Problem with my Peavey 115 Combo

    Hi all,

    I'm sorry to bother you with this, but I found no precise information online. I know the best solution is to always seek professional advice but:

    a) The amp is way too big for me to be carrying it around (I don't own a car)
    b) I'm broke :(

    Okay, so when I just turn on the amp, everything's fine. I can play it very loud, mess with the EQ settings and it all works fine. But after 10 minutes or so of playing, the amp starts to have intense crackling sounds. When I sustain a note, it buzzes and crackles.

    Do you know what might be wrong with it? Have any of you experienced something similar? Is it an easy/cheap fix? Any imput would be of high value.

    Thank you so much.
  2. Passive or active bass?
    If active, try a new battery.

    If you have effects in/out (send/receive) try inserting a patch cable between the two jacks, in case they are dirty.

    Neither one is too likely to be your problem but easy to try, quick and cheap.

    And hey! No bother. If ya can't ask those kinds of questions, then whats the point of this thing?
    Other than to get advice on firing the drummer maybe?

    Welcome aboard and good luck with your amp.
