    Ok. Today my amp would get this weird fuzz/buzz when I attack the string heavy. Then it cut out completely. I would still send a signal through my xlr out to the board but nothing to the speaker in the cab itself. Any one have a suggestion on where to start looking for the problem?

    If it has an effects loop try patching an instrument cable from effects send to effects return. You could have a dirty effects return jack (internal contacts). Especially if you never use the effects loop.

    Can you confirm the amp power section is out? I.e. have you hooked it up to another cab. 600watts and 2x10 sounds like the problem right there, IME. Not the power rating per se, but the physical limitations of the drivers.

    No I have confirmed really anything yet. I didn't have a whole lot of time to check out sense it happened right before we started playing. I use mainly just and a signal feed and monitor with my amps tone. So I just had the sound guy patch it into my monitor sense he was still getting a signal. I will have time Tuesday to really go through it. Just trying to get some ideas on what to check. Thanks
