ampeg svt-3 warm up crackle
Hi , i bought my svt-3 new about 6 years ago , its never let me down and always delivered the goods . Its been used as a practice amp almost on a daily basis at home as well as live playing . Its one of the last models made in the US before production in vietnam . Ive noticed , switching it on after 10 - 15 minutes it RELEASES a 5 seconds of continual crackle sounding like some form of interference . There are no problems with the amp before or after this occurs , its just there !!!! Ive cleaned the pots , changed the preamp valves (all of them) swapped spkrs , and it does it at different rooms and gigs . It sat in its roadcase in my bedroom for about 3 months as i was using another head , so could not being used for that period had something to do with it ??? Im interested to hear from anyone who can help here .
