ricky_vato Posted July 23, 2018 Share Posted July 23, 2018 I bought a used Amplifi 150 to quickly get the tones I needed for a show. Used it on a gig and the amp burnt out after the 3rd song. It was working fine before. Lucky I had a more reliable Gallien Krueger as a backup along with a Boss multi-effects pedal. Turns out, the main PCB burnt up. Very easy to see and access behind the rear panel. I called Full Compass who say on their website they have one in stock. I call and they do not have it in stock saying they have to order from Line 6 with no ETA when they will receive it. So I called Line 6. I'm told they have one in stock, but I have to order from a service center or send it in to a center for repair. Local repair centers are asking $100 to $200 labor to replace a board. Really?? I live not far from Line 6 and I have to order from Wisconsin to get just the PCB and wait almost a month to get the part? I call local service centers and get voicemails, or "We don't know the price, but will call Line 6 and determine a price for you" Really? Yamaha was not like this. You could call them, order a part, and go to Will Call, and not miss your next show. I was going to use the Amplifi to quickly emulate artists' songs as I do many tribute shows in different genres. How hard is it to pick at least one place geographically to order parts if Line 6 does not have the resources to do so? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
