        The Yamaha Power Amp That Refused To Die!

        Blog Post-The Yamaha Power Amp That Refused To Die!-Andy's Music

        In our thirty-five year history, we’ve come to know and believe in the dependability of Yamaha power amps. As that old commercial goes, “. . . it takes a licking, and keeps on ticking.” Our story is about one such amp that will make you a believer too.

        One of our frequent customers back in the 1980s, a local night club, purchased a Yamaha P2201 power amp for their house band. The club property was adjacent to a large storm drain, that would occasionally overflow after heavy rains. It was after one such storm where our story begins.

        The rain came down for days, and the storm drain overflowed into the club and surrounding properties (see picture). As with most bands, the large gear stays in the club and only the instruments are taken home. It’s accurate to assume they lost quite a bit of music gear in the “great flood”.

        The club owner called and asked us to retrieve the sound gear and make repairs as necessary. We grabbed our trusty skiff and proceeded to the club to begin our task. We paddled up to the stage (sounds weird doesn’t it?), and lifted the amp, dripping with water, mud, and debris! We thought, “no way this is ever going to work again!”

        We decided the best course of action would be to let the amp dry completely before attempting a repair. After several days of watchful waiting, we removed the covers and knobs, but we did not remove or replace any components. We cleaned, degreased and wiped down the inner parts and chassis. We re-installed the cover and knobs, plugged it in - and with great anticipation - turned it on.

        It worked! I wouldn’t believe this story either if I hadn’t witnessed it with my own eyes!

        Yours truly,

        Andy

        BOSS BR900CD Digital Recorder

        BOSS BR-900CD Recorder

        The BOSS BR900CD is the musician’s portable dream studio. Its road tough, fun to use, and it performs far beyond its weight class. This reliable all-in-one digital recorder stands out with its professional effects, realistic drum-pattern generator, vocal-correction, and Mastering Tool Kit, digital output, and internal CD burner. No matter where you are — in your home studio or on the road — all you’ll need is a BR-900CD, and you can write, record, edit, mix, master, and burn a complete polished CD anywhere, anytime.

        With the same reliable and ultra-friendly operation as BOSS’s highly popular BR-864, the BR900CD takes three big steps forward by increasing the front-panel fader count from four to eight and adding a built-in CD-RW drive and Pitch Correction to the feature set. The BR-900CD is compatible with Compact Flash cards up to 1GB capacity, which provides up to 624 minutes of record time (standard mode) in one shot. Even with all of this great new feature, the unit’s footprint remains small for ease of travel.
