Mornin' Dave and the list.
That is odd. I pulled the two fuses in my amp and checked them. I too have 
replaced the glass ones with gray/white (250v-15a,) ceramics from the nearest 
source (RS).  Thinking about it,  my amp has not popped any since then.  
Without consulting to the manual, are the glass/wire wound ones quick-blow and 
the ceramics slow-blow?  Anyone else chime in please on a seemingly inane 
3's and such,
