Hey bass dudes, So my drummer brother just got himself a drumset for our apartment, and needless to say, it was necessary for us to jam in the following days. Well, to keep up with the loudness of the drums (and my brother wasn't even playing very loud, since we've got neighbors, and it's a pretty tiny kit) I had to turn my amp up louder than usual. I have a Peavey Minx 1x10 35 watt. Dimed the knobs on my bass, and turned the gain up pretty loud, a few times all the way the up to max (was that a bad idea)? I had also just put flatwounds on the bass, and was experimenting with my new Behringer BDI21 bass driver. which made the sound somewhat deeper and fatter than usual. I also boosted the drive a lot on the driver in an attempt to achieve overdrive, and it sounded pretty crappy. Well, after all that, I've started getting a new weird noise from my amp. In the lower registers, mostly on the E-string and a little bit on the A string, I've been getting a flappy farty sound out of my amp, kind of like the sound of a piece of cardboard getting blown around and flapping back and forth, or like one of those raspberry sounds people do with their tongue and lips - except it's coming out of amp, as if the amp is now struggling to produce clear sounds in the low register. This happens when the gain is around 4, more or less (around 10-o-clock). So now the dreaded question... do you think I blew my amp? or something less serious? Would it be expected for my treatment of the amp to blow it like that? and how big a deal do you think it would be to repair, as far as cost? I'm pretty sad, cause I haven't even had the poor Minx for a year (bought it last spring), and I was hoping to hear it sing on small gigs and stuff... and now I've gone and seemingly broken its voicebox :'( Thanks guys!
