Sounds like the pick gnomes having a fireworks display.


Have you tested the amp with different guitars? It may just be your guitar or cables instead.

Are your speakers still alright? If so, it sounds like maybe something arcing inside of it.

yes i definitely know its not the guitar/cables/pedals. I've tried every cable and every guitar i own. How can i tell if it's the speakers? I may have damaged them when i played an acoustic guitar through it (not a good idea) and it feedbacked like crazy, but that was months ago.

Well, it'll probably be easier (At least with my knowledge) to check if somethings arcing first. Does it smell bad when the noise is made, if you can't smell anything, take the chassis from the amp box and check for burnt parts.

check the terminals on the speakers, a wire may be loose

My friend had a similar problem with his amp, but it was a stack. I think it turned out the lead from the head to the cabinet was dodgy. Sorry mate, not sure if that helps...
