I just went to turn on my XXX, and not a sound came out of it. not even feedback. i checked cables, that wasn't the problem. So i looked in the back at the tubes, and low & behold, the power tubes weren't glowing.

Neither the PT's or the PI tube were glowing. But the preamp tubes were.

So i though maybe the PI tube went up and that's causing the PT's to not glow? no.

i swapped the PI tube with the V4 tube and still, the PI spot and PT's will not glow.


Is it the Powertubes? or .... =[

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

but is it still a possibility that the PT's are gone??

also possible that the PCB trace w/ the heaters got fried, hence no glow.

Take it to a tech...

I rarely turn the volume on this thing past 4, and i ALWAYS take care when turning on/off, so i'm not 'straining' the tubes...



this sucks. How much would a tech charge to look at it?

your local small store is the best place to take your broken gear and sell stuff
and GC is the best place to try out stuff

and i checked with my local place and the tech is away in Florida, and the manager said it could be a cold solder joint... or some other things, and i have to pay $48 up front + cost of parts n' labor
