    Whats up folks. Some of you guys might remember me. Anywho! My 1987 have just flat out stopped making sounds? From the other night when I was playing, and merely turned the amp off, It died overnight while attempting to start it the next morning. Light comes on, all tubes are glowing and warm to the touch, just no sound at all? tried removing and reinserting tubes, tried changing cables, checked fuses......

    What gives?

    and as a bonus question. Who does great Marshall work in Los Angeles?

    Whats up dude! Did you plug your guitar in? Ha! Do you have spare tubes, just cuz a tube is glowing doesnt mean its working. Swap out your preamps one at a time to check them, if still no good swap out your power tubes with another set. Long time, what you been up to?

    Seems like a preamp tube.
    You buy 1 new 12AX7 and swap out the preamp tubes 1 at a time. Retest the amp each time you swap one out / the new one.
    B. Plug a guitar cable between send and return (if there is an effects loop).
