    Right so I sold my beloved Peavey XXX, and I'm after getting a phone call.

    Now I've had the amp myself around 6 months, and they guy before me had it retubed around a year and a half ago with 6L6. I've never had any problems.

    So they guy rang me up, and said about 10 minutes into his practice, the amp started to break up, so he turned it off thinking it was his cab. He then plugged it into his friends cab and it wouldn't turn on. However, all the lights were turning on, all the tubes lighting up etc.

    Any ideas on what went wrong? I'm dropping it down to my tech, hopefully it will only need a new tube, I really hope it's under 50 dollars to fix as I'm broke...

    The footswitch is a notorious piece o' crap. My old one got stuck in multiple channels. Unplug a try. Could be a loose tube.
