TA 15 Metal Cover Tarnish

Post by 57nashlefty » Wed Aug 28, 2019 5:10 pm

Hello, I just bought a TA-15, and I really like it. The issue is the metal cover. It is pretty tarnished. I have seen these for sale, and most have similar conditions. Has anyone attempted to clean one, and what were the results? Thanks.

This seemed to happen worse on earlier amps. I remember there being a lot of discussion about it early on. Mine is fine.

There's another very recent thread on this.

Authorized Boogie said it might be related to someone attempting to clean the cover.
