Fender 1000 Roc Pro Amplifier Head

I would like to know how to change the tube inside. It does not appear to have an easy access to the tube, but I know it's there (or at least should be) because this is a hybrid amp. Solid state and tube drive.
Please let me know what procedures I would have to perform that would allow me to change the tube and still have a working Amplifier when I'm done

Hey man

The tube is on the PCB internally, you will need to pull the chassis out of the sleeve to get to it. Not hard.... Do this by removing the screws that secure it in place on the outside of the sleeve. sometimes they are a little "stuck" in there sticking to the trim covering that they have been clamped up against. The tube itself will very seldom give trouble though, as it is by circuit design way underdriven with quite low cathode volts so they don't loose their edge nor fail. Putting a different quality of tube in there wont make much of a difference in tone either because of this. the tube is only used for the gain channel, so if you have clean sound but no distortion, then it may be the problem, or the large ceramic ballast resistor R116 may have dry solder joints. If you have any questions about this, happy to talk to you. A FixYa is a great reward for helping you out. Cheers

My buddy recently gave me his svt-6 pro amp head and there is barely any volume coming out of it when its cranked


Assuming you've tried other known working cables, speakers, and instruments, I'd suggest just taking it into a pro repair shop. If you start poking around inside without knowing what you're doing you risk frying the amp further or perhaps frying yourself.

I have a fender hot rod de ville. One tube is out. I have ordered a new pair, but I tried switching the tubes and the tube that was out works when I switch locations. Help anyone


Not knowing which of the tubes in the unit you are talking about we can't give you help. Usually a "pair" is used for the power output tubes like the 6L6's, but this has 12AX7's as well.

If you are talking about the 12AX7's, they have TWO sections in each tube, and depending where you swapped them, one section could be out and the unit APPEAR to work, although there would likely be some feature that did not work properly.

IF the ones you swapped are the big 6L6's and one way works and another doesn't, you have BIG problems possibly involving blown output transformer and one blown tube.

My amp breaks up too much and sounds messy. I changed the tubes and resistors and it helped a little but didn't solve the problem. Could it be my speaker?


colearthur16, Only a slight chance of problem with your speaker. You will need to prove that all stages of amplification of the audio signal from input to output are not being driven into distortion (clipping) because of a bad DC power supply rail to the low level amplifiers or the high power "final" output amp! To prove this, you will need the help of an electronics technician who has access to a variable audio signal generator (amplitude and frequency) and a cheap 5 to 20 megahertz oscilloscope to view the amplified waveforms of the amplifier stages in the Fender Amp. Remember the following statement for the rest of your life!!! "All musicians who use electronic amplification to play musicial notes through speakers should have between 4 and 8 hours of classroom instruction on how typical amplifiers (tube and solid state) operate and how to troubleshoot them when they fail to perform to rated specifications!!!"
Cole, have the Fender amplifier (not the speaker) tested by a qualified technician to prove amp is not at fault!!! 12fixlouie

Sound comes and goes on the drive channel, and there is a strange crackling on the clean channel. i dont know if its the tubes, the speaker, or electronics.


Using a common lead pencil, gently tap on the smaller tubes in the unit, listening for noises and crackling to change and the drive channel changes.

It is normal to get a slight twang when doing this from the microphonics of the tubes, however, the crackling and up and down volume points to a bad tube.

Reverb problem


I highly doubt the reverb pan is dead, there are TL072 opamps on the input and output of the Reverb pan. Check those out. You can get the schematic from fenders website here. U6A and U6B are what you are looking for.

My Fender Rumble 25 makes a terrible crackling sound when the volume is turned up over the 4 or 5 mark. I don't think the speaker is blown as the same sound comes via the headphone socket.


Here is the schematic:http://www.fender.com/support/amp_schematics/pdfs/Rumble_Bass_Schematic_-B21.pdf Check the tubes to see if one is loose in its socket. Do not attempt to repair this yourself unless you have amplifier repair experience as it is easy to get a bad or life threatening shock without the correct test gear and troubleshooting procedures.I hope this helps.

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe making popping noise


Ah yes, the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. I have seen more of these in my shop than any other amplifier!! I have even sent recomendations for design changes to Fender about this amplifier.
Sadly, your amp tech may be correct: while the amp is within working specs, you can still have an issue with a bad socket. The cheapest thing to try is to replace the preamp tube(s) you think may be causing the problem. If the problem persists, it may need to be serviced on this issue (by a different 'certified Fender tech'). In defense of the last tech you had work on this amp, these amplifiers have a brittle design and do not gig or travel well (there are a minority of these amps made that do perform). Fender tried to do too much for the price on this model: best advice is to fix it, sell it and get your tone with a more stable model made by Fender (like the new vintage re-issues). Fender, like Marshall, has for years been having problems when they get too far from thier 'working reciepe' of what made them great companies.
You likely have a socket that needs re-tensioned, or a preamp tube not behaving. If it is not these, then a tech had to dive in the house of cards that is this circuit. Sorry for the bad news on this, but it is the truth. I only take on Hot Rods that 'appear' to be fixable. I am a development engineer, build amps from scratch and fix them for the local music shops, and my success rate is a dismal 60%-ish percent on these...
Thanks,-mike
