RK II issue?

Post by jjliver » Mon Nov 03, 2008 10:49 pm

So, I was playing at a low volume on channel 4 2xEL34 and 4x6L6 and it sounded like I lost half the power (lost volume and punch). Turned the amp off for a bit and now I'm not sure my ears are playing tricks on me and I imagined it. When I turned on amp it was making a barely audible hissing, white noise, kind of crackling sound. Any one know what could cause all this? Just bought amp last week.

A tube being blown out?

power tube dying on you...or, could something have bumped the cabinet selector for the channel you are on? if it gets bumped to "A&B" and you're only using A, it'll lose a bunch of volume (thanks to the shorting plug in B)
