So I've never been a big DSL fan, fine amp just not for me. Well I decided that I'd give the new version a shot. I ordered a brand spanking new one from an online retailer and it showed up two days later. Plugged her in on half power and started dialing in something I would like. Sounded OK but nothing great. So like I usually do I grabbed my wireless, threw on the full power switch, cranked it up and headed for the living room. I like to noodle while watching TV. After about five minutes of playing on full power it started to cut out. I got up, walked back into my amp room and the whole room smelled like burning plastic. It wasn't the plastic wire insulation that we've all smelled before, it smelled like a burning car. I immediately shut it off and noticed a little stream of smoke coming from the top vent. Not a good sign. Lol. I'm not a tech and I didn't bother to open it up. I just packed it up and called the retailer. They were super cool and sent out a prepaid packing slip. Great since I thought I would be stuck with return shipping. I told them what happened and they asked if I wanted a replacement. I declined another DSL but decided on the SC20H. Should be here on Friday. Between my new to me 2204 and now this, I'm not having good luck with amps lately. Hopefully the third ones a charm. Oh well, its the Fourth of July weekend, I'll just make another drink and try not to blow my fingertips off.
