mine did that right before the tubes completely burned out, so check the tubes. If they are ok then take it to a shop and have them look at it.

you should hope thats the only thing wrong with it, since itll be cheaper and easier to replace them than to fix some weird wiring problem or something simmilar.

the amp is a carvin v3 and is a year old brand new. Umm if not groove tubes, what tubes are good for a crisp sound but also a nice heavy sound at the same time for lows. i think thre are like 12 tubes? in it

but if youve only had the amp a year you might want to get it looked at under warranty, although changing the tubes might make it sound better anyway.
