I need me a new preamp tube. I tap it with the pencil, and I can hear it clearly through the speaker. There is a constant tremolo effect on my E-string. I'm figuiring I should replace it, correct?

And, can I do it myself?


BTW, read the sticky again, said to take it to a pro for the power amp tubes, but what about the pre-amp?

Make sure it's unplugged, wrap it in a cloth of some kind, and pull up.



Don't touch the other tubes.

Pull up as in towards the amp or away from the amp?

all preamp tubes are heavily microphonic. if you tap it with a pencil, it WILL make a thru the speaker. Poweramps tubes. less so.

Epi VJ. I noticed it just a few days ago, and I just got new pups. I'm going to go see if the problem is still there on my other guitar.

Because when I was younger I would wrap dollar bills around my wang while masturbating to get that extra dirty feeling.

Even though I quit doing it, it still turns me on when I see money.
