    Greetings all:

    I have an SWR 750 pre-Fender that needs a repair. The problem is when turned on, it will make a pop sound, then I see a small amount of smoke coming from behind the power switch.

    Any ideas what causes this?

  2. Hi.

    #1. The second sticky ;).

    #2. The power switch is fried. RS should carry a replacement. Best course of action would be to take the head to a tech for repair though.

    Yes, the magic tone smoke has escaped rendering your amp lifeless. Time for a reputable tech.
