so i'm not really sure where this belongs, but the amps seemed to be getting hit the hardest, so here it is: i played a gig on friday at a local venue, which i'm not at the moment going to name. three out of four bands were having very strange and fairly serious gear issues. i borrowed an amp from another band playing the gig, because my main amp is in the shop. the first two songs were fine, and the borrowed amp sounds great. then i start getting a thin sound, and the sustain is shot to hell. i start trying to adjust my pedal board, and the whole thing is acting up. i have a clean boost last in line before the amp, which acts as a master volume for the entire thing. i started getting widely varying levels of volume and gain out of my dirt pedals, even with the clean boost on. then the sparkle/top end started getting sucked away. then the amp shut down, and wouldn't come back on, during our second to last song, which ended our set. the next two bands were having issues with their gear, including a bass amp that "kept fading in and out". the headliner managed to get off without much of an issue. this venue has changed it's name in the past few years, and the location of the stage has moved a few times. i really think it's ****ty wiring, and i think the amp i was playing probably blew a fuse due to a power spike. i think my pedals were acting up because of not getting the kind of juice they're used to getting. anyone have any experience with this? this board has some serious road dogs and people who gig a ****-ton locally. i've been either attending or playing shows on a regular basis for over twenty years, and i've never seen anything like this, not even in basements or squatted warehouse spaces or other places that aren't technically "venues".
