    and it blew up.
    now my basement stinks like burnt tubes, and i'm kinda bummed out.
    At least my local l&m is nice enough to switch me a new one.

    I'm guessing that there had to be a short, the output tubes went super hot, the fan stopped competely and pop!

    Sorry to hear your YBA200 croaked. I had one for about two weeks & sent it packing. My 70's 100 watt Marshall Super Bass blew it away (pardon the pun;)

    I'm thinking I won't be getting another. One of the guys in my band has an old yba-2 and i find it sounds way better anyways.
    I'll get a little combo for home practicing and rent when I need big stuff.

    Probably bad output tubes, they'll fry the trannies up real nice.

    If you had a bad output tube, any amp would just sound bad...

    oh yeah, decided to just switch for another yba200.

    this amp rocks.

    For such a simple control layout theres almost too many tones.
    It can go from earth shaking deep to super clacky bright in a couple dials.
    The scoop and resonance alone are extremely powerful for changing the sound.
    Now I just need some 12's or a good 15 cab to go with it. My 410 is a bit too high mid sounding by itself.
