    So just a quick question for you guys. My amp is a little fender bassman 112. Two days ago I had a band practice with some of my friends which was good. My friends have larger amps than I do so I have to turn my amp up a little past where I feel comfortable. Yesterday I came back to my amp to practice a little. After turning on I found that my amp sounded very fuzzy and quiet. I tried playing around with volume nob and such. I know how to turn on and ajust nobs on my amp, about it After a minute or two of playing agressively though the fuzz went away and my amp got louder so I could play normally. So what I was wondering, is this something I should worry about, and does anyone know what it was?

    Well, that's a practice amp, meant for practicing by yourself. You're asking it to do something it can't do. My guess is, you've blown the speaker. To play rock n roll in a band requires sufficient power and multiple speakers. Might be time to go amp shopping.
