      It has 1 input and it does not have the half power jack.
      It has some hum to it but no more than Its ever had.
      Ive been using a blackstar fly 3 watt amp and running line out into the subways return at practice and it sounds great. It sounds good when going straight in too just quieter.
      How long ago did you get a new board? I wonder if they are still available.

        I got the new board installed in 2002. I had had the amp since 1998.
        One input and a miniswitch ?
        Have you tried some different tubes in V1 andV2 ?
        The Subway blues is extremely dependent on V1, and you might have a lower power tube in there. When I play it at home I sometimes put a 12aY7 or 12at7 in there so I can turn up the volume more than a hair.

      Hey, just wondering if you could please help me out.
      Did you ever have a volume loss with your Subway Blues? A preamp problem i think because slaving a small combo in through the loop return it sounds normal and loud.
      Changed all the tubes out with spares, and tried brand new ones, and still no volume.
      Appreciate any insight you could share.
      Thanks.

        My subway Blues is an early model, and it suffered some breakdown in the "gooped" Dyna-Watt section.
        I had to replace the entire circuit board. A newer one might be easier to diagnose and fix on a component level.
        Does it have two inputs or one ?
        Half [power jack ?
        Those were later models and might be easier to have fixed.

        When mine was sick, it hummed badly when warmed up.

      I was going to apologoze for being right about something, but some jerk tries to troll me, and **** him.
