Hey y'all. I'm 17 and i'm really fairly new to playing electirc guitar with nicer legit gear and I blew my first tube! I'm playin a hot rod deluxe with two 6l groove tubes. It makes a really squashed compressed tone that crackles slightly when i play through and one of the tubes isn't lighting up. In the future....how do i prevent this from happening/what causes this? Thanks guys. This is where i come to learn things about things!
