BLASTED!!! What is wrong with my amp?? HELP MAAAAEEE

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by OldSchoolBass, Jun 25, 2008.

  1. It is my Peavey T-Max 210 Combo.. Great amp, until last night. :bawl: And I hope it is nothing big... I was playing and my guitarist asked if something was "buzzing".. I thought it was fret buzz (my Ibanez needs a set up)... Then I moved and heard this "rattle/buzz" when I attacked the lower strings. Very noticable on say the 7th to 8th fret on the E string...

    The strange thing, was when I turned on my phaser and flanger, there was no rattle/buzz.. Once I turned them off - I got that sound again..

    At lower volumes, and even on the D and G, it wasn't really there... I didn't see any tears in the speakers... But then again, I didn't have time to tear into the cabinet last evening.. They are the original speakers.

    Any help, insight, similar issues would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, if it goes away when certain effects are one, then I would say it's not physically related to the insrument. I assume the phaser and flanger might be cutting your lows a bit, so that may be why it is not happenening when the effects are engaged.

    Granted you checked for tears, but did you check to see if there were any creases?
  3. I didn't check for creases - I am going to pull the grill off tomorrow (I did the flashlight checkeroo) - it is at our practice facility. I just didn't have time to (screaming) do (wife) it (syndrome) last night after practice.. :meh:
