    Got a Premier model 50 with some sound issues. I just replaced all the filter caps and most of the tone caps. some resistors that have drifted in values and also a good 8" speaker. Sounds pretty good until I get to 3/4 of full volume then the sound is very distorted. This not a tube breakup sound. Any ideas?

    Do you have another speaker you can try it with ? Don't know if it's the speaker or the amp but that test will tell you real fast.
