Peavey Bass Amp TKO115s

I am playing with a six string Artisan Cort bass guitar, connected to the Peavey Bass Amp TKO115s. Set to smiley face EQ settings and played around with the Low and High gains
Near the amp the clarity is fine
When listening to the notes about 30 meters away the notes are distorted
How can I overcome the problem?

Start with a clean setting - zero cut and zero gain on the Eq. Play a song close to the amp, and then move away, playing the same notes. Do you still get the distortion? Change lower the input gain and repeat the test. Lower the output gain and repeat. Are any outboard distortion pedals in the mix, such as overdrive? Eliminate them. Run straight through from your axe to the amp. Check for any distortion settings. Set everything including reverb to zero. When the distortion disappears, this is your base setting.
Change only ONE parameter at a time. When the distortion comes back, you have found your problem.+

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.

Takamine eg523sc... the bass string (6th) is about 30% less in volume as the other strings what could i do to correct this problem?


You should take this to a guitar shop for setup. If you have correct strings on there the other thing is to check any EQ of whatever you run this into... If the amp can't handle the real low bass, it MAY appear to be a guitar problem but in fact is an inadequate frequency response at the low end in the amp and speaker.

ALSO some people believe it or not get deaf in the low range if they have damaged their ears when young. Procure a sound meter to VERIFY the sound intensity level... You may find the level is the same for the different strings.

The weak spot for bass is the SPEAKER in the amp.

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.

Bass amp settings


For rock and slapping you are going to want to set the Bass and Treble controls high and the Mids low. For music such as Jazz you are going to want more mids so that your sound will be fatter. If there is a button marked "Mid-Scoop" you'll want that on when slapping.
