Alright, so, last week, my amp caught on fire. I happened to be at my grandparent's house celebrating thanksgiving, so I couldn't take it anywhere till I got back (a 2 hour drive). So, I got back yesterday, and took it to the store where I bought it. They said that something was wrong in the plug thing, and it cause the inside to catch fire.

SO, long story short, they can fix it..... but it's going to take while.

I probably won't have it back till January.

This is driving me crazy. I can't even hear my guitar while trying to tune it, because of the constant background noise of my house.

Any suggestions to keep me from going insane?

Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

Porn.

Or just get an electronic tuner and work on technique.

Or a small backup amp that won't blow up.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

Something wrong in "the plug thing" you say?

Surely thats just a 5 minute "wire a new plug" jobby
Cut the old one off, put a new one on...

Someones lying to you somewhere.

Don't have one, and don't have any money. (My amp is under warranty, so the repairs are cheap).


And to whoever said that it was a 5 second job, I guess I didn't explain well enough. The internal part of the plug caught on fire. Not the cord, but the plug part INSIDE THE AMP

Essentially, that fried a lot of the internal parts.

If you really want an amp you could borrow one from someone or rent one from a store.

You can't hear your guitar due to background noise when it isn't plugged in? Come on man...shut the windows and doors in a room away from everyone else...or are you living in a Paper Mill or something?
