Better leave it for a tech to go through it.

It sounds like a bad tube or broken volume knob, leave it to the tech definitely.

Yeah sad.gif but you could change tubes again and have it work for another couple of weeks, soon enough that'll cost you more than a tech would charge. Something seem wrong with your amp so I'm not convinced there's a quick fix.

Its a pricey repair but you definitly need to take it to the tech to take a look at it ! I'm sure he will be able to repair it..

Then it's definitely a bad knob mate. I think you should look for some other service, 70$ is a lot of money for changing one Marshall knob. I payed ~40$ for mine and they installed original "bumblebee" metal pot from Marshall, not those cheap plastic Chinese ones they install today.
