Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
Got this new about one year ago and recently it will start this hissing noise-floor type of sound through the speaker that eleveates in volume until it pops real loud (and then it's done). I unplugged the pedal switch and the speaker input, but it still does it. It happens randomly, and will repeat, making it unreliable for gigs. thanks for the help!
Not sure what make and model your rig is but the symptoms you have are classic for a failing transistor or capacitor. There is not a lot you can do about this except trace down the faulty part and replace it. We do this in the workshop by cyclic heating with a heat gun, and cooling of individual components with freeze spray until we locate the offending part. If it is a year old, I am hoping that it had a 1 year warranty, and that you are close enough to the end of it that you can claim the repairs as warranty. Sorry that this does not actually fix the problem for you, but now you know what you have to do next. Get the amp back to the retailer you purchased it from. Hope it all works out for you. If my advice has helped to resolve the problem for you, a FixYa rating from you would be great. Cheers
