Ive got a late model Peavy B-112 50 watt amp. I don't play bigger because my apartment is about the size of an outhouse. SO here is what it is doing.

Playing in Open C-Tuning, have the amp turned about to about 6-7 overall gain, and when I hit really fat notes, where i should get that nice big bass tone (so nice), instead my amp kinda makes a farty/rattle/distorted noise. And dont say "its busted" or "your screwed" and stuff, cuz I kinda figured that lol. but i like to tinker and do new things, so any thoughts on whats wrong and what i need to fix. I dont mind taking it apart, as long as i can get it back together and fixed.

Your speaker might be blown. Push on it VERY GENTLY and if it fells like its scraping something, then you need a new one.

Speakers are easy. 2 wires that usually just have spade connecters that come apart and some screws
Do you know what size your speaker is?

Your amp has a low res knob. Turn it down.
Pain is an illusion.
