Someone who knows what a 9A pinout is may be able to help with this one. If I get any nibbles, I'll post all the gory details, but for now, let me just say it's a tube-to-socket, nine pins/ten holes dilemma. :?:
Anyone want to take a stab at it?
Thanks.

Hi, Joe--
Sounds like you maybe subsituting tubes.Nope, just needed a magnifying glass to get a better look at that socket. Turns out that what I thought was a tenth hole was either a nasty pit in the ring where the holes are, or maybe the socket was made with ten but the one with no connection didn't get filled properly. Anyway, once I looked at it reeeeally close , the problem resolved itself. (Kinda looked like this when it dawned on me. [Expletives deleted])
All three tubes are in their respective sockets, and it works beautifully.

So, how long do I have to wear this Toob Noob hat?

Doug, you put that out for the whole world to see.

I'm like... :lol:

I'd say you'll suffer enough once you had 100+ views on this post.

Nothing more needs to be said.

ROFL...... :shock: ooops. :oops: sorry.

Gotta love the learning process. Without we'd be, um, stumps. Yeah, that's it.
Like the one guy on GuitarNuts says, "If it's low voltage, experiment; it probably won't kill you!" (WARNING: Not applicable to tube amps.)

Three tools every do-it-yourself tube amp tech should own:

A light

A mirror

And a wrench to pull that sucker out!

, Wes.

I had the ol' two-LED headband light on, but all three tube sockets are under the chassis, and that one is tucked up into one corner of the cab. Couldn't find a dental mirror, or my larger inspection mirror, so I finally decided to risk getting my head stuck in the cab. (Wouldn't my friends on the fire department have loved that call. ) I think I even got a magnifying glass into operation. (Hey, even Eric Clapton is wearing bifocals these days, but he probably doesn't have to mess with DIY projects, either.)
Hey, "if it was too easy, (blah blah blah)." :roll:

Doug

That would be pretty funny if your head got stuck and you had to call all your buddies to extract you. I am sure you see that type of thing from time to time.

You've heard of people getting stuck in jail? This guy only wishes he were that lucky, he is stuck out of jail. :D

Never thought of that.

That is a very vulnerable position to be in in jail isn't it? :shock:

Gives a new meaning to "hard time" doesn't it?

You know, we are going to get in trouble if we keep going with this. :D

Two more words: "Duct tape." Around the ears, so he can slide his noggin back to where the rest of him is.

Guilty....oh so busted. But this is my first offense. I think. Probation, right? None of that bar scene...errr...bars scene. Ummm you know what I mean.

Has this hit a hundred views yet so we can move on? :lol:

Tune in tomorrow to hear Bish and Wes say (not exactly in unison) . . .
