Slow blow fuses look like a foil filament.  The slowblow are thicker and look like a wire wound around wire.

Thanks Scott!!

So, marginal power source with higher than normal demand and things start going into overload.

Fortunately, the fuses let go before damage occurred.  A motor under the right power conditions can to into melt-down.  I would venture to guess a switching/sensing power supply could do much the same.

Thanks for the info Steve.

200' of extension cord and several loud amps and speakers were to blame.

Only show Debbie and I did together some big idiot (me) left the generator in economy mode (Honda Inverter Model).  The Powersoft amps just took it with stride but we had a lot more in reserve according to Debbie.  That was one of the last shows that I did before the Pandemic shut us down.  St. Pat's day I had flown straight from a cruise gig up to North Carolina to help Debbie and check out the new Danley's.  The let us role, and by the last set the fire department was there to observe our curfew.  I believe we were the last show in town. 


Coming home with all the airport shops closed, Club was still open but there was a 4 seat buffer square.  I didn't fly for 2 years after that either.
