Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a classic 50/50 as well and re-tubed it with JJ el84s, vintage teslas and mullard 12at7s. As long as you replaced it with EL84s, I can't imagine that the output would be increased enough to damage the OT. When I got my 6505 Combo, one of the 6L6s was bad, and it kept blowing fuses and howling like a banshee. I would think that an OT problem would result in a significant loss of output...or none at all. I've gotten DOA tubes from a few places. I would suggest swapping each tube out 1 by 1, until you find it...if that is indeed the problem...before you pay the cash to have it worked on.

Not a good sign. Something has gone wrong with the output stages of your Peavey. It is not a good idea to continue plugging it in as damage may occur to your speakers. I suggest you take it to a decent music gear repair guy for a look see and give you a quote to repair These heads, like all Peavey gear, are pretty solid and worth repair. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news like this, good luck

A few things can cause it. Bad ground\bad power supply filter capacitor\bad low level op amp IC. You most likely have a bad power supply or trouble at your input jack. Good luck!

You might have a ground problem. Does it do it in different outlets or when you take it to someone else's house? One easy solution to ground problems can be running a three prong to two prong adapter on the power cable. Give that a try and see if it helps.

SOURCE: Static Noise from guitar amp.
I take it you have made sure that both the cable to the distortion box from the guitar and the cable to the amp are both good. From the description you give, it sounds like there is no signal getting to the pedal. If the cable is good, then the next likely suspect would be the input jack on the fuzz box. Try wiggling it a little with the guitar cable in place to see if it is loose. Some input jacks are unbelievably cheap and flimsy. A crackling sound (static like) is almost always a bad connection. If it was the output jack, I would think that the guitar signal would come through a least a little bit, but you might want to try wiggling that one, too, if the input jack isn't the culprit.
Another possibility to check is the battery, but this doesn't seem as likely. Some effects units devour batteries, especially units that use 9V batteries. I have a multi effect pedal that kills a 9V in about an hour.
