DC5 has blown output transformer, need tech advice

Post by BobbyOrr » Sat Dec 13, 2014 2:33 pm

I just bought this used DC5, played it at home for a week, no problems, took it to a gig and when I first plugged it in, there was a crackling noise and then smoke coming out the back with a bad smell. I think it's probably the output transformer, but there is no tech in my area that I can trust, so I'll need to send it somewhere. Should I send it directly to Mesa or does anyone have a good tech they can recommend?
