I wasn't planning on doing this on your amp cause I thought you were good

with the BL63.

But I can do this in your amp no problem Just add a voltage quadrupler and a three position switch.

please do Glenn. Those lonely RCA and Ken Rad 1633 finally have a new home other than a old box in the closet. I think on the power tube I will keep just the 6336 since they are superior to any 6as7.

Dont forget the Brimer 13D1 is another 25SN7

Well, there is silence in my listening area for now.  I decided I was sick of fixing cabinets and windows and painting walls and decided to listen to some music last night only to discover my OTL amp somehow got damaged during the move.  It got to ride on the front seat of the car and never got bumped so I'm not sure how this happened, but she's out of commission now.  frown.gif

To frame the situation......  It's not physical damage but a malfunction of some kind.  With the volume on steps 1-5 only the left channel works with the right channel dead.  Once you click the volume pot to step 6 it gets interesting, the left channel goes silent and the right channel comes on in its place....... completely unattenuated (at maximum volume).  I have tried the usual trouble shooting steps such as trying different tubes.

 

Logically it would seem to be that the volume pot has mysteriously gone bad, but I will wait for the expert himself to weigh in with his thoughts.

Perhaps, a loose connection... whatever this challenge turns out to be, it's nice to see you at once in a new space (living) and this space (visiting).

They will work on the 12 volt setting.

The only person that has a amp that can do this right now with a switch

is rosgr63.

I used to make adapters to do 12 volt and 25 volt thbes.

Had the volume control got bumped and pushed the shaft back in the switch a little??

Can You take the bottom off the amp and look at the switch and see if a ground wire came off

or something??  Then let me know what you see.

And when you drop the bottom, take a pix for Glenn's remote diagnosis...

SO means you should film it really  rolleyes.gif

Seriously though, good luck with getting it fixed. I know how horrible it can be not knowing what is wrong.

Film? I'm looking :thumb: for a romantic ending. One where, it is a simple fix and the owner falls in love... all over again.thumbsup.gif

I will pull the bottom plate and take a look at the pot tonight after work. I'm sure it is probably something simple. Still I'm confused I handled the amp like a newborn baby during the move, as I do with my most prized possessions. Maybe its just a weird coincidence and that valab stepped pot i asked to have put in was going bad anyway.
