Yo
i have a peavy mark 2 head that is switching off once it hits a certain volume. i assume it's overheating. i've had to get the fan replaced already because it's located on the bottom of the head, and some gouger unscrewed the rubber feet and i didn't notice and it was lying on top of the cab and well.... kablammo.

so i need to get it fixed, anyone know a body who could do such a thing, or alternatively anyone selling a bass head on the cheap?

'preciated....

That'll be Martin Nolan won't it?

Hec I've used him before, and I've a cab to get up to him up some point next week/weekend. If you're not in a mad rush I can give you a lift up.

martin is great, he can get the amp back to you sharpish if you require.

i've been leaving stuff into jimi at jimis music store out in walkinstown for a while. lovely lad and he really knows his stuff. he'll turn it around quickly for you too.

I'm about to take this over to Mr Nolan..but maybe one of you can help. I left my Fender Blues Deluxe on standby..came back a while later and...nothing

There are inner reverby noises when I flick switches but nothing from the speakers

Any ideas? @moose maybe?

My money is on a blown fuse or dead valve/valve base.
It was a dead valve

I asked it it could have been the valve base..in an attempt to make it seem like I knew what I was talking about but no, just the valve

He doesn't know why it went though, which is worrying ..just hope I get a few more years of use and neglect out of it before I need to see him again
