Hey dudes

I recently bought a used but perfectly mint Peavey 5150 II head and it was working amazing with my triple xxx cab when i bought it. The gain and tone was amazing and sounded far better than a dual rectifier.

I figured a original 5150 cab would work better so i sold the triple xxx cab and replaced it with a 5150 cab. The 5150 cab was made in the early 90's as the owner said, and looks great, no abuse or anything. So i figured it would work great with my head, so i didnt test it while the seller was at place ( a mistake i know)

when its on clean it sounds horrible, and makes strange noises.

what should i do? How do you tell when tubes are bad?
is the Orignal 5150 cab compatable with a 5150 II head?


Any help would be greatly appreciated

Mike,

Always be prepared to replace tubes when buying used. I bought a 5150II and in the middle of playing after 2 hours it went moot. I replaced a preamp and I was back in business.

BTW - the seller told me he put new tubes in. Maybe it was a bad tube but after that I replaced at 6 preamp tubes.
