    So I realize today that there is a significant volume loss when I plug into the top boost channel of my Vox AC15 hardwired amp. It gets especially worse when switched to Master Volume mode. Could this be something as simple as a bad tube? Unfortunately I don’t have any extra tubes laying around so I can’t swap and test. All the tubes light up from behind when on.


    I guess really the question is what tubes are in play when plugged into the TB channel with the MV mode on?

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

    If the amp is OK on the normal channel and no change, change V1 to rule it. Best of luck.

    Never mind guys. I was able to locate another ecc83. Turns out it was just a bad v2 preamp tube. I love this amp!
