Un-Freaking-Believable

so.. finally get around to getting up to radio shack to replace my fuses in my amp. Get home. Get excited, put the fuses in and all that...

then the amp slips out of my hand, and the way it hits the cab, it smashes ALL of the power tubes...

Re: Un-Freaking-Believable

That's why you shouldn't text while carrying an amp...

Peavey Blue voodoo

When it rains, it pours.

Just watch out for glass shrapnel, use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to get inside corners. I'd check the sockets for any damage, too, in case the base and pins from the tubes placed undue stress on them. Better to be safe than sorry.

Happy hunting for new tubes....... and get spares

Re: Un-Freaking-Believable

Sell it, buy an Axe-FX for scraps. Many are dumping them while waiting for Axe-FX II. Less tubes, I promise!

Peavey Blue Voodoo??

You mean Crate?

Sucks about the tubes though >_x

One day I was rocking my Mesa and it had so much bass, it knocked my Orange TT off the 4x12 it was sitting on lol, didn't hurt it though...it did this twice, you'd think i'd learn a lesson! Those suckers are build like tanks!

Re: Un-Freaking-Believable

Oh man, lol I had just found that wolfgang, so I had peavey on the brain haha, YES crate blue voodoo lol

Lol yeah, it just sucks, because it was totally my fault completely. The tubes on the BV's have a good shield that would prevent that normally so im just an idiot lol
