What was the fix for the first 2 failures?
Tube amps are fairly basic circuits - seems odd to suffer that many failures.
No big issues with your electrical service (power spikes/surges)?

Honestly have no clue... sent it back as it was on warranty. Now I'm gonna have take it to my tech as the warranty expired 2 months ago, an expense I can't afford right now but will have to.

Even my shitty, beat up 1993 Carvin X-100B didn't break once in the 5 years that I used it.

Hell, even my first no-name little crappy "in a kit" amp still works after 16 years.

Ok, we checked it, opened it, cleaned it...

Last time it was something wrong with the tube sockets, something was re-soldered in the fix (just checked now).

This time it was the input. For some reason the contact was just off. My dad just re-soldered it and we put it back together.

Handmade in England by people who have never soldered before?

Pathetic.

It works now, but it's being bitchy about my cables, it just won't take some.
I'd still rather go spend $100 on cables tomorrow than 300 for a re-build/fix.

The Feldspar cartoons just didn't catch on.
I've disillusioned and alienated my fan base.
I ain't so blind I can't see.
Also, re-heated Hills Bros. coffee makes your intestines roil, and testicles retreat into the body cavity.
With that retreat, you might be good for the SI cover. Go ask in the thread about it

I chucked about 15 pistachios out in the grass, scattered them pretty good.
Then the next morning, all the empty shells were on the deck.
Hahaha!
