HELP...My Crate GT-50 Died!
Help...while I was playing through my Crate GT-50 (4 6V6 tubes) I noticed that the volume decreased....then the sound got real farty...then got lower untill the pilot light went out and i noticed a funny smell...not like a burning smell. I pulled the tubes out one by one and noticed a burnt smell on the base of one. I know I'll have to go into the amp but does the above symptoms sound familiar enough to anyone to give me a hint of the problem.
