FDP Forum / Amp Mods, Repairs, and Projects / Amp volume loss



Sep 23rd, 2016 02:07 PM   Edit   Profile   Print Topic   Search Topic

I currently own a Laney cub 12r head and while playing at a gig suddenly the volume goes down approximately 50% and sounds like a fuzz with low batt.
I changed all the tubes and still get the problem. It happens after a while of playing at loud volume. then i turn the amp off for a minute and back on, and it's good for a little while.
I can't seem to pinpoint the problem.
Any suggestions?

I guess it will have a low spec, single sided, non-through hole plated pcb?
If so then maybe a solder joint is has failed.
I suggest a close examination of the board, using strong light and visual magnification. Pay particular attention to joints that are subject to stress, from sources such as heat, current, voltage, vibration.
