    The Aerosmith Boner 700 series 1

    This was viewed when opened after I had pm'd Lee that one of his Aerosmith amps showed notes with sticky tape on the chassis of A channel 157w and B channel 164w which is a little less then half what a working 700 puts out. Mind you this is an original first series 700. SO it would appear it was tested with only one capacitor running the whole amp??? The top blew off with sufficient pressure to push in the plate that separates the caps from the tranny and the caps are bolted through the plate LOL

    I imagine a scenario where Tyler's is screaming Back in the Saddle when this amp decided to blow a cap like a boner through a pair of Duluth Firehose pants

    I give you The Aerosmith Boner built by "Cathy"

    I just can't get the nerve to toss it out, it has a story to tell of some sort and soon to be a legend destined for the Phase Linear Museum

    Spare me from your need of emotional rescue
    "...to blow a cap like a boner through a pair of Duluth Firehose pants".

    Is that even possible? I mean we are talking Duluth here ...

    Made me laugh nonetheless.

    Good way to end the evening !

    You would not believe how close this was to a deadshort, can't believe the tech even got readings that showed operation albeit a quite bit short on horsepower. Never even took the cover off for testing?? Fuck bias right LMAO!!!! There was no spew in the chassis but this thing must have moved or shook if rackmounted when the top of the cap knocked that plate over. I feel the Earth... Move...
