Ladies and Gentlemen;

I've a Carvin AG-300 amp that has an intermittent and loud as hell white noise that comes and goes. It's level is controlled by the master volume, not affected by the channel preamp volumes. Re-boot the amp, and it's gone until it comes back again. Carvin has gone tits-up and doesn't repair this amp anymore.

Does anybody have any inside information on some electronics guy or gal who does this kind of repair? I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one with this situation.

Peace
Paul K

Paul, You might post your info on the Feel Free to Ask Myles thread. He always has great advice and maybe he can steer you in the right direction. You'll probably need a tech if you want to repair it. Hopefully Caevan will chime in as he has a Carvin and can share his history with you...good luck with it!
