One can be drying while you're getting the other one wet?
Put a beer on it.
Seriously, do it like @Mr. Lumbergh advised(alcohol and drying). Those amps are way more rigid than you believe.
Some people wash those PCBs in the dishwasher to clean them. I would not do it but for some it seems to work.
No need for that with your amp.
Just don´t turn it on before it completely dried (that can take a few weeks).
Doing it the lumbergh-way and let the components dry for a few days (fans are a good idea).
If you don´t feel comfortable doing that - there is no other way - take it to a tech and expect a big receipt. It takes time and hours to work on that.
All the best,
Vox night (t)rain.
Just in case of natural disasters!
HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA no kidding!
Just to let you guys know, I dropped it today at the Tech. There's hope!
Put it in rice.
Sorry, to soon I guess.
Fingers crossed for your amp !
Trust my, it crossed my mind hahahahaha
Hahah nah it was like funny!
Just to let you guys know, Night (T) rain made it. I picked it up from the tech today, he told me he found some water evidence on one of the boards, so he cleaned it up, checked on the tubes and transformer, everything was nice including that gorgeous greenback (love it ).
I plugged it in, ran a few chords in both channels, including that eq bypass mode named bright, everything was ringing as new.
Thanks everyone, @rolandson and @Triple Jim for saving my butt from getting shocked by the caps HAHAHAHAA
Rock on Fellas!
Rice is hygroscopic and is commonly used to dry phones... maybe give that a shot.
I'm glad to hear that your amp is doing well.
remember that saying..."the customer is always right"?
well, we found out that the customer is, in fact, not always right.
same thing goes with "the show must go on"
well, not if rain is going to ruin my expensive gear....to hell with that.
why didnt you cover it up or move it once you knew it was going to start raining?
im not trying to gripe at you after the fact, i just dont understand why you didnt do something before it got wet.
