So Evan sent me a fresh set of tubes to try, but sadly they didn't fix my issue. Now when I first inspected the board I was looking for something obvious, like a burnt resistor or a leaky mess around a capacitor. More careful inspection this evening and I noticed that one of the caps is a bit swollen at the top. So I ordered some replacements and I'm hoping that fixes the issue.

Note the top of the cap towards the front right...

Well, I installed 2 new caps, the one with the swollen top and its partner, and I have the little something I had lost back in the sound  :thumb:

Big thanks to all who offered to help, and especially Evan for sending out a set of tubes for me to try out!
