so this is the story about 5 months ago i bought a marshall mg100dfx. ive had ,amy jam sessions since then and the amp worked like a jem. but about 2 weeks ago i left it at a mates house we think that the power line was struck by lightning and now my amp, my lead guitarists amp (exactly the same as mine) doesnt work. they both turn on but no sound can be heard even when all the gain and volume knobs are on full

Honestly, it's a friggen Mg. Why should you give a ****. This is a sign you desperatly need a new amp. Just screw it and go amp shopping.

Well the only thing we can say is take it to an amp tech. Go to your local music store, if they dont have an amp tech they can point you in the right direction. But if it was struck by lightning it doesnt sound very hopefull

That is why you never leave your amp plugged in. And, God purposely struck down the amp. It was time you saw the light...

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

Well you can leave it plugged in, just use a surge protecter or power conditioner to make sure nothing happens in bad weather.



Sorry, I phrased that wrong. I ment to say when you aren't playing it...

Even then you can leave it plugged in with a power conditioner.



Yeah, it is only an MG. But, I really trust nothing to protect my stuff. And plus, my amp stays in it's cases unless I am playing it. So, the power cable stays in my cable bag...

I have a huge one that fits all my adaptors and amp power cables, my phone charger, my stereo....

It's awesome. I highly suggest you get one, TS.

Lightning can really screw up SS stuff. And getting it fixed will probably not be cheap if even possible. And surge protectors dont always work so well the cheap ones dont stop much in the way of lightning. And even then lightning can find ways around sometimes. Lightning hit my house surge protector stopped it from coming thru the wall socket but it just went thru the cable wire thru the box back down the power cord and fried my XBox plugged into the power strip. So looks like your going to be in the market for an amp.
