I was playing my roadster this morning and the sound suddenly cut out, it's barely audible. Any ideas what the problem is?

Power tubes dead? Blown fuse (if it won't come on)? If your guitar has active pickups, perhaps dead battery?

powertubes could be dead, i didn't change those when i replaced my tubes because they are supposed to last longer. It will come on but it's barely audible.

The other day the volume was acting up and getting really quiet and then really loud. Still sound like the powertubes?

I just spent like $150 retubing the thing like 7-8 months ago, I don't even crank the thing much at all though.

Yeah if you've suffered a gain and volume drop, it's the power valve - happened to me just over a week ago.

So now I know when it's volume and gain drop it's my powertubes..

What will happen if my preamps or my rectifier tubes fail?

if your pre-amp rubes crap out your gain will drop.


Thought that was my powertubes, or will both make gain drop? Or is powertubes just volume drop
