Yes, I have an AVT. No, I don't like it. I'll have an all tube peavey in a few days. Until then, I"m using my AVT50x halfstack.

My problem: I'm playing on the clean channel, and out of nowhere some distortion blasts through for about a second then it's gone. I wasn't looking at the amp when it happened (it's happened a few times). There is a dramatic volume boost and distortion out of nowhere. Is it the amp or possibly my effects?

Gibson SG (with onboard overdrive) -> DigiTech Grunge -> CH-1 -> crybaby -> amp

Any help is appareciated.

what kind of onboard overdrive is in the guitar? That's the first place I would look.

it's from guitarfetish.com. I actually had it off when I was playing and this happened today. It's usually on clean boost when I'm playing, and was on clean boost a few times when I have heard it before.

hmm, guess the grunge could be something to look at too. Have you tried keeping the OD1 and OD2 channels with minimal volume/gain to see if it's the actual amp changing channels on you? Maybe there is a problem with the footswitch. Maybe try using only the amp and see if it does the same thing so you can narrow it down.

I would do that, but it only happens like once a week and only for a split second. SInce it did it to me today, it probably won't happen again for a while. Or it could happen in 5 minutes, I have no clue.
