Airline Model 62-9022a Guitar Amp

Post by tuberadiogeek on Sat Sep 10, 2016 4:37 pm

I was able to get this little practice amp for 5.00 yesterday. I went to get it today and started taking it apart so I could at least bypass the fuse holder, since the fuse and cap are missing. Well I pulled the two screws on the outside and the two inside, but the chassis does not want to come down. I was hoping to be able to power it up today on my Dim Bulb Tester, so I will know If I have to buy anything besides the filter caps and a new fuse holder. It would be great if someone could help me figure out how to drop the chassis. Thanks.

Never mind, I just had to remove more screws. All I have to replace are the filter caps and put a fuse and fuse cap in it and it's done. It has all ceramic disk caps in it.

Use the middle link of the three from the web hosting window. that will put the thimbnail as opposed to the link on your thread.  Good luck on the amp!

Now that I've had this awhile, I've been using it occasionally for music from my phone and it's a great sounding amp. Tonight I hooked an Airline record player into it that I saved from a console that was being stripped. It sounded OK I had it in the input on the outside, as my phone always goes in the one on the inside. I am going to be ordering parts to restore it in February and while I had it apart, I am curious if it would benefit me to change the capacitors on the inputs from the Ceramic disc to film or another type? I have some film capacitors on hand that I bought for a radio that isn't going to be restored anytime soon. I really never messed with capacitors on inputs but I figured if I could easily modify it to give the record player sound better. I have no idea of the size of capacitors on the inputs but each one has like 2 small ceramic disc ones.
