Question about B-52 Music
B-52 all tubes amp for guitar AT-100 So, as I said, the distortion always worked good. Now when I change with the foot switch and even, manually to the distortion channel, there is no guitar sound. It's like when you try to listen a radio station and you cannot be on it, it feels that the Amp will blow ?

SOURCE: Static Noise from guitar amp.
I take it you have made sure that both the cable to the distortion box from the guitar and the cable to the amp are both good. From the description you give, it sounds like there is no signal getting to the pedal. If the cable is good, then the next likely suspect would be the input jack on the fuzz box. Try wiggling it a little with the guitar cable in place to see if it is loose. Some input jacks are unbelievably cheap and flimsy. A crackling sound (static like) is almost always a bad connection. If it was the output jack, I would think that the guitar signal would come through a least a little bit, but you might want to try wiggling that one, too, if the input jack isn't the culprit.
Another possibility to check is the battery, but this doesn't seem as likely. Some effects units devour batteries, especially units that use 9V batteries. I have a multi effect pedal that kills a 9V in about an hour.

Nine times out of ten, any problem with an amp having no sound coming out, it's a wiring issue. Make sure all of the wires internal to the amp are propely hooked up. Also, try switching out the quarter inch cord you are using from your guitar to your amp. Could be a bad cable. Unless you have blown the speaker completely, something is loose or not hooked up properly.

First of all I would call the radio station and let the know that there over modulating just a bit.this has happened to me a few times even on my tel/phone. I use to get WOKO on my amp. You can try and move the amp to diffrent location , reverce the polarty switch on the back , not much more you can do. But watch out when you here music comming from you toster your in big trouble, just kidding. Good luck DFD

Replace the switch. You gave no make/model number for your amp but if it has a jack for foot pedal operation of clean/dist function then try that. (on most amps) it will switch in spite of a bad front panel switch.
