    My Atomic Amp has been acting up in the last day or so. The amp volume is suddenly extremely low, though if I give the top of the amp a light slap, the volume increases for a second or so before going back down. Any ideas as to what is wrong?

    Sounds like a bad tube given your description.

    That's what I was hoping for. I'll pick some up in the next day or so and see what happens.

    Sounds like a cold solder joint to me.

    Ah, that comment prompted me to check some of the connections, and I found that one of the wire plugs for POD connections wasn't in all the way. Everything seems to be fine now. Thanks!
