Can I use this fuse in my Bottlehead amp kits
« on: October 13, 2021, 05:44:09 AM »
Hi,

Can I use Slow-Blow fuses on my Bottlehead amps (S3X and C2A). I was looking to put this one:: "Littelfuse 0285002.HXP" instead of the stock fuses it came with.

Rgds,
Atul

I'm not pursuing an expensive hobby, I'm buying medical equipment to work on my wellbeing.
Research has shown that blood flows more easily when music is played. It can also reduce heart rate, lower blood pressure, decrease cortisol (stress hormone) levels and increase serotonin and endorphin levels in the blood. It elevates mood. Studies also suggest it can ease pain, enhance aerobic exercise, and improve cognition and memory.
