Vintage Epiphone Electar Zephyr amp

Recommended Posts

I'm brand new to this forum. Can someone assist me to know about a source for either schematics or reliable repair services on this guitar amp, dating from the 1950s? Maple-y veneer, 12 inch field cone speaker... Hopefully someone can help save a great amp.

Does this look like your amp:

?

 

If not, you may want to look through the schematics on this page:

Gibson was notorious for changing the schematic for a particular amp from year to year. They also made a few amps re-badged under the Epiphone brand. Try to find the closest schematic using your particular tube set.

 

Finally if all else fails, download the Gibson Master Service Manual from this page:

It has a lot of oddball vintage Gibson schematics. Maybe there'll be one close to your amp. The downside is that it is 177megs. O:)
