Hi there fellow talkbassers! Something horrible happened at tonights rehersal. I plugged into my all tube Ampeg SVT II, turned up the volume knob as usual and played a few notes. No sound. Instead there was a sharp noise from inside the amp and it began to smell like burning components. I checked the back and saw that someone had taken the cord to the cabinet! Everyone knows that using an amp with no speaker means serious destruction! The idiots that we share our rehersal space with had a gig yesterday and they probably took the cord without noticing me. They at least have called me or written a note or something! This sucks big time for a poor musician like me. What could have happened with the amp? Are the output tubes gone? I had brand new tubes installed.
