I want to build an amp that will deliver a bass drum sound for the stomp box I built.


As a 40 year guitarist and repair technician I had to laugh at this until I thought about my younger days of starting out. What I see here is that you made a momentary trigger out of a stomp box that apparently had problems, that you think you can build an electronic bass drum to play it with. Is this correct? See, the amp only gives a bass drum sound ONLY if a bass drum sound goes through it. Amps only provide audio power to the input signal. Where to get you bass drum sound is what you need to find. I believe you are thinking of a sample. A sample is an actual recorded sound of a bass drum that you could actually trigger by stepping on that button. You could find this on most cheaper casio, yamaha, emerson, radioshack, keyboards or drumpads or any of those amateur toys. Most of them allow a trigger pedal to be plugged into it and operational. Now, after you find something with a bass drum sample that you can trigger with your pedal, that device should allow you to plug it into an amp to amplify it. I hope I didn't confuse you much and had a close perspective of what you tried to describe. Please let me know if I can help further.

What is wrong? my active bass whether i put a new battery in or not sounds passive no change whatsoever. quite a bit of the low end is severely missing. Schecter STARGAZER 5 bass.


That bass combines passive EMG pickups with an active preamp (which provides the bass and treble controls). Sounds like you are never getting the preamp to work, and if that is the case there could be numerous reasons...a dead battery...jack wiring that is broken (meaning the battery ground wire is not attached or is grounding out)...likely should see a tech, but that is a good sounding bass when working correctly.

Every time i hit the bass drum i hear a click along with the bass drum sound...i cant figure out where it is coming from


Unplug all the other triggers and see if it is in the mechanics of the kick mechanism. If not, then one at a time plug in the other triggers till you find one that is causing it. Could even be the bass when amplified is triggerin lightly the rim of the snare for instance.

My bass drum stopped working. The module wont pick up any signal and ive tried everything short of replacing it. Not sure if its the wiring the module or the drum sensor itself.. Everything else works just...


Verify the module by connecting a different pad to the bass drum and see if you can trigger the bass drum sound. This would test the module. Now connect the bass to a different input and see if it will trigger that input. SOME of the triggers have a very small potentiometer in them. I have seen vibration break this pot loose rendering the unit inoperative. Also some people have pushed a screwdriver into the pot too hard and broken it off. Once you know it is the bass trigger, open the unit and look for damage. The sensor is usually a piezo disk. These can break away from their attachment. Reattach with contact cement after cleaning the residue.
