i have the b-52 at112.

ive been having issues lately.
problems-
1- not loud enough to be heard over drums (not a new problem)
2- speakers makes annoying cracking noises even with nothing plugged in (thats how i know its not my cable or guitar)
3- idk how to describe this, but it sounds like its switching pickups in mid-chord (which im not doing) and sometimes sounds like the cable is only half in even when its fully it.

what could be the source of these 3 issues? and how much would that cost to fix?

There are just bad tubes sometimes. It sounds like a power tube problem. Check to see if your amp is cathode biased. If it is, plug in the new tubes and play. If not, it needs to be taken to a tech to be biased.

does anybody know if this amp is cathode biased? i just called b-52 and nobody was there so i figured id turn to UG
