GALLIEN KRUEGER 2001 RB JUST STOPED WORKING!!!!

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Breslin dp, Mar 16, 2009.


  1. I was playing the amp at practice and all of the sudden there was no sound. I turned around and the power light was out,I can't get the amp to come back on for anything! Just so you know I bought the amp brand new and I have only had it for about two months. What really gets me I am trying out for a band and this was only my second practice. I made sure I went over all my steps to make sure I didn't do anything wrong!!! It was plugged directly into the wall with no other amps on that outlet,the outlet has a gfi on it. Has this happened to anyone!!! It was so hard to finish practice!!! I just ordered a GK 4x10 rbh I am tempted to send it back when it gets here.....I have never had a problem like this in the past,Gk better make this up to me.:scowl:

    Stuff happens...
    Why do you doubt that they will take care of it? Isn't it under warranty?
    And yeah, probably a fuse...
     
  5. There is no fuse that I can see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  6. I am looking at it as we speak people!!!!! No fuse!!!!

    It's probably internal...
     
  8. I have waited my whole adult life to get a good bass head and this happens the second time using it with a band!!!
     
  9. If you void the warranty by opening it up to change a fuse???

    I'd chill the F out, wait until tomorrow and call GK. They will take care of you. Amps of all ages and ranges from various manufacturers have problems. Take a deep breath and relax:D

    plenty of places offer rentals. I live in a nothing town and I can rent a bass rig for the weekend. Everything will be alright. Although inconvenient this should work out fine.
     
  16. Sorry the amp was so great and this happened,just down in the dumps!!!
     
  17. I guess it could be worse<at least I'm playin in a band again!!!!

    We all understand how you feel. Many of us have been in the same situation. It sucks to have your equipment crap the bed on you, but you are in good hands with GK. I've dealt with them on a couple occasions and it's always been smooth. Good luck man an don't fret!

    **** breaking on you at inconvenient times is part of playing man, trust me its even worse when things break during shows. its happened to me a lot, im notorious for breaking everything i own without trying ha.
