    Sound like symptoms of a bad \ dead battery. You could replace with new 9v Alkaline or invest some more and buy a rechargeable 9v Ni-mh battery with charger so you can charge every time battery gets low.

Have you checked that it is not the amp that is the problem? This is a fairly common thing to have the amp heat up and the thermal protection shut it down partly. Since the bass drops, a loose connection or bad guitar cable can cause that. If the signal becomes capacitively coupled only the treble will come through and be very distorted. Try a new cable. For the guitar, open the electronics area and look for loose or broken wire.

How new is the amp?

A single faulty solder can do that...I'd try returning in to the seller.
Have you tried a different amp with the same equipment?

Sounds like a wiring issue.

It has something loose on the board or where the speaker wires connect. Combo amps are really bad about doing this. The vibrations from the speakers loosen the components on the board.

It plays for about 30 minutes and then just stops, as if overheating. After a cooldown period, it starts up again for another short period. Suggestions? Any recommended vents I could cut in...


The small Fender products often have a TDA2050 power chip in them. The chip is on a thin aluminum heatsink and is intended for light use. If you try to sound like a bass guitar amp with this, the chip will go into thermal protection mode. Cutting vents will not help very much, and pushing it to these levels will destroy the speaker eventually. If you need more power, buy a bigger amp. This one would be suitable for a 10 foot by 10 foot room.

The pickup on my epiphone pr5 booms if i play loud, and if i tap the body anywhere it scratches and booms even with new battery


Sounds like you are using incorrect settings on the amp you are using. Try all tone controls at 12 o'clock as a start. Excess bass boost is a good way to have the problem occur. Also back off the volume control. "Handling" noise or scratching from handling the guitar is NORMAL for this type pickup. Back down the volume and DO NOT boost the highs or lows to help with the handling noise problem.

Sounds a lot like a poor connection on a PCB connector. A whack on the side may produce a similar result, then you know it is something like this. If so, it will be even a challenge for a tech to pinpoint.

After the volume drops off, let the unit sit idle for a minute and then try it again. If the volume has restored for another brief period, suspect the filter caps are weak and voltage drops when you start driving the unit. In any case you need to have it serviced. Unless you can see the heater in a tube going out with vibration this may not be a DIY repair. If you see purple glow in a tube, replace it.

Replace the batteries in the guitar. As they near the end of life they will collapse and then recover some if the load is removed for an hour. Also, check the amp is not the problem... often times they have a heat sensor that backs them down till they cool off. Hve another guitar to immediately try with the amp.

Amp volume drop with flabby bass sound.


1) can happen if the speaker is dying - voice coil defective or magnet needs recharging. happens sometimes with low quality speakers. 
2) faulty pre-amp section can reduce overall gain resulting in lower output volume.
3) for old amps dry solders in pre-amp & power amp section can have the same effect.
4) faulty coupling and filter capacitors can severely effect frequency response too.

It unfortunately sounds like a blown speaker. Try getting at the speaker and gently moving the cone with your fingers. If you feel a rubbing sensation you will most likely have to consider a new speaker. Make sure you get one with the same impedance (ohms) and the same or better power handling.
