Long story short, I received my Ampeg B18-n s/n 310175 from my grandfather before he died about 10 years ago. I played bass then but had a Hartke pro series 4/10 w/ 500w head so I didnt use it. I am now wanting to use it since I have been reading that it sounds AWESOME. but mine doesn't......
first off, the amp works, all the tubes light up and I can play through it BUT, the amp sounds "Farty" not even halfway turned up? in all honesty, it sounds like crap.... I want to fix this
second, one of the RCA 7027a power tubes started smoking, I pulled it and the amp still worked. I am going to samash tomorrow to get a replacement. the amp sounded crappy before this happened. if any of the other tubes would cause this I would like to see if I can replace that too....
third, I cant seem to find any info on MINE? none of the pics look like mine? the pic is below. the screen was replaced by me when I got it 10 years ago, it was the black mesh. the head even looks different???
I just want this fixed and want to do it myself. please help!!
