So, my lead guitarist's Laney GH100L got fried at the last gig. I haven't yet come to a conclusive diagnosis, but from the outside everything looks fine. Powers on, valves heat up ok, but no sound!

Apparently there was a burning smell when the amp broke down, if that means anything?

Could it just be the valves finally gone? (they were quite old)

My other amp can run Crysis
This is trippy as man my Laney GH100L did exactly the same thing at my last gig. It was a problem with the biasing of the tubes, so the tubes kept blowing (I assume because they were running too hot) when you put them in. I had exactly the same symptoms. It's unlikely to be electronics related, as you would still get some sound. Check the fuses too, because that's a really easy fix.

I have my Laney for sale now you wanna buy it?

Don't know, I'd assume OT if it's a burning smell.

Cath needs to come to the rescue.

That's the advantage of being such a distance from Yianni. I can continue to live my life without fear of stumbling upon his dark terror.
