Rocker 15 Head got quiet

Post by akul2002 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:02 am

I got my Rocker 15H in july. Today i played it on full power and it was really loud but suddenly i heard a weird noise for a second and it got very quiet. 😥

Is my amp broken or could it be something else?🤔
Thx for your replies.

Check fuses - if it blows immediately, then it could be tubes. Tubes are always the first culprit.

Check the tubes if the fuse doesn't blow. Lighting up is not an indicator of a tube working FYI, but if a tube glows red hot or something that looks weird, stop using it.

Fuses will blow to protect the electronics of the amp. Sometimes when a tube goes, it could take out a resistor with it. If you don't feel comfortable with these things, take it to an amp tech.
