Hi all, I hope there are other Blue Soul users willing to chime in.... I had problems with my Glockenklangs Blue Soul preamp since the beginning, almost three years ago, but I didn't use it as my main amp and if I did I mostly used the poweramp section. My 3 year warranty is running out so I want to sort things out. One problem is that the gain knob produces distortion/static noise. And not only when you turn it but its also close to impossible to find a setting where the distortion dissapears. And I don't mean the distortion that is supposed to happen when you turn the gain high up! Second 'problem' is when plugged into the preamp at the front that even with the gain knob completely turned off, there still is a considerable amount of signal comming through! Do other users experience this? Third 'problem' is when I use only the poweramp, by plugging into the effects return, the gain/distortion light is often lighting up. How is this possible? You would think that signal is not allowed to get into the preamp section!? Like some kind of feedback is going on inside the circuit? Could these things be connected? Anyone recognize this? Thanks a lot for any help!
