RG 100 classic Hums and lost it's "Low End" frequencies
« on: September 13, 2015, 04:23:43 PM »
I've had this amp for years and just yesterday I plugged in to play and noticed a fairly loud hum.  You can't hear the hum when you play, BUT the low end frequencies are almost non-existent now and my tone is very "tinny" sounding now.  Someone told me that it could be a grounding issue.  Anything I can do find the root cause?  Or should I just take it to someone to fix?

My commander head started doing something similar and my buddy found a broken solder joint on one of the resistors.  Replaced it and now it's fine.  There can be many culprits to your situation.  If you are handy around electronics, take a look.  If not, take it for repair.  There's not much to these things.  Usually easy fixes.  Can be a little time consuming to find the issue though.
