    Hey guys,

    Any of you all know why on earth my little combo is buzzing?? Once I turn it on, it buzzes for a good 30 min or so then stops. If I put in an audio input from my computer it turns to static. Could it be that it has to warm up or something (unlikely) or dust? Its getting annoying now, I can barely hear myself over the static with headphones in. Thanks

    You need to have it repaired. Many things could be wrong, none of which you are likely to be able to handle yourself.

    Thanks, looks like its about time for a new amp! It wasn't cutting it for my occasional jams anyways. Barely louder than acoustic guitars and completely lost with drums

    Yes if you are now playing with drums and more than 1 acoustic, you need to upgrade anyway :). Enjoy the search.

    Keep an eye on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

    You have a full five year warranty on your Fender Rumble. Simply send it in to an authorized Fender Service Center and they will take care of you. Fender Rumble Club founder, BumbleB had a minor issue with her Rumble 30 and Fender gave her a brand new replacement. :) Most likely Fender will replace your amp with a brand new unit, so it is worth doing that even if you are going to buy a bigger & better amp. :cool:
