Re: Crate Vintage Club 30 VC3112 troubleshooting
Mark, I've serviced many of these Crate vintage amps over the the past few years and from experience, many of the problems they have are caused by poor solder joints around the tube socket pins; resolder them to eliminate loud popping sounds. Another trouble area ,which causes fading or intermitant sound is the effects loop jack, which may be loose on the board or have worn or diry contacts.  
Hope this helps.
