Graemey Posted June 12, 2017 Share Posted June 12, 2017 Second time I've had this problem, so thought I'd share it here. Two days ago I was gigging my Helix and L2T set up, playing a rockabilly gig with my Gretsch Balck Falcon hollow body. Basically, the guitar pushes out some real low-end punch and thump. During the gig I noticed my L2T was distorting and sounded like I'd blown a speaker. Not too drastic, but harsh and farty when I dug in or played hard rhythm. I signaled a guy over and asked how it sounded out front through the PA and he confirmed it was crystal clear so I knew it was an issue with the L2T. When I returned home I plugged my Strat into the same set-up and right away I heard the high frequency driver cutting in and out (muffled sound, bright sound, muffled sound, bright sound...) I've had that problem about a year ago, so I unscrewed the rear panel and carefully pushed the speaker lead clips firmly back into place and made sure the other connectors were pushed home. I plugged back in and all was perfect. I tried my Gretsch and all was cool. Next gig in four days so I seriously hope the driver cutting in/out problem was related to the "blown speaker" sound.
