I posted this at another forum, but I expect it will get a lot more traffic here. I'll start by saying I've had at least 10 tube amps over the years, some vintage-y, some new-y. I guess you could say I'm somewhat familiar with replacing tubes and fuses but that's it. I got a Tophat Club Royale yesterday, installed the tubes (2xEL84, 3x12AX7), hit the power, and let her chill for awhile. The jewel light was on, the speaker jack was plugged in, and the fuse appeared to be intact too. When I hit the standby, no sound. It made me nervous so I turned it off, waited, made sure the tubes were seated and went through the process a couple more times. No sound. There were also no burning smells, buzzes or anything weird. Everything seemed to be in order, but what might I be doing wrong? I intend to get new tubes soon, but I assumed that since these were lighting up fine, I should at least be able to get sound out of it. Thanks.
