I've owned my Fender B-DEC 30 amp since buying it new in 2007 (15 years ago) for $725 in Melbourne Australia. I've really only used it as an amp, for low volume practice, but I've recently started to use its many features as a learning tool. It's grouse. All worked well until recently, - after several minutes of use (with loops etc running) it shuts down, and puts out a horrible distorted noise. All controls become inoperative and buttons illuminate red. Has anyone else experienced this, and how did you fix it? I will contact a repairer in Melbourne this week and let you know, but any tips are welcome. Rod.
