Well it actualy IS a spider so that might be it , but it might be some internal problem.
No idea though.

do they have any kind of tubes in it at all, like the preamp or anything? if so you may need to replace it

no they don't.

maybe you accidentally turn your guitar's volume ??

O.o can you describe this "Loudness" as in does it get loud with distort, or does it get loud only with a certain effect being used?

Also watch out, people seem to hate spiders here. so you might get some flaming in here, don't take it personal

I agree it's probally annoying, So it's just the master volume? How long have you owned it, and did you buy it new or old?

i've had my eye on the mesa boogie line, my price range is under $600.

maybe you could buy a picture of one for 600, and just pretend for awhile...

IIRC, someone posted a thread like this not too long ago and they figured out that the vibration from the volume of the amp was messing with the master volume knob...

This could be true, One of the reasons i asked how old it was, due to the fact that the older they are the more loose some parts could get.

Ah for goodness sake people, give up the flaming. It's really getting old.

Unless it only happens when you're changing channel, i've no clue.

I'd say ask in the shop you bought it in.

Your problem is that you own a poor quality amp

Might be a dirty volume pot. Clean all the pots (the thing the knobs turn, looks like a coin) and the input and output jacks with contact cleaner. Unplug the amp and allow to dry before trying. Good luck.

Thank yah man, at least your with me on this flameing stuff.

Yah try cleaning out the pots and the jacks. Also check and see if anything is obsessivly loose. maybe even put some tape over the volume knob and see if it's moving at all.

The title of this thread made me LoL.

seriously though, try resetting the amp. Otherwise sell it and get something better.
