    That's great to hear! I will have to take it somewhere where I can be loud. I really appreciate all of your help, as well as everyone else from the forum who contributed. Thank you.

    I don't know exactly what it was specifically. I didn't seen anything soldered in the wrong place. But I no longer have a voltage problem at R14. I am now getting some distortion, but at around 5 on...

    Alright. I re-touched all the solder joints on the PCB, as well as everywhere else. Then I started over with TubeDepot's testing sequence. My B+ was normal as well as my DC voltage on the bypass caps...

    I really do appreciate the help. I don't have any pads that are lifted, but I do have some that are pitted. Are these just dirty? Is there a way to fix them?

    I don't know how much you'll be able to tell from these. The more I add and remove components, the sloppier it is starting to look. I am getting close to ordering a new PCB and starting over. Or...

    I gave this a shot. It didn't make any difference. I don't think it should though since the NFB is jumpered in and out.

    I have a 5Y3 on the way. I didn't get the Sovtek because I've seen people say it keeps the B+ as high as a GZ34.

    I might try that. I have actually been trying to buy a Weber attenuator to use as a dummy load, but their web site is down.

    I have to admit, the tone was most likely set on 0. My caps are all correct values and orientation. It didn't hurt to check again though. I suppose it's possible I overheated something at some point....

    This test might have been particularly telling. Although, I have no idea how to fix it. I ran a 1khz sine wave through at 300mV as you suggested. The other channel at 0. I don't have an oscilloscope,...

    It's still really clean I think. It is 11pm and I live in an apartment, so I didn't really crank it yet. Would the lower B+ from a 5Y3 give me more gain? The cheap Jenson MOD speaker this kit came...

    Wow, I'm really sorry guys. Really sorry. There was a fundamental flaw that I overlooked in all my testing. A dim-bulb tester with a 200 Watt bulb. My heater voltage is actually 6.6, not 5.78. Now my...

    If I understand your test I am only getting 3.4V AC. I removed the bulb and all tubes other than the rectifier tube. Do I want to remove the rectifier as well? I have 123.6V at the wall.

    They are both 100 Ohm resistors. I really wanted that to be it. It would have been an easy fix. The only fuse is the main fuse on the control panel. I'm not exactly sure how to check my guitar...

    OK, I've looked at my DC voltages on the test points from the schematic that Jazz P Bass posted. I will do the all the AC test points after I can figure out how to generate a 100mVAC 1khz sine wave....

    A brand new 9V measures 9.26V. It is pretty much in line with two other voltmeters I used at work today to test the same battery.

    Sputter is a good word for it. I am using JJ 12AX7 tubes in V1 and V2. My power tubes are JJ 6V6 and the rectifier is a JJ GZ34. I know people like a 12AY7 in V1 for more headroom. I may decide to do...
