  1. ok so i posted the mesa i bought a few days ago with problems i had with it and so on. so i back to the store today and returned it and bought....

    [​IMG]

    i think it sounded great at the store through the same head i have and another rick (tuned higher).
    so i get it home and fit it nicely into my civic (thank god haha) after spending an arm and a leg only to encounter a new problem

    i pull in all my stuff ready to jam by myself before work and i turn it on and NOTHING!

    i'm pretty sure i blew my head at the last band practice. when i turned it on that day it had like a destortion noise for a second and quickly turned it off, scared. i turned it back on a few minutes later and everything seemed ok.
    when i got home today and turned it on the same thing happened, distortion sound from a guitar amp, like buzz, but super loud... after a few moments the got nasty feedback and shut off... i let it sit for 4 hour while at work, only to come home to the same problem. i tryed switching cables, everything, turning on and off, different bass and everything.. is there anything i can do to fix it or am i doomed to return my cabinets AGAIN and get lesser cabs and a new head? please help

    thanks.

    Yup.

    Sounds like yer head is cooked. :(

    Look fer one of the older 3500s...they're good heads and won't cost you an arm + leg.

    Looks like you need a new head... Try another head on it (at a store or wherever) before you get a new one though.
