    Default Engl Powerball (v1) - Hi gain issue

    Hello all,

    It's been a while since I've posted here since I haven't touched my axe in 5 years or so

    So I finally had the urge to pick it back up and fired up my good old Engl Powerball.

    But to my disappointment no sound was produced when I switched it to channel II (Hi gain).
    Channel I sounds fine on both clean and crunch but when I switch to channel II I only hear a hum (both on lo and hi gain).
    Switching to master 2 doesn't make a difference.

    One of the preamp bulbs does light up a bit less bright.
    Could it be that the preamp bulbs need to be replaced or might I be looking at bigger issues?

    Thank you for the help!

    I would definitely start by replacing at that tube (or valve, bulb is a new translation ;-)
