Got a problem (hopefully a simple one) that ive been trying to figure out.
Hopefully this is relevant to this forum. Apologies in advance if not.
Relocating from Australia to America in a few weeks. Was wondering what i can do in relation to power supply to run my amps over there.
I have an old 1960’s 40w amp head (Playmaster 116). Its a point to point hand build job. My other amps all have universal voltage dials (resistors) built in so they will be ok. The only real options i can see for the Playmaster is to buy an Inverter to raise the voltage from 110v to 240v. Or a nasty idea of changing the Power transformer (prefer to leave it orig)
Will the differing supply frequency (Aus 50Hz – U.S 60Hz) hurt the amp?
How many watts will a 40W amp draw (40w?!)
If i buy an inverter, how big should i go? (higher VA ratings get pretty bulky fast!)
Im sure some of you guys have played in different countrys, dragging your fav bit of gear with you. Ive been looking through the old forums but havnt had much luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
