Need help with some trouble shooting

Post by _Skipper »

Hello friends,
I am trying to trouble shoot a 100w amp actually. When I turn on the amp, one of the 4 el-34 tube gets really hot and and pretty soon it blows the fuse. If I swap the tube around, the same thing happens to another tube and the same thing happens. I am sort a new to this and I am wondering how I should go about trouble shooting this. Any help is appreciated.
