    If pin 7 has zero volts with no tube and +2v with a tube, then that sounds like a bad tube to me.

    And as glebert said, a leaky cap in the tone stack could put +2v there.

    NO lack of function. As was explained, the sliders are there to vary a control voltage. They are all wired across the +5 supply, and the wiper makes a control voltage that varies from 0 to +5v. ...

    We had a server crash a few years back and many files were lost. The titles remain but they contain a 1x1 pixel image.

    PP1045SB at Digikey comes up with the EWA number but for me lists it as non-stocked.

    But at least it identifies EWA as a Panasonic number series.

    It is what the 5150 is an example OF that matters here. That is a cathode follower, so there is close to B+ voltage in the circuit at the cathode. Other amps are not driving the FX send with a CF....

    I have great respect for Merlin, but Since the 5150 came out I have never seen a voltage spike problem on the FX send. That 100k to ground at the output keeps teh cap from sending charging currents...

    The fact you can grab it and it stops tells me we have acoustic feedback. SO our job is to keep the acoustic energy our of the pan. Thus covers and bags, and indirectly my stick on foam strip.

    When it feeds back, reach around the pan and just grasp it firmly. Does that stop it? I am looking to see if it is acoustic in nature. I can't imagine what else.

    You said a MOD reverb did not feed back? But the original does? That suggests to me the problem is the pan, not the amp.

    On the other hand, many times "goo coming out" in an amp is just glue used to hold larger parts steady.

    It is unlikely the exact same thing is wrong with both amps. We just start on yours and troubleshoot to find the source of the problem. I suggest you start a new thread for your amp though.

    A loose connection or broken solder joint. Look VERY closely at the solder on the pins of the power tubes. I bet you see some cracks.
