sheesh Michael, get a grip!

Of course there is a warranty on the echoplex, and if you worry about such
things don't like DIY maintenance, you can call Gibson Customer Service and
they will happily provide you the name of the factory authorized warranty
service center near you. They've got places contracted all over the world
for this stuff. You can send your echoplex there if that helps you sleep at

But ya know, some people are happy to replace their own oil and spark
plugs, and don't need the dealer when they're a quart low! If you don't
want to be one of those self-sufficient types, suit yourself. But there are
lot's of people who like to be able to manage these things themselves,
that's why we share tech info on lists like this. Why should a simple
two-minute job be a big secret that you have to pay somebody else to take
care of? There's lots of people on this list who know their way around a
screw driver, that's who these tech details are for.

Re-setting this dc offset pot on the echoplex is a heck of a lot easier
(and safer) than say, re-biasing a tube amp or something. It's not likely
to ever be necessary for most people, but you never know. Things get bumped
around, parts change characteristics with age. Doesn't hurt to give it a
tune up every now and then.

for the bazillionth and one time, there's no new and improved echoplex
coming out! Same hardware is being made, the production is just being
restarted in a new facility where they are makeing sure everything is being
done properly, with high-quality workmanship. gotta love those brittish
engineers. ;-)

I think Matthias will do that one with his friends down in Brazil, whenever
somebody comes up with a video budget. Maybe he'll include some nice scenes
of Carnival and his new place in Mata! :-)
