DT50 Cutting out at high volumes

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, haha I hoped I would have missed the bullet with this amp but nah. At practice yesterday it was fine then the volume started fading in and out rapidly and I could hear a pop each time it happened. Turned it down and it went away, turned it back up to 12 o clock same thing but worse. Couldnt see any of the settings changing while it happened, had a look at the tubes while it was faulting to see if they were glowing red or crackling or anything. Cant visually see anything wrong with the board or tubes, all connections look good. Wondering if anybody has had this before? Bad tubes? Bad relay? Output transformer? I'm a bit lost to be honest. It was running the ENGL preamp from the pod, channel volume at 12 o clock, master at 12, topology 3. I tried disconnecting the pod and my wireless and plugging straight in at first just in case it was that. But yeah sounds like tubes are dying or she needs to go to the shop, if its tubes easy, if its other stuff, I'll be returning it. Only had it for like 2 months

I had similar symptoms with my DT50. I learned and put new original tubes in it, biased it to spec as close as I could and it ended up going back to Line 6 to get fixed. I created a thread on it quite a while ago.

 

You should call Line 6 techs.
