I played a gig over the weekend and my bass cut out on the last song... the money shot song, the last song that melts your face and leaves you begging for more. This has happened to me before and I was told it was the input on my bass. But I got that remade and it is solid. I am running: Peavey Mark VI bass head Laney 1x15 and 2x10 cab Ibanez EDA 905 (5 string, active) and a pedalboard with a slew of pedals, all powered and no issues there It is like my head gets too maxed out/hot and then shuts down. I even tried plugging direct in with no luck. Its not the bass, its not the cables, it MUST be the head. I have read online that this head is supposed to be one of the greats yet this keeps happening. I may be doing it wrong but it seems like I should be able to set my EQ and blast as loud as I need to. This has ONLY happened when we play a gig and I dont mic my cab. Meaning that it only happens when I need to turn it up for a live show with no mics. Please help! I am pissed off enough to get a different cab. It even distorts sometimes when I crank it. This setup should be great, and its just pissing me off!!! HELP!
