampeg. Just need to replace a few faders and pots and it will be crushing all that come in its path!
    Thanks in advance

    I use a 440 as my main amplifier, one of the most amazing solid-state amps I've heard. Unfortunately I can't help you with the schematic, but if you find more info please post it here, there's a small group of Road users who'd really appreciate it.
    Nice Find!

    Any day when I get to see gear schematics that I haven't seen before is a good day.

    Wow, that's a nice clean layout, even by today's standards.
