Re: My bass amp keeps cutting out!!!
Could be a broken or loose solder joint. I see it all the time. Something heats up and expands and contact is broken, cools down and reconnects, then heats up, cools down, etc. Could be a bad guitar cable or input or output jack. Does it happen when plugged into a different speaker?  
Also some solid state components have built in thermal protection circuits. Check current draw on these components.
