K, well I heard a couple of good reviews about the spider III 75, so I got it. Now I've seen the Peavey VYPYR and I can't return my spider to the store without a fault.
Any ideas and do you reckon it will work?

EDIT
I decided to wait till the Peavey VYPYR comes fully into the UK, then do a part exchange. Then never go to the store again. EVER.
But honestly, I'm surprised no1 suggested switching it on and off loads really quickly.

drop it in water.

actually not as stupid idea as it sounds. my friends does this with his ipods, labtops and phones wen he wants a new one, dries it for a couple of days and says that humidity leaked into it or sumthing. mite not work for an amp, idk, but it works for my friend all of the time

The coiled magnet makes the sound go to the amplifier affectively, and is hard to fix, so u will probs get ur money back.
#11
Put it in a trash bag, make it air tight. Turn it on and make it overheat. A guy at a game store told me to do this to get a new xbox. Lol.
#12
playing random crap at full volume with every effect on it is then.
will it work with headphones?

If you can get inside the amp, try cutting a wire for a knob and say that the knob doesnt work. thats just what i would do

take soldering iron to one of the wires, and just undo it a little

turn it on
plug it in
cover it in blankets
play as loud as possible
wait till it over heats

do this outside. could be pretty loud and casue possible hearing damage

Possibly but you would blow the headphones...

I agree with the guy above if you do, cover it in blankets and crap and do it outside.

I'm so ****ing sick of the whole mentality that the big music store can afford this shit. I saw another thread where a kid was saying he liked to buy guitars, play em a month, then return them.

Every time you do this, the store takes a loss. Every time the store takes a loss, you're SCREWING someone. Do you think a big chain like Guitar Center takes the hit? Most often, it hits on the store level, and is costing some hard working shmuck manager his bonus, salary, or worst - his job.

If there was a problem with the amp, return it. The store should make good for selling you defective merchandise. If there's nothing wrong, then CONGRATULATIONS! You made a choice on an amp, bought it, and got exactly what you paid for. Don't be a dick now and stiff some music store because you were too stupid to think through your decision BEFORE you buy.

After reading my post, if you're still a big enough jerk to still try this, be warned: Blowing up your amp is not a "flaw", it's user-error. Most stores will tell you to go screw, and you'll be stuck with a broken amp.

Just sell it used, and buy the amp you want. Just make sure it's the one you want this time.

You could have thought twice about it, and you didn't. It's your problem, and if you break it, they're most likely to repair it, or replace it.

dont put the store down what you should do is sell the amp 50bucks cheaper than what you got it for then make up the cash diffrence then buy new amp everyone will be happy at final result maybe not at the earning more $$ part though

does the store you bought the spider from have the amp you want? Ask them if they'll do a part exchange, then see how much money you need

Don't they put like some kind of paper in them so make sure you dont do crap like this? I think they put litmus paper in there to see if it's been wet or not lol

Well if you can find a wire that's not in too obvious of a spot just give it a tiny yank. Tell them you were playing and then the next time you went to play it just died.

But really I'd just sell it for $50-100 less on ebay then what you bought it for, sure it's a loss but if the store doesn't believe you you're stuck with a broke amp and no cash.

I agree with this, but we probably can't stop you. Just don't like drop it or something, music stores can tell if an amp was broken on purpose.

how long have you had the amp for? even though they say 7 day return i always thought it was 28 days you had to return something? they might not give a refund but they may let you swap it if you have not had it for long, i know when i returned an mg for a vox in a shop in glasgow it was about 2 weeks, guy didnt even want to see the reciept
#33
I hope you break your amp and the store wont take it back. You should have thought about what you want before you bought it. And if the store finds out that you're trying to scam them they could prosecute you for fraud or something. Just sell it on for a bit less then you bought it for. Somebody will get in trouble for this. Probably you

True. Ever heard of franchising TS? Do you really think that a GC in a little town in Kansas are going to give their employees the exact amount of cash as the biggest in LA? Don't be an asshole.

try putting a magnet on the back of it where it is "magneticy" and where the magnet is attracted to it. i used to have a metal box in the back of an old amp of mine and then i left for three weeks. came back and the amp straight up didn't work. it would turn on and no volume came out. i blame it on the metal box but it could have been something else.
#38
i'm with the seagull, that arr0whead dude and ippon. don't do it, it's fraud. you may feel they've gipped you by selling you a crappy amp (and they probably have), but 2 wrongs don't make a right, your screwing them could end up losing someone his/her job. and that might not even be the person who sold you the amp. as said, if you screw a big company, they'll probably pass on the screwing to the little guy somewhere along the line.
