After 30 years of utter reliability, my Walter Woods MI-225 is occasionally reluctant to boot up. It makes the usual popping sounds, but it will hang for many seconds before the final pop and full power. Last week at a rehearsal, to my absolute horror, it just popped and popped and would not boot. Tried it again a half hour later and it worked, thankfully. For a week and a half I've tried daily to contact Walter at his (760) 219-4122 phone number. Crickets. I leave messages daily and can't get a response. I've found an amp repair place (SF area) that says they can work on WW amps, but they would need to get the parts from Walter. Is Walter still alive??! Does anyone have any idea how I can reach him? Best amp ever. But I can't take the chance of getting to the gig and having it not boot up.
