Hello.
Just changed the valves in my Laney VC50. When I power it on, nothing plugged in, it goes "Click, clickety click" like some sort of switch flicking.
Changed the output valves from 6L6's to EL34's, and I did flick the bias switch. Also swapped round some pre amp valves.

As I don't know enough do diagnose this, maybe someone here recognises the problem. (cue Cath).

Put the old tubes back in and see if the problem is still there or if it is gone.

If it is gone, your tubes (the new ones) are no good

Good point. Why didn't I think of that?

and if that does not work, take it to a tech.

A bad Wurkitzer ECC83 seems to be the case. Still some clicking, but I'd suspect I'm noticing it because I'm expecting it.

Cheers!
