amp questions
    #4386400 - 07/09/05 11:36 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

my practice amp ( not like i have another kind :p ) was fried in a power surge. Any ideas how much repairing it might cost? I think they'd have to replace the large metallish box connected to the power cable, but i don't know how expensive that could possibly be or even how much a repair shop would charge for labor.

It's a peavey rage selling on musiciansfriend for 88 dollars. Would it be better to repair this one or start looking for a new amp?

sounds like you might as well just get a new one. im not sure on costs though.

but if it was fried once, tis fry again, lol.


--------------------
A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.

This might be the time you buy yourself something nice, something you might use to play shows with later on. Even if u get it repaired, chances are it will blow out again lol.
