Playing today and the amp would turn itself off... anyone else experience this? And if so is that a sign that it's dying or is there something I can do to remedy it?
Jammed for about an hour, some compression, gain at noon, volume was about 2 o clock. Pretty loud and a warm distortion to it, sounded great but then it would just cut out so I'd wait a bit and it would come back on. The power never actually turned off the sound just cut out. So I dialed the volume back to noon and it was better except for when I kicked on my swollen pickle pedal. That would immediately make the sound cut out again. I know that pedal is a big booming sounding fuzz but not sure why it would make the amp cut out.
Any troubleshooting would be great.
Thanks in advance
That is A LOT of power, sure you are not damaging the speaker cab causing the amp to self-protect? I don't remember off hand 7-Pros cutting out, letting out magic smoke yes but even those reports have dropped off.
Just call me B-String 2

revision number C00. I'll be talking to musiciansfriend and ampeg both and update if anything comes of it. I bought it from musiciansfriend as a restock so..... I don't think the 5 year warranty applies to it unfortunately. But fingers crossed anyways. Thanks!
