Kustom Guitar

I burnt out a friend's guitar combo amp running it through a bass cab, is there any way to repair it?

A while ago when we were jamming, a friend of mine brought over a cheap Kustom guitar amp (maybe 40W?) I decided that it'd be a grand idea to hook it up (through "Speaker Out" on the combo) to my spare Behringer 2x10 bass cab (450W, 8Ohm) No impedance or wattage requirements were listed next to the jack, either.

They were both on the same circuit, and everything sounded fine, until the amp just shut off, and the light faded. I tried restarting it, but it kept happening, and the amp eventually stopped booting up, even without the cab attached. It seems bricked now; the light doesn't even turn on now.

Did I mismatch the impedance? Was the load too great for the combo amp? Is it fixable? Did I blow the whole amp, or just a fuse? (The cabs came out unscathed) I'm pretty confused, and I just want to get the kid a new amp if I need to.

Without knowing exactly what Kustom amp you were doing this with, I can't tell you exactly what happened.

From your description, it sounds like a classic thermal overload and shutdown. If you had just left it off for 10 or 15 minutes (and disconnected the extra cabinet), it probably would have come back.

Try it again. If it doesn't come back, you likely blew an output device from repeatedly trying to turn it on.

You owe someone a repair or an amp. If it's a blown output device, you're probably looking at around $100 to fix it (assuming that's all that was damaged).

Good luck.
