I got tired of the shocks.... So I did the conversion. No more shocks, and less noise to boot.

In case any rookies would like to see a "How To" video, you can watch mine. I was in "learn as you go" mode.

New member, long time lurker here.
I wanted to say thanks for the videos on the K200. They were fun and informative. Now I know what to expect when I open mine up.
I've had a K250 for a few years now, and I got it with a 3 prong already added, so I never had to do this.
I've just acquired a K200-A1 head and 2x15 cab...it looks to be an unmolested example of these amps, including a 2 pronged cord.
Nice work!

Alright...even though my amp is a little older than the one in the video, and looks a little different inside cosmetically, everything went smoothly for me. I ordered a 3 prong vacuum cleaner replacement cord from amazon. It was 50 feet long...key word, "was". I was able to use the original strain relief grommet thing...barely. The cord looks much like the original, but slightly thicker to accommodate the added conductor wire. It seems to have quieted things down a bit during power up. I'm a happy camper....thanks again.
I'd post pictures, but I'm a noob, and probably can't.
I'll try the link to the power cord I used...

Fail.

Looks like I'm going to be making a light duty 30ish foot black extension cord soon.
