Sounds like you have been very unlucky. I'm still drooling over the Omega by the way.
Oh no Matt, that's really bad. I'll do you a favor and take it off your hands for 10 bucks.
Some people are having the same problem with the Crack. According to Doc they had some bad transistors from a supplier. I assume you have Speedball, because that is where the problem is. Go to the Bottlehead Crack forum for info. My replacement transistors arrived from Bottlehead today.
is there supposed to be buzzing/humming at low levels with my crack/speedball?
If not what could be the problems. I had this with other amps and know its common but its a little bit louder on the crack/speedball.
I am thinking its the kind of tube I am using "RCA 6AS7G JAN Black Plates". The stock 6080 did this even worse.
Yeah, I've had NO LUCK with 5998's. Admittedly, I have been lucky with Omegas.
Sure. Just hit my pp account and wait by the mailbox.
Thanks. I have my fingers crossed. The 5998 is getting harder and harder to acquire and accordingly more expensive.
I just ordered quickie with upgrade ..can't wait
