Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My guitar player noted a volume decrease in his VK and then the pilot light went out, amp is now dead silent
Thx for any help guys!!
MOst probable, is that an output tube went west(decrease in vol), and in turn popped the fuse(pilotlight went out). It is always a decent first bet that this is what has happened. You get generally 6 months out of a set out output tubes if you use the amp often, and at gig levels every week. I would first check and replace the fuse, and then the output tubes. GT 6L6GE are factory for that amp, and always a fair bet to use the same to replace them. If you cant extend to the budget for the GT's, then Russian made (Sovtek) Electro Harmonix make a decent quality tube that sound good in guitar amps. . Always replace them as a pair, and buy them gain matched. Get the Grove Tubes from a music store, and the Electro Harmonix from an amp repair specialist. Happy to answer any question you may have about the problem. Cheers. A FixYa rating is a great reward for my assistance to you.
