    Ok so im in my garage practicing with my setup (stingray, 1001RB-II, and 810). I stop go back into my room for about 30 minutes come back out and fire up the amp to start practicing again... and nothing.

    I thought the mute was on at first, but i hadnt changed anything. I have replaced all the cables and still nothing. The amp will power on (blue light) but when i touch the cable plugged into it there is no noise or anything. This amp has been reliable for the last year and i have no idea why it decided to crap out while it was chillin in my garage :mad:

    Anybody have any thoughts?

    Well, would it be under warranty? I have never had any problems with my 1001RB head. Except I broke some knobs off. But I fixed those, and reseated the solder joints while I was there. Get it to an amp tech ASAP

    Oh, and watch the title. To me... Them's fightin werds!!!
  3. Try plugging it into a different outlet of the house :eyebrow:

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    A friend of mine had issues with a fuse in his G-K combo. Not familiar enough with G-K to know if that might be the culprit, but perhaps it's a possibility?

    I avoided the 1001RB because of the harmony-central reviews. They speak of just what you say. ALOT of them do.

    Yes, the 1001RB. Not 1001RB-II. According to Dan Elliot, they have a very low failure rate.


    to bad for those stupid plastic bolts :scowl:
