Recently i bought a Peavey classic 30 used for 80 dollars without tubes... and today i went out and bought new toobs for it. I plug them in check to make sure the speaker is connected and everything... i then proceed to plug it in and let it warm up the tubes. I notice that the tubes were not glowing and am puzzled as to why no sound would come out of my amp. I'm sure i put in the tubes correctly so what could be the cause of no sound?

And this, boys and girls, is why you never buy an insanely cheaply-priced tube amp, without tubes in it to try it out

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Ehh, maybe not...

You might be able to get a tech to fix it for less than it would have costed to buy a new one...or even a functioning used one...But of coarse it really depends on what is actually wrong with it....

Could be one or more of a huge selection of possible things wrong with it, take it to someone who knows what they're doing to have a look at it.

Hmmm....

$80 - Amp
~$80 - Tubes (guessing)
~$300 - Tech fee (this is pretty standard no matter what they do)
------------------
$460

Still think it was a steal?

Back when I was a noob I fried my OT and had to take my amp to a tech - they replaced it and only charged me like $90
