Hi there, I'm trying to fix the volume knob connections for a yamaha CE bass that has only two knobs. I can't seem to find a wiring diagram for it anywhere and all I need to know is what wire to connect where. Can you help?

To remove the knob, there should be a small hex key or allen screw on the side of the knob. Just loosen the screw. You don't have to remove it.

To tighten the nut properly, you may have to remove the back panel of the bass and hold the potentiometer from the other side. If allowed to turn too much, it could mess up the wiring.

What are the control knobs on a fender usa telecaster for. explain each knob please


The one furthest from the switch is volume. The next one is a tone knob. Volume rasises or lowers the resistance and makes the guitar louder. You can also "clean up" a distorted tone by rolling off volume. Tone makes the sound more bassy or more treble.

Whenever I slightly adjust the "Channel Volume"


You've got a loose wire! What's happening is that there's a bad potentiometer (the electrical component behind the knob) that's out of place and is only connecting fully at one point in the knobs circuit (the part where you get full volume) take it in to an amp tech at your local music store and they'll fix it up easily.

Does anyone know how to make a bass knob remote out of phone line? What the color code? I have 4 different color wire here but i don't know what to do to make a bass knob remote.


It is NOT clear what you are trying to do... HOWEVER if you are attempting to extend a bass potentiometer remotely, you CANNOT use the four wire flat telephone line as it is unshielded and you will pick up hum.

Line 6 Spider III 15W- My Bass and Drive knobs arnt working... my mid and treble seems to be fine plus all my channels and effects but just those two knobs...and its buggin the **** out of me.... any...


resolder the three legs of the pots back down to the pcb. usually the treble feeds the bass, then from bass to mid then to ground. so if treble and mid are working its hard to imagine why the bass wouldnt be working. i would try to resolder, as you might have cold solder joints. keep it unplugged, pull off the knobs, open it up, remove the pcb screws and pull/flip out the pcb and resolder all of the pots.

Fender Rumble 100 210 pop noise then hum after strong low e note


I just fixed my bass amp with a similar problem last week: the problem is related to a loose connection on the PCB board (likely).
A bass amp is a rough place for circuitry: the low rumble and power shake a bass amp more than a guitar amp.
In my case, the power transistors needed to be re-soldered and then the grounding bolts and screws needed to be removed and cleaned because the connection was bad. Remember that when two different metals needed for an electric connection are toughing, there is the likelyhood that corrosion WILL happen.
My bass amp did basically the same thing yours did: sounded good at low volumes, but at higher volumes it would act up.
In short, there is nothing you can do (unless you are a repair person): you need to take it to a local music shop and have a tech fix the intermittant contact problem: someone who knows what they are doing should only take an hour at most.

Hope that helps!
