Sad story from a fellow musician

Posted on: Sunday, May 20, 2007

I received this today from a sad and worried musician who is looking for some advice and guidance on his troubles…..

I am a working musician and I travel a lot. I have been noticing strange things happening when I get home. My wife’s mobile phone rings and she steps outside to answer it or she says, ‘I’ll call you back later’.

When I ask her who called she gets evasive. Sometimes she goes out with friends but comes home late, getting dropped off around the corner and walking the rest of the way.

A buddy of mine plays guitar in a band. He called and told me that my wife and some guy have been to his gigs. He also wanted to know if he could borrow my guitar amp.

That’s when I got the idea to find out for myself what was really happening.

I said ‘Sure, you can use my amp but I want to hide behind it at the gig and see if she comes into the venue with this guy’. He agreed.

Saturday night came and I slipped behind my Marshall JCM800 half stack to get a good view. I could feel the heat coming off the back of the amp. It was at that moment, crouching down behind the amp, that I noticed that one of the tubes was not glowing as bright as the other three.

Is this something I can fix myself or do need to take it to a technician?
