i just picked up my ampeg svt 3 yestrday, i had to pay the last $158 on it. i got home and was playing and this happen once. and i didnt think any thing of it. i would turn the eq on or just slap really hard with the eq off the amp would shut off/kinda. its on but no sound is comming out.like how u turn the amp on and nothing happens for 30 secs. i dont have any thing set pass 12 o clock. today it keeps on doing it. if i dont have the eq on , and hit a note hard before it shuts off the eq light turns on for a sec. iam sorry if this is a mess but iam freaking out. also if i turn the gain down really low it doesnt happen. but then i cant play .
