Problem with my SVT 3 Pro !!! What's wrong here ?

  1. Hi guys,

    Last week I had this strange problem with my SVT 3 Pro. We (my band) hadn't played for about 3 weeks. I plugged it in and I heard something like, let's say chirping (peeping). Very strange.. suddenly there was that big crack. I turned my head off and back on .. It still worked but much too quiet .. I mean, with my master volume at the maximum level, I barely could hear myself - there just wasn't enough power!! Maybe it was the tube in the pre-amp, I guessed ? A friend of our guitarist (who's working in a repair service) looked at my amp, but he found nothing wrong with it !?
    (In fact he told him I should read my manual!):rolleyes:
    2 days later I tried it again and everything worked fine again !? Does someone have any idea what could have been the problem here ? Imagine it happens again ... :confused:
    Thanx !
