The "handle type thing" is a Tremolo or, more often referred to as a "whammy" bar. The thing at the base of the strings is called a bridge. Looking at the strings, there should be a hole to the right of the smallest string. If your "handle" is threaded, stick the threaded end into the hole and rotate in a clockwise motion. Once is hits the bottom of the threads, back it off one turn and gravity will let it hang out of the way while you play. If there are no threads, it will slip in and you will feel a "click" when it's in the proper position.

On the back of the guitar, there is a cover plate that covers the cavity where the springs are located that make the "whammy bar" work. The springs hold tension on the bridge so you can tune it and play normally, but let the "whammy bar" stretch or release tension on the strings when you push or pull it. If you already have springs inside the cavity, the extra spring you have will let you add more tension to the bridge, but you probably won't need it. If there are no springs already installed, you can install your "extra" spring in there to give you the flex and spring for the "bar-handle" to work properly.

To install a spring, loosen or remove your guitar strings, open the cover on the back, and install the spring over the hooks on the bridge and the hook on a metal bar on the other end of the cavity. Replace the cover, insert your "handle", and wiggle-away.

The allen wrenches are most likely for adjustment of the moveable pieces that support the strings on the bridge. The bridge has adjustments for up and down, and forward and back to adjust the height and distance where the string is supported. Don't adjust the bridge supports unless you loosen the strings. It is highly recommended that you don't make any adjustments yourself unless you are familiar with the mechanism. You can adjust your guitar where it's impossible to keep in tune if the adjustments are not perfect. There are usually guitar repair shops close by and offer "set-up" services to get your instrument adjusted properly. It's well worth the money to have it done right, and the service people with often teach you many things that will help keep your instrument playing well.

Hope this helps.

How do i connect eurolive vs1220f?


Hi
I'm sorry if this isn't going to be as helpful as we would both prefer but it will explain your problem if nothing else. I have managed to find a manual for this kit here:-
http://www.behringer.com/assets/VS1520_VS1220F_VS1220_M_EN.pdf
and unfortunately it says:
"Using 1/4" TS speaker cables, lug the power amp output into the 1/4" input on the back of the speaker. DO NOT use the instrument cables(i.e., guitar cords) for this connection!"
This has made things clear to me anyway. This is just a speaker and has no other circuitry, because of this you must have an amplifier of some sort between your guitar and this speaker in order to hear anything. As long as the speaker is plugged into the mains supply, and a suitable amplifier there is no need for an on/off switch, everything is controlled from the amplifier.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

I have an EDB 600 here and some of the wiring is detached; I would love to find some sort of diagram of the wiring so I know how to put it back together!


Try here for a 2004 EDB600. Newer years don't show up but they are probably pretty similar.

When I turn on the amp, I get a loud hum. plugging into the jack doesn't change anything. turning the dials doesn't change anything. when I turn off the amp it makes a loud crack.


i) Disconnect one lead of loudspeaker & insert an open-ended guitar cable into headphone socket.

ii) Put a dc voltmeter across open end jack then turn Frontman ON for a few seconds.

iii) The reading should be about 0volts - if the voltage is high (27v), then it is likely that the PA chip TDA1514A has blown.

iv) If,however, the voltage is correct in iii) , then reconnect speaker & put guitar cable into the POWER AMP IN socket & connect other end to guitar...Turn on briefly, if there is still hum then fault is in the output stages & will require chassis removal to solve.

I am trying to record in multi track mode-want to know how to record for example vocals on track one then without erasing the vocals add for example harmony or guitar so i get two things on one track. At...


How multitrack recording works is assigning each recording to a different track. A way around this is to record the vocals to track one, then your harmony to track two. Save that as a single recording, or mixdown, then open that saved mixdown to track one. You may need to be connected to a computer to do this.

I use the same technique when using Cool Edit Pro (outdated, yes, but I've been using it for 4 years, and I know most of the ins and outs), especially on the guitar tracks, where for studio sound, you've gotta use 4 total tracks. Putting two tracks together frees up your processor, and uses less in the way of effects, as well.


Hope that helps!

Line 6 Spider IV 30 I have the above amp and there seems to be a short when the guitar input jack makes contact with the chassis. There's a copper contact pad on the sub board that the jack is mounted...


Typical guitar input on a schematic for line 6 shows an inductor between the input jack sleeve connection and the "earth" or safety ground.
I do NOT understand how you could fry one of the voltage regulators via the guitar cable unless you have more than a guitar (other devices) connected to the jack.
ALWAYS power any interconnected audio equipment from the same receptacle or power source to avoid ground bounce/fault damage to equipment.

Typically these input jacks have 3 or 4 "tails" that solder to the circuit board. The best thing is to get an exact matching jack. You can search for 1/4 inch jacks with matching profile at Digikey.com, Mouser.com, and try www.tubesandmore.com/

In the future ALWAYS loop the guitar cord through the handle so plug is not yanked sideways when people trip over the cord.

While it could be true that you're having a problem with the guitar or cable as the previouse expert suggested, to say that it can't be anything else is false. It could be a jack problem...it would only be apparant when the jack is making contact with a cable. I do think you should test it with another guitar and another cable but if that is not solving the problem then I bet it's a problem with the input jack of the amo itself or even one of the ionternal components (this is a digital amp and there are MANY components and settings that can trigger a problem like this) If the problem is not solved with a new cable/guitar configuration then it's time to take it to the shop.

You need a directional microphone, and then it needs to be pointed away from the guitar. Another technique would be to provide some acoustic insulation between the mic and the guitar, like a wall or a partition like what is used to set up office cubicles.
