    Please help, I have a B-52 AT-100 tric-rec head that just went out on me this past weekend. It was apparently hooked up wrong by someone who didn't know what they were doing with the amp hooked to 16ohm on the selector for the head running to 4ohm mono on the cab. The head crapped out and blew...

    I'm Micah and I've got a B-52 AT-100 tri-rec head that just went out on me at a gig last weekend after I stupidly let someone help me set it up (as we were pressed for time) and I went through it today, replaced the fuse (which didn't pop and none of the other tubes went, which I thought was...

    Okay, I'm an idiot for buying a Chinese Ampeg instead of saving up for a vintage model because this thing has a buzz that won't quit-I changed the tube yesterday but it still hums-I don't think it's the speaker connection because the D.I. has a hum too-Any ideas? Thanks
