    Hello i have a b2r running a avatar 210. When i practice at high volumes the sound just cuts out then comes back again. I usaly turn it off then back on and the sound comes back again. This is becoming a hassle. Today i was playing and felt the back of the head it was realy hot. I think the problem is the fan doesnt work. How can i find if this is the problem and how much would it cost to have it fixed. :help:

    take it to your local Ampeg repairman
    $0 if it's still under the 5 year warranty

    it clips because it's too hot.

    Don't play too much at hig volume, make pauses as soon as possible and don't take your time to bring it for repair.

    I had an Ampeg SVT-400T which had dual 200w power sections and I replaced the fan about every 2 years of hard use. I found one from Mouser Electronics for about $20 and it wasn't a big deal to replace if you can solder.
