    Tubes are dying?

    you are using 1 preamp tube. Its called the phase inverter. While technically part of the output section/circuit, it is still a preamp tube.

    Alpha vs. Bourns Potentiometers

    I like Bourns low friction for volume. Alpha/CTS/IDGAF for the tone pots since I don't use them.

    Popping and static sound as amp powers up or down old is the amp build? The caps shouldn't be bad...not to say you couldn't have gotten a faulty one. If tubes didn't solve the problem..

    Hell Freezes Over

    Yep. Hell haseth frozen over. I picked up the Headrush Gig Board. Primarily to use as an effects unit through the effects loop of my JVM. Just the effects. They sound decent enough, the MIDI allows me to change JVM channels/modes. And I can get the same functionality as I did with my Rack...

    Help, I Think I Have Dirty Power!! And Happy New Year!!

    90% of the rectifiers sold (wall warts) will all introduce noise. Most produce higher voltage than necessary and they are only half bridge rectifiers with very little ripple correction.

    Does this headstock look repairable?

    Sure it's repairable. even if it wasn't broken I fail to see where these things are $2k. Custom shop or other, they shouldn't be more than $500.
