1 mrock 3 years ago I recapped my bassman,and before powering it up I want to put it through a light bulb current limiter in case something is not right. I use a 240v to 120v step down transformer for the bassman. When I use the light bulb limiter with my 240v amp (no step down needed) It works fine. (I connect the amp to the bulb limiter and turn on the main switch. The limiter glows slightly. I Switch the amp from standby to ON. The limiter will flash a little then return to a dull glow. I set the switch to ‘full’ and the light bulb turns off. No problem.) The problem I have is when I plug in the step down transformer into it. The light bulb comes on straight away. Then if I set the switch to ‘full’, it blows a fuse. Is this because the step down,is drawing more current than the fuse on the limiter? The limiters fuse is 1.5amps.The step down say 5a. I really don’t want to power up the newly caped amp without precautions… Any advice? Thanks.
