Hi. I could use a bit of advice. I have one of these little amps. A while ago it began to giving a slight popping sound intermittantly. Now it will give a crackle sound intermittantly, like a cable might do. It's not the cable though. Is it worth getting fixed? Any ideas what might be the problem? Thanks for any replies.
hi.i have one of these little amps in india( i leave it there for about 6 months during monsoon)and usualy when i fire her up she makes a whole bunch of noises including pops and squeaks crackles. i take a can of electrical cleaner/ lubricator with me now and a half hour spraying and lubeing brings her back as good as new.you may not have the same humidity problems as i do but if you give her a good clean, including all the jack sockets pots, etc, if it still does it at least youve eliminated oxidation as the cause. i like my little backline as it was my first exposure to the GK sound. its not loud but fits nicely with my small accoustic indian jazz fusion jam band. hope you get it sorted.
