Too funny. I have an EG 30L and was looking for information about this amp. It has been in the basement for 20 years and was only purchased at Steve's Music in Toronto, in an emergency because it was cheap. It shouldn't take a manufacturer to tell you what pots to use. The value of the pots should be right on the part that needs to be replaced.

I'm pretty sure after doing some research that the EG 30B is the same amp as a Westbury W250B. It is possible, but not easily, to obtain a schematic.

you really don't have to replace the pots. In most old amps dust will get into the pots, it will make the pots sound scratchy when you turn them then it stops when there not being turned.

I'm just trying to save you a few bucks.

yea the pots on my BASS were scratchy, through research, found there is stuff you can get to clean them. One of the other suggestions was to use WD40, I did and they are like new again :)

I also have acquired the EGb bass amp and this is the first experience I've had actually reading about it. I kept coming up dry to answers.

My amp I found out is a crunchy bass amp I was

using with my LesPaul and I'll tell ya, it's gotta be one of the most awesome crunchy sounding amp I've had in a long time!

I have almost the exact same amp although no problem with it yet.

I was doing research too, and I absolutely love this amp, but with no luck. This helped me figure out around what it's worth.

My neighbor was throwing it in the garbage.

Imagine that?

What kind of old guitar do I have? Is it valuable? How old is it? Where was it made? Is it worth repairing? Advice on buying new or used guitars, accessories, etc. [Note: While I can give some general info on approximate values of types of instruments, neither I nor anyone else can do an "appraisal" without actually seeing and handling the instrument] I have almost 40 years` experience as a player and afficianado. If I don`t have an answer myself, I can often refer people to other authoritative sources.
