ok..my tourmaster is about to go on to power transformer #3...and this is on a amp that doesn't get used regularly either...I know it's the transformer taking a dump because I have the exact same symptoms as the 2 others that croaked. it is ok when 1st turned on but as soon as it gets hot,pilot light dims (doesn't go out,just dims) than the sound goes out (can hear it barely out of speakers).put it on standby for 5 -10 min.flip it back off,full power than as you play it sound cracks/lowers till barely nothing....I think I will be passing on another transformer and throwing it into the junk pile or if I do bite for a transformer maybe a mercury but the mercury unit isn't cheap either...
when I get a chance I will put it on the bench just to confirm,but from the symptoms and the learning experience from power transformer 1,safe to assume I am right....
