But... No sound -- none what so ever, not even a hum. Any suggestions/tips of where to even start sorting this out? Is there a logical order of things I should check to begin with?
Hi. My problem is similar to this, but it's a 5 watt Champ clone (with a Tubedepot PCB) and I DO hear hum/static. I have power, lights, lit tubes, and the volume increases as I turn it up. But there is no guitar sound at all. It's as if the amp has nothing plugged into it.
I've double and triple checked my wiring, the input and speaker jacks, and I can't find what's wrong.
What should I check next? Does it sound like an OT issue?
