  • Fender M-80 combo SQEALS LIKE A GREASED PIG!

    A co-worker of mine is moving this week and while going through his stuff he had a Fender M-80 combo amp that he did not use any more.

    Pic is not mine but the M-80 looks just like this one.


    He knew I played guitar and offered it to me for free. He warned me that when he would plug in his guitar and it would crackle a lot.

    I thought sure...it's free, maybe the crackling wasn't the amp...

    I got it home and turned it on and instantly at Full Volume SQUEEEEEEEEAL!!
    A high pitch sqeal came out of the amp. I turned it off to stop it.
    This is without anything plugged into it!

    I turned down all of the knobs and turned it on again. And again the SQUEEEEL!!!

    I laughed and thought oh well, it was free.

    Does anyone know what this could possibly be?

      Reverb circuit perhaps.

      You could try bypassing it.

        If memory serves, that squeel is what passes for tone on those amps. oke:

        I kid, but the M-80 is not a good sounding amp even when it works.
