A vacuum tube tester is used to test tubes. Years ago, you could walk into an electronics store like radio shack and test your tubes. I suggest you take the amp to good music shop that repairs amps. They will be able to test the tubes.

While playing through this amp I stepped on the channel changing footswitch and lost all sound from amp. all tubes and pilot light remained on but amp went silent. Disconnecting footswitch and cable f


Plug the guitar on the "power amp in" jack near the "presence" knob.
If you get sound, you have a problem on the preamp. If not, it´s probably on the power amp section.

Its a good start...

I have a peavy classic 100 2x12 1975 has a high pitch squeal coming out of amp when powered on


If this happens only when the guitar is plugged in, most likely there are two possibilities. The first, you have some issues with the electronics in the guitar OR are using an acoustic guitar witch has an extremely sensitive pickup that provides nothing but feedback. If this is happening with the guitar unplugged, there is a mountain of possibilities.

Possible that the output tubes that were replaced are drawing too much current, hence the popping sound (may be "motorboating", one common word to describe a similar sound)

This means the tubes need to be biased properly. You need to get it to someone who knows what they are doing, ie a good amp tech, not GC. The voltages here are dangerous.

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Volume Fluctuations. My amp (fender hot rod deluxe) will occasionally have volume fluctuations when I'm playing. The changes usually occur when I've moved my setup from one place...


First thing would be try another guitar with the amp. This will eliminate if it's a problem with the guitar or the amp itself. If the guitar is working properly then check all the tubes to be sure they are all seated into there slots completely. Depending on how much use they have been played it may be a good suggestion to then replace your tube's. Occationally the tubes will start loosing power, making sound fluctuate up and down or distortion sounding static in background noise. You will notice a big difference with newer tube. But remember the bias must be set correctly to match the new tubes so they won't over heat. You can check out youtube for setting the bias. Anyway this is my suggestion and I wish you good luck.

Bussing sound comes out the tube,even when it it connected correctly


Make sure you have the correct power adapter, not a substitute. Make sure your guitar is outputing enough... You LIKELY will need a guitar that has a preamp in the guitar, (not a passive pickup guitar). This device is nothing more than a small amp that drives a speaker which the sound travels up the hose. If your guitar creates a buzzing noise, then this device will do that too... Plug a set of headphones directely into your guitar to verify the sound is clean... NOTE, only one side of headphone will have guitar in it if the headphones are stereo type.

The first thing i would do is not leave it on in this way for too long. You could blow out a very expensive Transformer if its a faulty speaker. The worst thing you could do to a TUBE amp is run it without a speaker . I would test the speaker first. Just remove the wires going to it. And connect the speaker to either a car stereo or house system at low volume very low. And see what you get. if it works ? Good! Now check your guitar chord/wire. Try different ones try different guitars. If that doesn't work . Look into the input jack on the instrument input hack on the amp.. They do come loose off the board.Either get a new input jack or resolder the old one. if you only have one guitar look at the guitar output jack. Loose wiring on the guitar could cause this also. Dirty In and out put jacks could cause this. A pencil with Very fine sand paper wrapped around it will clean a dirty input/output jack. Try these things. Just remember poking around your amp is Dangerous. The electrical components hold a charge even unplugged that can kill you. No joke..

Amp Problem with my Guitar


You suspect the power switch when you should have immediately dismissed it because the ON light is on, as it should be. The fact that it does in fact produce sound at all indicated that the amp is being powered on. There is a malfunction somewhere else in the amp, most likely a bad tube. If you have access to a tube tester, then by all means, have the tubes checked. You could check your guitar and cord with another amp to make sure that they are working OK. Beyond those simple things, it's my opinion that for you to open this amp and attempt repair, you would risk further damage.

it would be much cheaper and quicker for you to take the amp to a
qualified repair shop and pay the price for a competent repair.

Cheers!!!!
