Whenever i turn off my Laney VC15, i turn down all the volume controls as the manual tells you to. But still the amp makes a loud 'pop' sound when it shuts off. Now, I haven't had any problems with the amp, but i've heard this isn't a good sign. Is it a bad thing in the long run?

BUMP cmon, i posted this nearly an hour ago. please, someone answer.

it could be the electrics on the guitar, often times old or abused elctrics cause that kind of sounds. try the guitar on another amp and see if it goes away, if not, I'd say you have 2 options

Take amp to local store, get repaired

Buy new amp

I don't know the answer, but the guitar clearly has nothing to do with this.

No it doesn't, my guitar wasn't plugged in and the circuit breaker button was pressed in on my lead.

It's probably the capacitors draining, which is completely normal. You should try taking it in and getting it checked out just to make sure though.

His is a tube amp though. It's an entirely different issue.

First - don't go bumping after 20 bloody minutes. This ain't irc.

Second - try turning the amp to standby for a minute or so (unplug the guitar, put it away, whatever) and turning power off. That works for me, no pop - if I turn the power down straight away I get a pop.

Its normal, to prevent it you would have to install a standby switch...


This.

As long as it's not loud enough to blow your speaker I wouldn't worry.

When I posted there weren't any replies (I opened up a lot of threads and read them first). Then I tried googling for whether it had or not, I thought it might not. Oh well
