Hi guys... I was gigging the other night, tuned my bass, and proceeded to do a sound check. As soon as I plucked my strings, a high tone came out of my Ampeg. I immediately turned it down and was like what the hell. Then I tried it again after turning it down and it seemed fine. After the gig was over, I smelled something like burned wires coming from the speakers. I was like oh crap. So I look down at my pedal board (BOSS ME-50B) and I had forgotten to press the damn volume pedal on. I was not in tuning mode, and was ready to go, I just hadn't pressed the volume pedal. I had the amp at about 5.5 on volume and then turned it up to like 6.5 during the gig because I couldn't hear it well (Gee, I wonder why lol). So my question is, did I fry this amp simply because I didn't have my pedal on? Or did I possibly get a power surge and it's just coincedence? This is a brand new amp and I've gigged with it once before with no problem. I'm pretty bummed. Moreso that I went the entire set with a crappy sound lol. Any help would be appreciated.
