Problems with my Acoustic B200H head

    I have an Acoustic B200H amp head that I got in August of last year and it seems to have mysteriously died. I get absolutely no sound of any kind out of it, not even any buzzing or static, no matter what I do.

    Any ideas about what the cause might be? Is there any sort of troubleshooting/easy fix I can try, or should I dig out the warranty info?

    Honestly, I have no idea what can be wrong with it. I'd take it back to GC. I've heard they are great about fixing or even replacing those amps without much hassle.

    Dead silence usually means it's not getting power at all, or if it is getting power, then the signal chain to the speakers is broken in some manner. You should definitely take it back to GC; Acoustic is their house brand, so they have a vested interest in giving it good technical support.

    Alright. I think the labor warranty might have expired, but parts should still be covered at least. Thanks for the input everyone!
  6. Unfortunately the parts are alway the cheapest things. If the amp has an effects loop try jumpering the send and return with an instrument cable. If no joy take a trip to GC.


    P.S. I assume you've done the obvious like changing out your speaker cable.
