Lord Valve Speaketh:
Folks out there need to know that, when installing a grounded line
cord on old amplifiers, the line cord they purchase may use the
international standard for wire colors. It’s BROWN = HOT, BLUE =
NEUTRAL, and GREEN/YELLOW = GROUND. The US standard is BLACK =
HOT, WHITE = NEUTRAL, and GREEN = GROUND. “Crusty” and I were
talking on the phone tonight, and he happened to mention that he
had changed his Deluxe Reverb to a grounded line cord but he was
still getting zapped..but only with the ground switch in one
position. I asked him to tell me how he had wired it up, and as
soon as he mentioned that he put the GREEN wire on the fuseholder
(yow!) I knew it was bad news. It just turned out that he didn’t
know the international wire color code, and got things screwed
up. Luckily, he’s still breathin’. 😉
