Here is a question for the people that know a bit about amps...

Sometimes when I play my DSL for a bit and put it onto standby there is a massive pop, I've heard it's just the caps discharging but I just want to make sure it's nothing serious. It doesn't do it always.

That's normal - generally they seem to do it more if you're on the lead channel though. Basically you can try putting it back on the clean channel, turn the volume all the way down, wait about 15 seconds, then put it on standby...if it still does it, it's nothing to worry about anyway.

Cheers James, I didn't think it was anything serious but it's nice to be sure.

Yeah, a massive amount of trust would be involved. But like Tom says, I'll have the home address and I have some massive mates

Any change with that 'pop' ?

Nothing to worry about though - since my amp was doing it quite loudly, I took it in and they said it was normal. It's a modern Marshall head as well.


Anyone who can help...is there a 'proper' height to set your pickups at? Or is it best to do it by ear? I'm finding this can change the sound a fair bit...

do it by ear. i think it depends on the power of the pickup really.

I've been doing what you said and turning the volume down for a few secs after using it and the pops have pretty much stopped, I get a small one every now and again but that's it. Thanks for the advice James.

I'd be surprised if a water-based smoke machine messed with his voice (usually the oil ones) but you'd probably be better off with a hazer anyway...
Smoke - thick clouds that fill the room, used more as an effect
Dry ice - thick clouds that hang around your feet = effect
Hazer - literally a haze that shows light beams/etc but shouldn't interfere with singing and doesn't coat everything in oil/glycerine/etc... It also hangs around a lot longer than smoke so you're not constantly covered in large billowing clouds

Haha that could be a description of you! "It even stays after you've gone home, sometimes even lingering for days!"

Bring a laser-suit next time

No, they just worked out what days they were going to 'have' me, then fed me and got me drunk You weren't there to protect me from them, I was lucky to have got out
