How many solder connections are we talking about here

in your average handmade tube amp?

 

I have solder joint vibration issues and am going to take it in for search and repair mission. But how can the tech find the problem -I mean there must be 2354981750913457 solder joints in there yes? Just curious please humor me.

thanks

:cool:

Break the connection between pre and poweramp. If the poweramp works with a signal (guitar ;) ) its 50% less. Then bypass every gainstage except the CF (35% less). still 15%. Then check all grounds, then . . . .
