There was a huge thunderstorm last night, I was playing through my new Vox Valvetronix at the time, and there was a power surge. The amp turned off and then back on really quickly. I don't know if it's damaged, I mean, I can't tell yet, but I mean I'm just worried the sound quality would have been damaged.

Just wondering if a small 2 second surge could affect the amp? should I not worry???

You should probably, you know, get a surge protector. Also, not playing during a storm is probably a good idea. To your question though, you most likely would already notice a problem if there was one so you should be fine.

okay, i was just worried because it was an expensive and brand new amp. i mean, it still functions, i was just afraid something like the speaker would be affected and the tone wouldnt be as good

Hopefully a fuse would blow before any damage comes to your amp from surges. If it is functioning ok now, then its likely no harm came to your amp.

+1,000 even with surge protectors, up until i got this monsterous APC unit (with batter backup), which is next ran into another round of surge protecters into my amps, i would unplug every time there was a storm, or whenever not in use.
