    Most amplifiers dont, you have to be damn luck to get one that does and does not advertise it as being switchable.

    Iīm assuming a tube amp??

    In that case: take it to a tech and be prepared to lay down a 3 digit sum... this is by far not the smallest mod you can do .. the entire power transformer has to be replaced along with a few other tweaks that need to be done to accomodate for the different line frequency and such...

    need to ditch the Tranny!

    So here's the d.o.-

    My amp came with a 220 volt plug like they use in Europe. I use a step-down transformer to convert it to 110 volts.

    Now I know this isn't ideal for powering guitar amplifiers. So what I want is a clue as to how to convert the plug, amp, cable, whatever; to 110 volts (like everything else here).

    Anyone who knows how to do this please share, I'm tired of the stupid tranny.
Working...
