Amp issues

alright this whole post is just gonna lack useful information I'll get more tomorrow but my friend has a problem with his amp where it randomly switches from channel A to channel B and vice versa, just whenever it feels like it apparently, any vague ideas of what the problem is?

Sounds like he needs to replace the cable from the amp to the channel foot switch. I had the exact same thing happen to me at a show a couple of weeks ago and the cable turned out to be the culprit. To check, have him unplug the foot switch and play for a little while to see if the amp still misbehaves. My guess is that it won't.

If the cable isn't replacable (ie built into the footswitch) then it's probably time for a new foot switch.

yea thats what I figured this amp sounds fairly old its a celestion, like the front of the amp says celestion its a 2x12 with you guessed it celestions, but I've never seen a celestion brand amp before, celestion speakers in everything but an amp, first time for everything I guess I'll take a look at the footswitch.
