Fender Amp Mods
Cool Runnings 240v Conversion – suitable for most Fender Amps made for the EU market, since 1990s, e.g. Hot Rods, Blues Deluxe, Deville, Blues Junior, Supersonic etc. Most Fender amps sold in the UK were manufactured for the EU market and have been set to run at 230v (there is usually a small oval 230v sticker on the rear of the amp. However, since most people in the UK actually receive 240v from their supplier. The problem with is is that your amp will be running a little hotter than it should. This mod will ensure maximum valve life and reduced heat damage to the amp’s PCB. Cost £15
