Hi, i have had a mini recto for about 2 years now, was a great amp, but ive been lazy and i think the tubes are getting old so its sounding a bit nasty, anyway, im having a problem with it where there is no sound on 12w mode on either channel, but it works on 25w mode.

I was about to take it back for warranty repair but then i thought id better check if this can be caused by a single dead tube? If thats the case, then I'll just re-tube it myself instead of waiting months for a shop to tell me it needs a retube and charing me hundreds of dollars.

Thanks for any advice

My opinion is that it is not tube related and I also don't think you should have to be retubing it this soon but I suppose that is possible. You shouldn't have to worry about a nasty sounding Mesa 2 years after you bought it. I'd exercise your warranty.

Buy new tubes. If it doesn't fix anything you have spares.

I don't think it is your problem but if you wait to buy new tubes you won't have good spares.

See, it's important that people clarify when they say "metal", because I pretty much always assume they are a Cannibal Corpse fanboi.

+311 first check to make sure it is valid first.

but warranty is what you should do.
