Re: fender performer 1000
how is does the amp channel switch. Solid state switching and relays, mechanical switching...?. If the unit uses solid state and/or relay switching I would check the low voltage power supplys to see if they drop out with vibations. Often in many amps popping weird switching etc. is caused by bad solder at voltage dropping power resistor leads causing low voltage(s) that are used control the switching logic to drop out and then come back. I have fixed problems caused by losing one of the low voltages on a marshall solid state (channel dropping out), fender blues deluxe tube (change channels when playing), Crate solid state (loud popping that ripped the speaker cone)
