Dropout on Ampeg SVT450HE - Bad News?

    I have just bought the new SVT450H (the replacement for the SVT350H that Ampeg has no info on!) and I am starting to get dropout. I'm connected to a 210HE cab via Speaker Cable. It plays for a while then after about 1hr or so, it starts cutting out for about 30 seconds, comes back on then happens every 3 - 10 min intervals.
    I'm gutted, and need this amp for gigging. if I send it to Ampeg, I fear I'll be without it for too long.
    Anyone know what's wrong or has similar problem?
    I'm based in UK so I'm sure the electrics are slightly different.

    Help

    Take it back to the shop. Buy a real amp.
     
  3. It should still be under the warranty or shop guarantee

    I replied to your email........

    Sounds like a simple issue, as mentioned there.

    I assume you are under warranty, but I am not sure what the importer has set up, system-wise, for doing warranty work.

    I would assume there are local shops that are approved to do warranty work. others have had it done that way in UK.
