anybody have a schematic for a tourmaster head?..i did manage to find one but with no values (useless).I really don't want to spend $$$ on something I can fix myself (I have mechanical/electrical knowledge and know ohm's law) but can not find a schematic..
UPDATE:well I managed to get a schematic with values no thanks to egnater and fixed the head myself.after emailing egnater and getting no response after a few weeks,it is clear that egnater could give 2 shits about customer service and as far as keeping schematics "locked down" could possibly be in violation of the "freedom of information" act (only exemption I could maybe stomach would be exemption #4,which is "trade secrets" but these amps are so undependable who the hell would want to copy it)…..anyway amp head is fixed....will never use it nor can I sell it to anyone due to its unreliability.that just wouldn't be fair...….to anyone who still owns/uses one of these bricks.i wish you luck if it ever goes down (which it will) because if you reach out to egnater you will have a better chance of getting in touch with jimmy Hoffa......

what went wrong with it?

Yep, they have some control issues for sure...that output tranny first version was one of the issues, mine crapped out and they sent me a new tranny as it was still under warranty which i installed myself.

the reverb quit working on mine, i replaced (with a LOT of hassle getting one from nate at egnater) the reverb tranny and it quit working again

now channel four quit working like...2 years ago. i put the amp in the corner and havent even looked at it since..its a shame..the design is killer, the tones are too. it makes me sick, as i remember the exact day i traded for it.

The shoddy parts and workmanship from that factory are sub par. i cant imagine bruce is happy with this.
I dont even play mine anymore...and i traded a killer amp for it...which i'd love to have back.

I'd bet i wouldnt even be able to sell my combo for $500.

caps...as far as egnater being happy/not happy...could care less.during my research for schematics I found out how many unhappy people there are out there with the amps period.read about one poor guy who couldn't get 1 good one straight out of the box..the guy had to go through 5 brand new ones to finally get one that worked and that one blew up 7 months later.he also ended up on "pay no mind" by egnater inc. trying to get it fixed and just ended up using it for a bookend.
don't get me wrong,anything electronic and electronics in general can have issues but the support,lack of info released to the general public is a BIG issue..
