Firehawk 1500 lost its tone


Recommended Posts

HI all, Have been using my Firehawk 1500 for a few years now for gigging and home practice with no issues. I plugged in yesterday and suddenly all my guitar tones just sound the same, just very thin, no drive. really tinny sound.

If I plug headphones in then the tone is there - sounds perfect, it's only when using the speakers it looses all tone.

I can also play music through the speakers absolutely fine - no issues with sound - only when I plug in guitar, I have tried a Variax guitar direct in and also going through the guitar in with a non variax and the sound has gone awful - any ideas?

I’m experiencing this exact same issue. The only difference is that it happens to me when I first power on the Firehawk 1500 - thin sound, very thin, almost no volume or drive. It does somehow come back after a while of being powered on (full sound through the speakers). Just started doing this about 2 months ago, after years of flawless use. I love my Firehawk 1500 - perfect amp, but I can’t trust it to perform at the moment. Any solutions or ideas?
