Techies - effects loop fault

    The effects loop causes my quest II preamp makes a ticking sound (about 5 times a second) if a cable is plugged into the 'send' jack. It does this even if I just use a cable in the loop with no effects, even if I don't plug the 'return' end of the cable in, and even if the amp is muted. Epifani say that it's a design fault and that there's nothing I can do about it. I'd still like to fix it, anyone got any tips on what a fix would entail? A circuit diagram for my local repair guru would be great too. TIA.

    If it is a design error as you state, Epifani should be doing everything in their power to fix it, be working on a fix for it, or offer you a full refund. That is just completely unacceptable. As an engineer, this is my not so humble opinion.

    I'm with Jazzman. If their design is that poor that all they can say to you is there's nothing they can do about it, then it's time to buy a better amp from a better company.

    I'll not touch Epifani if that's the kind of customer service to expect. "It's not broken, it's just designed poorly." What kind of a company is that???
