I cannot help you to the schematic...sorry
I have just this tip that perhaps might help you
Did you control all the welding points and connectors ?
As I have been told, these are often little common faillures of (older)Crate amp's

succes !

I haven't had any success from the usual sources either, Ben. I haven't received the amp yet, so I guess that's all I can do; inspect, give it a signal then poke and prod, fiddle and wiggle. It would be much nicer to do things properly with the sig gen and scope!

Cheers,

Frank

Hi Frank

You may find someone able to help on here: https://www.thefretboard.co.uk/

I am a member so if you don't want to join just to ask about the schematic I could do a post for you.

Martin
