    Amplifier parts shortages

    I'm seeing nothing online from official sources, but a lot of people on various forums are complaining about extreme long wait times on new amp purchases.

    Obviously with the pandemic there are going to be parts shortages, and I thought I'd make this thread so we could share anything we hear or find on this topic.

    So what have you heatd?

    A lot of favourites have been closed for the better part of a year. Shortage of transformers and caps (especially good quality electrolytics)

    Some values of pots too.

    That's what I've experienced personally while trying to order parts.

      I've been speaking with Hiwatt about getting a replacement Headshell for my amp and they're apparently still waiting on those.

        Shipping times on everything are up, with international being horrible. Add to that places being open and closed on and off. Then add to that Classic Tone going out of business in November which impacted lots of brands like Mesa and anything being built by BAD (Soldano, Friedman, etc etc)

          Mesa won’t be shipping any more tubes separately, as there’s a significant power tube shortage. They’re keeping everything they can for amps they’re building.

            Not amps but DiMarzio has apparently been hit by murphy's law a few times and are 6+ months behind.
