Hello there! I am an owner of a beautiful K150 combo.
I live in Argentina and here electricity is 220volts.
I have to buy a transformer to 110 volts. Now, the question is: output of the combo??? Ampers of the transformator??? Wattage of the transformator???

These amps have a 3 amp fuse and back then in 1971 the schematic called for 115 volts from the wall outlet.

This means that the amp will be pulling 345 watts @ 115 vac when it's fuse blows.

What you need is a step down transformer that can provide 345 watts or even a little bit more as it will not cause any harm, be allow the step down Transformer to run cooler and last longer.

I would suggest something rated for between 550 and 600 VA like a Triad model N -7MG.
