Hello all, I am in a predicament and don't really know what to do.

My Laney 100W Tube head seems to be dying. Whenever I switch to the second channel (distortion) the volume drops to the floor and sounds terrible. I have researched online and it sounded like I needed new tubes. So I took it to the local shop to get new tubes and told the guy about the problem. He said that it probably [U]was NOT[/U] the tubes and something with the electronics within the amp. Is this right?

I bought this amp used for like $220 at guitar center (I got the price slashed due to a friendship with a popular musician around the area). Do you think I should sell the head and try and buy a new solid-state for like $400? I don't have much money so $400 is my limit right now.

I appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thanks.
