I've got a LMII that I've had for a few months now (bought new at GC). The amp cut out a few times when I was rehearsing with my band the last night. It did it when I played on the high D or G strings a little harder than usual. This was with a stock Epiphone Goth Thunderbird. I am very concious of where my input gain is set and always make sure that I do not activate the clip light when playing. I never saw the clip light even come on before the amp would cut out. The amp would just stop putting out sound. I would turn it off for a few seconds and turn it back on and it acted as if nothing ever happened. It did this 3 times last night at different times. Is this a protection issue with the onboard limiter? Should I use a compressor in front of the amp to keep peaks down? I have my EQ on the amp set fairly flat with just a slight boast in the low and high mids at around 1 o'clock. I don't have the VPF or VLE knobs on at all. Gain is set at about 10 o'clock and my master volume is around 11 o'clock. I do have an MXR M80 DI in the effects loop that I use for coloring and overdrive but I had it set to work with the input gain of the amp to not produce clipping. Is there a fault with my amp? Should I take it back to GC for replacement? Anyone other LMII owners have this happen? I have a big headlining gig this weekend and I do not want to have any issues during my set. Any suggestions are appreciated.
