    Amp Question.

    I have a Peavey Classic 30 that I use at home. Love it. I plugged in the other day and....nothing. The tubes are hot, power lights are on, but nothing. Any suggestions?

    Are you getting any noise at all through the speaker, or is it completely silent?

    Check the speaker wires. Sometimes the spade connectors that attach to the speaker fall off.

    I would seriously hope that you checked that first, however, second step is to check your guitar on an amp that you know works, third step is to go through you amp with a volt meter WHILE IT IS UNPLUGGED! If you dont know how to do it contact me I'll help you out
    Please get out of my VH t-shirt before you jinx the band and they break up.

    With Amps one of two things, blown fuse or the jack plug in needs some work.

    Usually the power light and the tubes don't glow too much when the fuse is blown.

    I tried two different cables and guitars. Both guitars and cables work on other amps.

    Okay then. The amp is working, the speaker is not. If it's completely silent, that means the connection from the amp to the speaker is separated. Does anyone know what the connection from the amp to the speaker is in a Classic 30? If it's as simple as a 1/4", the thing probably just came unplugged. Or it could be a soldering issue... or it could be a bad wire. The good news is it is probably an easy fix.

    Not trying to be a dick, but check the volume on your guitar. It's happened to me. Also, cords not properly plugged in. I spent an entire afternoon convinced that my amp was fucked, only to find out I had the volume on my guitar turned down. I've done that with the volume pedal on my line 6 board also. Go all the way through your chain with a magnifying glass, and make sure the amp isn't on standby. Your probably not a stupid as me though, so good luck with the amp, I hope it's not a major repair.

    As Andrew said, most likely no signel to the speaker...

    hopefully an easy fix unless something popped the peaker so hard that the coil wire seperated from the cone... basically, a blown speaker.

    if the speaker looks hooked up ok, see if you can find someone with an ohm meter and disconnect the speaker and measure across the speaker terminals.

    if it is infinit resistance... it is blown.
