My 1995 BD has started cutting out intermittently. When it does, the red light for the drive channel comes on, even though I am using the clean channel. Any suggestions?<br /> <br /> Thanks,<br /> <br /> Colin

My amp tech replaced the filter caps and replaced a couple of resistors with higher amperage resistors of the same ohm value. Just got it back so will be testing it for cutting out!

About as ordinary as you can get.

I think there may be some good YT videos on BD maintenance.

Assuming tubes are okay, the Plate load resistors on the Phase inverter are very likely. Tech job.

I had the same thing happening on my 90's BD when I played it hard. If you played it at normal volume it didn't happen but when you played loud and if there was a huge abrupt change in volume it would cut out. I never did figure out the reason why. I just sold it to Guitar Center for $300. Fortunately the guy testing it didn't crank it when I brought it in.<br /> I do remember swapping tubes and spraying contact cleaner in the sockets and pots didn't help.

I played two gigs this weekend with the amp (after replacing caps and a few resistors) and everything worked as it should. It's over 20 years old so I guess caps are getting tired at that point.

Cool! Happy ending!
