    so today i was just jammin along and my amp started fuzzing and cutting in and out, not turning off. also at some points it would flap like a fart when i hit low notes. i play out of a gsr 200 that may very well have souldering issues, and a cord with issues too. can you guys tell me what might be the problem? thanks!:scowl:

    flapping like a fart suggests you blew a speaker. hard to tell without being there. or knowing exactly what you're using.

    Your amp might just have dirty switching contacts in the Effects loop Return jack. A really easy way to find out is to simply plug a guitar cord into the Effects send and Return jacks, then play the amp and see if the problem is gone.

    You've already identified two possible sources of the problem. Fix those first, or at least verify that they're absolutely not causes.
