My xxx is getting a nasty farting out blown speaker distortion on the clean channel at any volume whenever low notes are played. Things I've tried new pre tubes all spots,running only power amp no prob there diff guitar chord etc still no luck. Any ideas?

Yeah the clean is the only channel that's giving me this issue. I've checked for microphonics swapped pre tubes all with the same outcome.

Did some more messing about the distortion decays as the note dies and crunch/ultra seem to be ok. Still no luck. Bad solder joint maybe?

Maybe, but I'm not sure. Maybe Cathbard or someone with better knowledge can help you better
have you tried cleaning the pots?

may be your chanel switching is messed up and t's stuck between the crunch and the clean channel

Not enough distortion for that^. I've got it open touching up solder joints etc don't see any bad components took some voltage readings everything seems as should be. I'm stumped.
