Hi all, I have this problem with my little Kustom V5.

I tried to changer the power valve to a JJ EL84, but when I do the amp breaks really bad. I sent the valve back thinking it was faulty, got 2 more (this time low plate voltage) still no luck. Funny thing is that the tone control really effects the way the valve breaks up.

Can anyone please advise? Here's a little clip showing what's happening...

OK looks like I cant post the link to the video I uploaded showing the fault.

So if you want to see it just look for KUSTOM V5 EL84 PROBLEM on you tube

Just post the address without URL tags, I think new members need a couple posts before they can link.
