Recommend an Ashdown or Fender with a 15" speaker, they will give a good sound, are gig-worthy, and will last. I use a Behringher 120W for rehearsal work, it only has a 12" speaker and thus cannot give a good 'presence', also I have been reliably informed, a lot of custom chips are used in thier amps.
Don't forget, a bass 'E' goes down to something like 60Hz, and a good speaker and amp are a must for bass work

Not really good for Bass. They are a bit finicky too to get any decent sound out of them.

The manual is not online yet, but email Peavy and see what they have, they have many other amps online and downloadable for free, so it is likely they have not scanned it yet. http://www.peavey.com/

About the cable,

This is from peavey.com:

. Plus, the Generation guitars that feature ACM come with a dual-ended cable that sends the two tones to two different amplifiers, opening up even more tone possibilities.

SOURCE: 9v battery wires came loose. peavey 5 string bass

The negative battery terminal will go to a black wire and that will be soldered to one of the volume control cases. That makes the remaining wire easy. The negative terminal pole on the battery is the larger round one.

SOURCE: Peavey 115 Low hum Low volume from input

The preamp section has a problem. It could be anything in the preamp but is OFTEN the input jack itself. They take a lot of abuse.

Also the insert jack contacts that forward the preamp to the power amp if no external FX are used can go bad.

Additional things are circuit board cracks caused by rough handling and also controls that have had the knobs mashed in which can destroy the potentiometers they are connected to.

SOURCE: My bass guitar wont connect to my amp.

Assuming that the amplifier is functioning properly, I suspect that the problem is either in the cord, the plug socket on the bass, or the volume control potentiometer. First, I would try another cord that is known to be in good condition (ALWAYS plug the cord into the instrument FIRST). Second, carefully remove the cord receptacle plug from the bass and examine the solder joints (check for loose wires). Third, carefully remove the plate that holds the volume and tone pots. Examine these controls for loose wires or faulty solder joints. CAUTION: If solder joints are found to be the culprit, care must be taken to correct this problem. If too much heat enters the pot, it can be ruined!

    Rms b80 bass guitar amp has little volume in the low side jack , hi side jack is fine just not as much bass


    The low in side jack has a lower vol. but should only be1/4 less than the high in jack on most amps, --try this,-- plug guitar in high in then take all the treble off and 1/2 mid. range bring up bass range and if you have equauzation bring down 26k 5k 10k about 2 notches or points. See if that give you better bass tone.

    Wiring output from the bass to the amp is not getting a signal or is not making any sound..how would i repair this?


    you'll need to determine if its the amp or guitar. SO! plug a different guitar into the amp ( to make sure it does in fact work ). if it does you have a guitar problem. if it doesnt then an amp. Also be sure to check things like the cable as well. if it's the guitar then more than likely you can take the back plate off and find a broken wire. depending on location of broke wire determines where it connects back to. try these actions and post back on here for any further help. Please Rate! THanks!

    This bass squels if you have a bass head and cabinet. i had a 100W amp and it played fine then upgraded to a head/cab. tryed playing it with loud volume, squels. anyway to fix this?


    Turn down the treble gain and mid gain... you don't need it for a bass. Prevent the guitar from "hearing" the output of the amp directly. The guitar strings make a good microphone.

    Bass strings are too loud in comparison to treble strings whe played through the amp


    Adjust this using the EQ on the amp and to a lesser extent the tone controls on the guitar.

    Often people boost the bass way up causing this problem.

    I have Ibanez gsr200 bass guitar , yesterday and today I noticed that my bass's voice is irregular , please help me how to solve it , It's a new bass , Thanks


    No question what to do... take it in under warranty since it is new !!!

    You may find that there is a problem with your amp... the seller should be able to test the guitar and demonstrate normal sound for you.

    Many users have TOO small of an amp and the distortions make it appear that the guitar is bad... I suspect you will want at least a 12 inch speaker and preferably a 15 inch for your bass.

    When low frequency signals drive a speaker too hard it drives the voicecoil out of the linear range and the sound will be irregular..

    Bass Guitar Keeps sound keeps cutting in and out.


    There is an inconsistency in your text. You indicate that cables were swapped and problem still existed...
    You said:... "i have tried using it on a different amp and still fine".

    If you tried it on a different amp and it was still fine then the guitar is probably OK.

    THEN your amplifier is in question as the root of your problem.

    What is the amp you have? The guitar is the CB-42, but what amp do you have?

    MANY intermittent problems with amplifiers are often with the input jack itself. These jacks are easily broken by tripping over a cable plugged into them.
