Default WAD 300b kaput!

Following an earlier thread, the 300B's condition has worsened.

Colin Wonfor (IncaTech) came round recently and noted loss of bass on left channel. I had a look inside and a buzz appeared on the right (referred to in the other thread). Now there is nothing from either channel! I have a number of options:

1. give it away (or sell it for parts only) to someone who knows what they are doing!
2. strip it back and rebuild from scratch, with no guarantee that I am not putting faulty parts back together
3. pay yet more (this thing has cost me an arm and a leg) to have someone fix it (I was told today by a professional friend of a friend that it will cost at least £200 to fix - details to follow)
4. drive it to someone on this forum who would like to play around with it, and agree a price for repair or sale once the full scale of the problem is known
5. drop it down the front steps or pour a cup of tea on it and claim the insurance (red-faced smiley)

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Adrian

I have a couple of sets of 300B valves that I can take to Johnís, they still have some life left in them and would be ideal for test purposes.

Hi Nigel

that's very kind of you - thanks. I think mine are ok, but it is worth checking. Can I pick up en route to save you the bother? I will be coming from London
