  2. Does it have a gain knob? If it does turn that down a little bit, along with the volume. If it has a headphone jack, plug in some headphones and see if it still distorts. If it doesn't, it probably is the speaker.

    How big is the amp? I remember in the days when I used to practise in my uncle's flat, he had a little (and I mean tiny!) Vox bass amp. After a few weeks of use (And I only used it once a week), it started distorting badly, and eventually packed in.

    My uncle told me he'd only had it a month or two (though I'm not too sure about the validity of those claims...), and that I was responsible - considering I was so bad in those days (and pobably even now...) the rest of the band used to turn me down (really!) - but that's another story...

    To be honest, a few people have said that Vox are more or less living on their reputation at the moment, with their combos at least. If you only got it for Christmas, it should still be under warranty - either take it back where you got it from, or contact Vox themselves.
