What is the DC resistance (ohm tester) between one of the greens on your input transformer and each of the other leads?

I went back through the thread and read poster 'Darkus' had the exact same issue, same symptoms, and it turned out to be a bad input transformer...  Maybe?

Yes, you have a short in your primary.  Surprised you pass signal at all.

Apollogies for not following up.  Put the new input transformer in and holy moly!!!  I was getting some signal before but now...NOW.... I've got some serious gain!  This thing sounds friggin AWESOME.  It actually sounds really, really good. I'm especially liking the DI on it.  Wow! Thank you!!  So stoked!!!!
