So i have a Peavey 5150 head and everything is good cuz i love that amp...
until last weekend at band practice...

Somethings either loose in it or somethings just flat out wrong
It sounds like a cell phone signal is going through the amp but its coming out distorted which isnt normal and its really really really really loud and annoying

So i took it to my guitarshop and ironically, this is the only piece of gear i bought from there without a warranty (bad luck?) hahaha

but the guy said my "chassy is loose" so idk what this means but its gonna be a 60-100 usd repair

any ideas guys?

the chassis is loose? well i honestly don't know what that means, but id pay to get i fixed by a pro, rather than try and possibly bugger the amp more, which would be a bad thing

I know the chassis of a car is the frame of it.. or whatever.. So it's probably the outer housing?

But if it sounds like a cellphone is probably isn't just that.. could be something electrical.

The chassis is basically the metal part of the amp with all the knobs that houses all the guts. The last time I had a loose chassis it took about ten minutes with a multimeter and a screwdriver to fix.

Not a hard fix....but at the same time, it could be a tube going out. When was your last retube? Tubes make wierd noises when dying
