Hey guys, I have a tube Laney VC30 with an intermittent speaker wire. Each time the volume drops am I damaging the amp? I know I need to replace it but I just can't find the time. Thanks.

Yes, absolutely. It's stressing your output transformer. Don't use the amp until you can fix it.

If you have the time to play the amp you have time to replace a simple cable. Replacing OT's isn't cheap, replacing a cable is.

yeah, output transformer is most expensive thing on amp. if you wanna know what you are doing to your amp then cover your mouth and plug your nose and breath out as hard as you can. notice that light headed/pressure feeling in your head with your ears ready to pop? that is what your output transformer feels like.
