After a call to Andertons this morning the amp is going back for a complete refund.
The amp I have has made in China on the back.
The amp was supplied with the wrong valves. It came with ECC83 valves not ECC833 that is clearly written on the amp it self.
The bass specialist said they tested it and it "worked" so they were not prepared to sort out a new set of valves even though it ..
1. Had the wrong input valves.
2. The KT88 power tubes would not bias correctly and were worn out.
3. The driver tubes 2x ECC82 were very noisy and worn made in China cheap valves.
The amp also came in a large box with very little internal packaging. In fact it consists of four 1m strips of brown packing paper... Yes paper for a valve amp........ Crazy.
So my hunt goes on....
