i have a roland cube 40 (real old thing) thats been troublesome lately, i first noticed a burning smell coming from it...then the fuse burnt out. i replaced the fuse but it keeps instantly burning out ...the fuse that first burnt out was 250V this is what came with the amp...but above the fuse holder is says to use a fuse of 150V ...does anyody know what i should be using with that amp?...how worried should i be about the burning smell i smelt and why do you supose it was?
dude,it sounds like the transformer could be crapping out,as it heats up it draws more amps/current causeing the fuse to blow, the burning smell is most likely the transformer,always use the fuse that it calls for replacement,you dont want to cook your wires. hope this helps, peace! g blues
