my 73 silverface deluxe reverb just died!
Hey guys,my amp just stopped making sound. You know when you turn the amp on you here the noise floor out of the speakers? Yeah it doesnt even do that. I was playing for 3 hours with a bunch of different pedals doing a huge shooutout.
I know its not the preamp tubes and from what I was told the amp will still work even with the reverb, recovery reverb and tremolo tubes taken out so it cant be them. I also swapped the phase inverter 12ax7 tube with no luck. The fuse is not blown and the main transformer is getting power.
So it has 2 power tubes. is it one for each channel or are they in series? Im trying to rule them out. I tried measuring voltage on some resistor and caps in the preamp circuit and there is nothing. The power amp tubes come after the preamp section right the the problem is before the preamp sections and it affecting both.
Is it neccessary to pull the tubes to test voltages of the transformers? And how do I know what voltages to look for?
And help here? Could it be the big rectifier tube?
If one power amp is out will it cause this or is each power tube for each channel?
