PV transtube WHAT 112?

You got an FX loop?  Plug a cord from send to return.  ANy help?   Got a preamp out next to a power amp in jack?   Plug a cord from pre out to power in.  ANy help?   Got an "insert" jack on the front?   Plug something in and out of that a couple times.  Does that bring the sound back?  or if the amp was OK at first, does thart make it act up? (Note: it will cut out the signal while a plug is in the insert jack.  SO just poke in and out.)


OK, it is a Bandit.

Looks to me like it has both sets of jacks - pre/power and the FX loop.  DO the tests.
