Looking for suggestions on what to do with this amp.  
It is the EL84 version. After trying a lot of the little things that I know should make an amp sound better, it still sounds bad. It's not the tubes, speaker or bias. The plate voltage seems a little high >405V. If that's not it, maybe it's the output transformer that makes it sound bad. I just can't seem to get any tone that I like out of this thing. Any ideas, help, suggestions, etc?
