    happened to me once... every time I picked my tele up it sounded thin and lifeless...... this went on for a few days and i thought it was just me/my mood...

    Until i actually went over and looked at my amp settings.....:eek:

    my reverb was zeroed....o_O....

    turned it back to it's normal spot... strummed a chord.... and there it was...tone... oh, yeah...:cool::D

    Always check and set/reset your settings. I swear I’ve had stuff change when it really shouldn’t have. Maybe it was the cats, dogs, seismic events, poltergeists, jumbies, or just life

    Always check your settings.....or not. It’s your call

    Check the settings. It's the cats. Trust me.

    Simon the Cat (RIP) managed to turn on my 18W Marshall clone, and it sat there like that for some days or weeks before I discovered it, by which time it was fried.

    I've asked myself this question when playing outdoor gigs, only to discover that I had a pedal engaged that shouldn't have been, but I couldn't see the LED because of the sun.

    Hi.

    Yeah, I can't figure out what happened here.

    It was like, went to bed, it was fine, woke up, filed some brass off under both E string ends of my Gotoh compensated saddles to lower the action a bit more, did the intonation, fired the untouched amp up, and everything sounded wrong. So, I was looking elsewhere for the problem for a bit.

    Still no idea how the switch changed.

    Hi.

    I find this to be very true. Although with the hot switch on, it sounded way too different from the normal drift in amp or perception I typically experience.

    But, there's a lesson to be learnt here. Whether I learn it or not...

    I have the same problem with my wah. "Why do I suddenly sound like crap? Oh, didn't turn the wah all the way off..."
