Pot probably needs cleaning with contact cleaner. If amp is more than 20 yrs old, could be time for new filter caps.

Fender hot rod deville 212 111. On the 2nd and 3rd distortion chanels the noise coming out of the speaker is very loud. Is this normal? Hard to play through the noise.


Hi. If the volume and drive levels are considerably low but you still hear a noise, you may want to consider trying a different guitar cable. The noise may be coming from a ground loop which is being amplified and overdriven by the amp itseld. I hope this helps. :-)

My Laney VS30 212 at band practice last week decided to intermittently cut out, but not fully just the volume would drop out then return about 5 mins later. Not sure if this was a common problem. It might...


Sounds like output valve, if the amp is more than few hundred hours then suspect this for sure. I don't know much about this amp specifically but does the sound fade/return suddenly or over a few seconds? Try running it with the back off and fan on the valves etc. Then play at loudness where problem occurs and see if any improvement. Remember that at band practice you always play much louder than you think and put a lot of stress on it.

This is likely a failure of the power switch. It momentarily contacts, charges the power supply caps and then breaks the contact. This is not that uncommon as these switches are not well made and often not designed to handle the inrush surge current.

My Fender 212R 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amplifier keeps on cutting out. The guy I took it to says there is something wrong with the cylinders? I also could have heard that wrong. I honestly don't know much...


You had best get a second opinion! When somebody says "there is something wrong" means they don't really know the details enough to give you an estimate even. If the amp cuts out sharply I would suspect that: 1. Bad volume control 2. Cracked circuit board 3. Bad solder joint on circuit board 4. Bad jack. These are in order from least to most likely.

The sound on all the stock kits I found to be too low. What I did was create a custom kit and altered the dynamics of all the pads and cymbals - once you're in the dynamics settings, just hit the pads/cymbals the hardest you normally would and save that setting!

Have amp only 2 months & clean channel is muddy. it was clean when i bought it. its somewhere in between clean & drive


Test if the sound is clean using the headphone jack.

IF IT IS CLEAN in the phones, you have probablydamaged the speakers with excessive volume causing the voice coils to rub the pole pieces due to heating. If you can reach the cone either front or back GENTLY push on the cone and listen for ANY rubbing noise.

There are also electronic component problems that can cause this IF the headphone test is also muddy sound.
