My Vetta Combo has died on me!!

Recommended Posts

Hello There!!

 

I am new to this forum so please excuse me if i am asking silly question or i am not on the right place lol I have purchased a second hand  Vetta Combo with and extra cabinet and FBX floorboard about 3 moths ago . It was working fine up until this afternoon. I was editing my channels ( user) when suddenly the channel i was working on went blank. At this point the factory settings were working ok then 5 minutes later they disappeared too and the combo freezed on one channel. Not responding to anything , no sound only blank screen. Could anybody help? in worst case can i use this as a cabinet so i could get and amp head?? Thank you

A good tech could probably repair your amp for you. I suggest you check out the Vetta user group on facebook. Lots of good info there and maybe a line on where you could get your amp fixed. https://www.facebook.com/groups/647483512018911/

The Vetta uses a battery. Perhaps your battery died. They last about ten years. They are a pain to replace.

Sad to hear about your loss.  I've been there. 

 

In my case, I was playing (on my combo) then all of a sudden a loud pop and smoke...then nothing.

 

It took over 1 year for the closest repair facility to "get me in" (Chicago)...and I had to drive the 100+ miles to drop it off and pick it up.

I took a look at the battery replacing procedure and its not too bad. A decent repair shop could bang it out fairly quickly. Worst part would be taking the chassis out - lollipoper is heavy. :)

Tried the link, not there. There are those on FB who have posted

on the subject of Vetta amps.

 

Yes, like brue58ski said, there is that battery to be checked out.

 

Try Mark Wright Music in Northampton. Mark was my opposite number

at Line 6 UK in Rugby, back when we had a location there. He knows

these amps, he can help.
