I'm at a jam session with my buddy, and suddenly my amp got really shitty.|
I qwas playing it at home yesterday, and it sounded absolutely normal. I have a peavey Vypyr Tube 60W.

All of a sudden, around 80% of my gain just vanisghed. We're playing Maiden. Or trying to...
|I replaced the preamp tubes, and changed the batteries for my emgs, \i honestly am at a loss to why this isnt working. And the gain on the amp is maxed, under the heaviest gain channel on the amp.

why doesn't this work?!?!

Is the volume still loud but the gain is gone, or is there a lack of volume?

volume is mostly there. not 100%, but, a lot of the volume comes from gain, which explains that.

Don't be so fast to dismiss the power tubes. Tubes can and do fail. I've seen very expensive amps develop problems just a couple of weeks out of the box. If you have the old tubes, I'd recommend putting them back in.

Hmmmm, borrow some Power Choobs from someone elses to test it? It's a completely patronising question... but did you put the right choobs in?

Did this just happen today?

New is only a word, and doesn't mean anything.
