what happened to my amp?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by bassboysam, Dec 3, 2004.

  1. The other day I plugged into my YBA-3 as I normally would, i turned up the gain and noticed i was getting more distortion than normal, i turned up the gain to full (which i have done before) and i got a very fuzzy/dirty distortion (I love it!!) but what would cause the amp to do that. Usually I can only get just a hint of distortion even when i crank the gain, the tubes are supossed to be new....any ideas, any of you YBA-3 users ever have this "problem" I have NOS Mullard 12ax7 and winged C EL34s.

    My first thought would be bad tubes, but you say they're new. I don't have any experience with your model amp, though, so it might be another type of problem. If you can, change the tubes and see what happen.
