It's a bit worrying that there is a buzzing noise from the amp - you might want to get it checked out to make sure you're not in danger of electrocuting yourself.
If you're sure the amp is safe try turning the volume up half way and dabbing your finger on the end of the lead, you should hear a change in the hum or it'll disappear altogether. If it does change or go, your lead is OK and the fault must be with the guitar. I'd suspect the lead first though - apart from the humming that you mention.

You may have a switch with 2 settings somewhere on your amp - one for active and one for passive. try changing that.

If this doesn't work, make sure you got the guitar in the line input, change the lead for another incase it's faulty, turn the volume up on the guitar to activate the pickups, and rock-out when you find the problem and fix it.

Hey I recently purchased a Roland TD-4 and i have no idea how to hook up an amplifier to it. My friend gave me a little amp, and i've tried many ports and cannot get it to play outloud. I'd like it...


First plug a set of headphones into the Left audio out and see if you get any sound from there... NOTE: it will only be in the left headset and this is normal. Turn up volume control... note the level will be low as this is a line output, not headset. This is a test to see if there is audio.

Is there a fuse in this amp? is it replaceable without soldering?


Hi, blowing a fuse in an amplifier is a problem that most guitarists face at one time or another. If an amp won't turn on, or it turns on for a second, then makes a popping sound and turns off, the problem is usually a blown fuse. Though a blown fuse can be a hassle, especially during a performance, it does not have to put a stop to your musical enjoyment. With a spare fuse you can be back jamming to your favorite tunes in no time flat.

Things You'll Need

Fuse.

Instructions

Turn off the amplifier and unplug it from the wall.

Locate the fuse, which is usually found at the back of the amp. The fuse will look like a small black wheel sticking out of the amp with a number and the letter V next to it. For example, 9V.

Gently turn the fuse counter-clockwise to remove it from the amp.

Discard the old fuse.

Insert the new fuse into the empty fuse slot and turn it clockwise until it is firmly in place.

Plug in the amplifier; make sure the power switch is in the off position.

Turn the amplifier on to make sure the new fuse is working properly.



Hope it helped..

I've had my Clavinova for over 15 years now and the sound is becoming distorted. Is this an inevitable problem or is there some simple maintenance needed?


The Clavinovas are maintainable. Since you have not described the distortion we can't give much help. If there is difference between notes on the keyboard, the contacts may be getting dirty. If the audio is distorted for everything, the amplifier or speakers may need maintenance.

I have a YAMAHA GA 24/12 mixer and 10 aux (all) no


Check that you have the gains INTO the aux channel from each strip you want routed there turned up... AND... the gains OUT of the aux turned up. Two places to adjust the gains.

The AUX LIKELY use TRS balanced outputs... check that you are using those.

These are a starting point, I do not have a manual for this device.

How to change speaker yamaha keybord


Simply put, the speakers can't be changed on Yamaha keyboards. If you have blown the speakers then put the sound through an amplifier or HIFI speaker system - but you must be able to have an AUX cable and AUX on the HIFI for this to work. Sometimes it can also work by use of composite cabling too, depends really on what audio equipment you have.

Electric Guitar wont play through Amp


the buzzing is indicative of an open ground connection, check the cord by substitution or with an ohm meter, if the cord is good look at the connections to the jack inside the amp ( im guessing you built the amp from a kit). Is this a solid state amplifier? Tube amps have lethal votages and should not be experimented on without knowledge of electronic safety. Also if there is more than one input to the amp try plugging the guitar into another one and see if its still the same.
