Question about Crate Music
1. Sounds like it's the input jack., but it could be the volume knob. Have you tried turning Gain1 and Gain 2 or the Clean Channel volume? Try them first when you're plugged in to the jack on the left , then when you're plugged in the back. If none of these work, it's most likely the preamp. 2. Even if the preamp is shot, there's a quick fix - get a guitar preamp or an effects pedal - they have volume and tone controls. 3. Finally - many pros just plug into the aux jack(on the rear panel) and control the volume and tone through their instruments. Hope one of these works. Good Luck.

Sounds like your master volume is turned up too much. The channel volume will make the squealing go away(caused by high gain and humbuckers). The best thing to do is dial in your favorite presets and change the channel volume to the correct level with the master volume where you usually keep it. I use my Spider Valve at master volume at about noon and the channel volume between nine o'clock and noon. Let me know if this does not solve the problem......

Either the control is damaged (happens if they get hit) or it is possible the circuit board it is mounted on has broken solder OR worse, a crack near the control. The unit will require servicing. Parts are readily available.
