    OK heres the situation: I had a gig this past weekend. Set up the WT-550 running through one Ampeg 4x10 hlf. The sound was awful, cutting in and out and distorted. Well went direct to the mains for the night. When I got home I opened up the casing for the Eden head and the pre-amp tube was just laying in the case, dont ask, I have know clue why. Put the pre-amp tube back in, sound still the same, ordered Electro-Harmonix 12ax7's, got them in , put it in the amp and now the sound is steady, good lows, good hi's, and the power is there and consistant, however it sounds like im running it through a distortion pedal. I ran the cabinant through another amp to make sure that wasnt the problem and the cab is fine, new batteries in bass, and new cords. Anyone have any ideas as to the problem?
