Attached File  MaestroAmpSchematic1.jpg (49.08K)
Number of downloads: 174I have a Maestro set that came with a Roadie (mini Flying V) guitar and a Mini Amp. The amp has a problem. When I plug in the guitar, all I hear through the speaker is some clicking noises. When I plug in headphones, I do hear the guitar overdriven (sounds like it's at max overdrive). It also sounds overdriven on the "on" or clean switch setting. Note, the guitar sound comes only through headphones, not on the speaker.

Here's another symptom. Again, through headphones, when I stop playing the guitar, I hear a low tone that sounds sort of like a low sine wave generated sound. It slowly rises until it stops at a higher (though not high) pitch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't have any expertise in amp repair. Am afraid that having a technician look at this would cost much more than the amp is worth. Thank you so much.

From just the information you have provided, this is very much true.
