Well my amp went silent just now... well almost- if I turn the volume up to 8+ I can her sound and a very distorted one at that on the clean channel- I assume I have a tube that went bad- I have the originals still in there... I looked at the fuses and they looked fine- I assume if they were bad it would not turn or hear sound... Soooo I'm going tube shopping. I tried to do a search for "Marty Strat" - I know he's been referenced a lot here for a tube source. Does he have a website? Open to recommendations all! FWIW I only use the clean channel and get my distortion from my pedals- mainly beacuse I cannot turn up loud at home- but was just getting ready to bring it to my shop where I just bought a 4x12 Marshall cab and was going to try out the gain channels loud- and now this happens... Would happen eventually so not a big deal- but I'd like to hear some suggestions if you don't mind. I have been busy and a little out of the loop/thread for several months. Thanks in advance all!! From what I remember when I played the gain channels they were pretty hissy with the stock setup I had- if that makes any difference. Using pedals on clean stays very quiet but still delivers a great distorted sound.
