Hehe, I sorta copied the simpsons when Ralph ate those berries and said "The red ones taste like burning" :D

Anyway, when I play at even a moderate volume, 5 out of 10 on the gain and volume knobs, my Marshall AVT 50 combo amp starts smelling like it's about to catch on fire. It's not too bad... you wouldn't notice it in a club like if you were on a gig, etc. but I can smell it in my room a little bit the more I play. Any thoughts on why it smells like that? Thanks
