Looks to me like u are having a power problem. Check if power is going to your amp, if yes, check the fuse on the amp. If ok, check the powersupply section for any damage components and replace.

You can not only play it on electric guitar setting, you can play it LOUD. Its all about what YOU do and what YOU like. Dont accept it when somebody tells you that the music you're playing doesnt sound good to them. ITS YOUR MUSIC !
Do whatever you want. And NO it wont hurt guitar or amp. Rock on or whatever it is you do.

Volume on the piano is less than half the volume it should be. Demo and play along songs play at full volume but keyboard wont no matter how hard the key is pressed, Is there a fix for this...

Pianos do NOT respond to keys pressed hard... they respond to FAST presses. If you have an issue with the piano, first go on record to activate your warranty. Most of these electronics DO have a setting that adjusts the "feel" which affects the loudness versus key velocity... Now here is a secret??? Shh... The manufacturers turn up the demos just like the advertisers turn up the commercials on the TV... I would suggest looking for the adjustment of feel, and if that doesn't get satisfactory results, find another and compare yours to another... if yours is still underperforming, exercise your warranty for repair or replacement.

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.

My Dual Terror amp stops working just a few songs into my practice session. The best way I can describe it is that it's like a battery going dead in a guitar with active electronics. The volume...

Instead of waiting a day, cool the thing down as quickly as you can and try it to see if it is a therma; problem.

You MAY be driving it too hard and the amp chip is going into thermal shutdown... This is a small amp and not intended for major loud use.

TRY playing softer and see if it lasts longer before failing. If you are overheating the internal chip because you want it loud, best to get a bigger amp...

Next test is to turn it on but DON'T play for a time period of more than the usual few songs and then see if it is already dead or you have to play awhile before it fails.

Pioneer SA-9500 Extremely Loud Crackling

The volume control and tone controls are dirty as well as the selection switch. This is common for older units. These controls and switches need to be cleaned with an electronic switch cleaner which should be available from an electronics store. Spray each control/switch and work them (turn repeatedly). Repeat this procedure a number of times and the accumulated dust/dirt will be cleaned and the unit should no longer have the problem.

Please note that it is possible that there is a transistor or 2 that are breaking down that can cause this as well. If the cleaning does not resolve the problem, let us know.

Most audio software these days offer either built-in or plugin functionality that will attempt to level the volume of your MP3 files so that you aren't turning the volume up to hear soft songs, then getting blasted by louder ones. So why is it that even after turning that option on, you sometimes notice a significant volume difference between some songs? What's worse is when you're listening to songs from the same album, and the volumes jump around abnormally after applying volume normalization.

The problem is that the vast majority of audio player programs use peak amplitude analysis to determine how "loud" a song is and normalize based on that, rather than doing a more comprehensive analysis of the frequencies that impact how loud the music actually sounds. But even those that do a more comprehensive analysis fail to consider songs within the context of the album they belong to.

Luckily, there's a great little utility called MP3 Gain that does lossless volume analysis and adjustment based on David Robinson's Replay Gain algorithm, as well as allowing for the volume of entire albums to be processed. MP3 Gain has been around for a number of years, and it doesn't appear that it is being actively developed anymore, but since MP3 technology hasn't changed much either that doesn't matter for our purposes.

So, how do you fix an entire library of music? Pretty easy, actually. MP3 Gain offers batch processing options that allow you to process an entire folder at once. But if you collect music albums, you'll want to do those separately. The reason is that MP3Gain offers two modes: Radio and Album. Radio analysis and gain adjustment will adjust all songs to the same maximum decibel level. Album mode analyzes all of the songs in an album, essentially considering them to be one entire song, then adjusts them all to a maximum decibel level, but maintains their relative volume.
