I just finished putting my 5e3 kit together and when I plugged it in I got a very low, almost inaudible sound from the speaker. The pilot light works so I think the problem is either at the input or the speaker jack. By the way, all 4 inputs give the same result. I checked the voltages at the power tubes and they were at 38mv each (I used a tube tester). What is the deal??? I hope I am giving enough information.  
Thanks in advance,

The same thing happened to me. I left out 1 wire. I would say, go back and double check the layout. Account for every connection. You'll find it.
