Umm... how exactly did it "**** out" on you?

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

getting the amp fixed would probably be the most cost effective choice

That is hands-down the coolest thing I've heard of an amp doing... ever.

B-52 pyrotechnics ftw!

Ring the company, and nicely explain how your amp just singed half of your wall. Even if there's no warranty on it, common decency leads me to believe they would replace something that caught on fire..


Edit

Ignore me, I just googled it and realised.

Can always try, but my suggestion would be either a 2nd hand 5105 or a bugera

'Practice amp' = amp you practice with? In my case, Peavey 6505+ and 4x12

For bedroom only, check out a Blackstar head. Run your B-52 as a cab for it.

^It's fake lol. A marketing thing by Bugera I guess, to show that their tone "rocks your world" or something of that nature. Their marketing team is a bunch of monkeys if you ask me, because that only makes me want to stay away from their amps.

If that pic really came from Bugera then they are smoking crack. I don't see how they think that is funny with some of the issues they've had in the past.

TS - I'm really curious as to what might have caused this to your amp. Did you ever notice one or both power tubes get real bright?

Oh well,

Hey - I'm not sure where in Jersey you are exactly but these might be worth a look. I realize some are a bit over budget and may not fit you exactly but they are worth a look, stretch, talk down, etc.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

I found it here on UG, so idk where it came from. Looks like a Bugera picture and with the whole "Bugera Incident" tape it makes it really tool-esque and Bugera-y. I still love the 1990 though.
