**Please bear with me, I have very limited knowledge about amps but am willing to learn.** I have a Peavey MAX 115 bass amp and am experience what I believe to be clipping on high notes. I usually play an upright bass with a shadow electronics single disk transducer for a pickup. Lately I now play on it with a Ibanez GSR 200. I have experienced the clipping on both instruments and other basses I've tried. At first it was an isolated incident where the amp would not play at all until I turned it off for a bit and turned it back on. Lately it happens whenever I play on the amp. If I play low notes, it usually does not cut out. However as soon as a play higher than a high C (5th fret of G string) it will cut out altogether. Right as I hit the high note it goes into a protection mode (with the DDT that is on the amp I believe) and I cannot play anything low or high until I turn of the amp or slap the strings. I've also noticed that if I try to hit a note hard, the power button will have a flash of red but will remain blue otherwise. I've tried different cords, basses, and settings but it always seems to come back. The amp has worked well for over a year for me and has just started doing this. Is there a way I can fix this? I am not afraid to work on the amp myself if it is more cost effective. Thank you!
