    Yikes... Tubes usually don't smoke unless it took out a screen resistor or something else inside the amp. What tubes are (were) you running? If you're comfortable taking out the chassis, you can look at the connections on the back of the tube sockets. If all looks well (no blackened resistors or wires), you can try a new set of power tubes and see what happens. The good thing about tube amps, if something is smoked, it's probably an easy fix.
    At first, they'll only dislike what you say, but the more correct you start sounding the more they'll dislike you. Criss Jami

    I was out looking for backup amps today ... and I have an all day rehearsal tomorrow.


    Looks like this is the culprit
