my "quick gig" amp is a trace elliot ah600smx. on friday we were playing a gig at the masquerade here in atlanta and the amp took a walk on me. what happened is this - when i set up i put the instrument cable into the jack on the amp only about 1/4 of the way, and then the other edge i put in the ledge under the amp. turns out this gig, in my haste, i plugged the cable all the way in. when i turned the amp on i got a loud buzz - very loud - and then nothing. dead. i checked the fuse, and it was fine. i obviously shorted the input. is it possible that that is the cause of the problem? just looking for some educated opinions here, more of an academic issue, since i intend on getting the amp repaired regardless.
