    I cleaned up the pots and jacks on my bandit, and it sounds killer for like 10 minutes then the sound drops off. I can turn it off then back on and it is good for another 10 or so minutes then no sound. Any idea on what's going on?

    If it's a bad solder joint, good chance it's in the FX loop.

    I guess I'll have to take it out of the chassis to further investigate. Thanks guys.
