Servisol contact cleaner should sort that out - it's about £2.50 a can from Maplin.

There is only one valve in that amp. It is a 12ax7 if it hasn't been changed yet. I'd probably change it. It is probably the original one.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

My drummer has an 8080, I like to run it in stereo with my Rocker, it sounds pretty cool. I'll throw out that Death used them, because someone will soon.

how do i change it and how much does it cost?



The tube is like $15US bucks so whatever that amounts to. Also you have to remove the amp apart. Theres going to be screws on top just unscrew them unhook the speaker and reverb. Remove the amp and have a look inside and you will see it sitting there. Also this is a perfect time to clean the pots with contact cleaner. And give it a test run to see if the pots need replacing...
