OH MY GOD!!!!!!! I found my mistake! I have not had the grounding strip all connected! I swear I checked this multiple times, but clearly not. So all the voltages seem to check out now, and low and behold a beautiful sounding amp! I have been raving to my friend for the past hour about how it works! Now my neighbors must be sick of its amazing tone! Wow thank you all sooooo much. I feel like I just gave birth to a child I am so happy!
