Perfect ten bass amp, guitar

Bought this amp second hand last week,(thanks to the nice guy) when i play my bass through it, it sound very slightly blown, as if ive got somekind of fx pedal on.The notes arent clear or crisp.
It does this wether its played loud or quiet,which makes me think its not blown and its something in the amp which is easily fixed. thanks for any help.

Can you use headphones? if so do they sound normal. probably have bad filter caps. 2200uf caps big ones, go bad and lose their capacitance and cant process the low end notes, sounds like a motorboat or ******* out. speaker may have issues as well. get the caps from mouser.com and careful of stored voltage on the capacitors it is deadly....... those caps are less than 2 bucks each.

I turn my fx off but can still here it and the od sound is lower than the fdx button when i push it in to turn it on


2 things 1: there is no off button for the built in digital effects, you just turn the level down to minimum, the fdx button you speak of is actually fdd (frequency dependant damping) this is supposed to mimic how a tube amp sounds

2: when you press the od switch the amp goes into hi gain mode and will hiss with no input, the point is if you plug a guitar in and play it the volume of the guitar is way above the hiss and you don't hear it

so in conclusion having bought and sold many mg series amplifiers the on you have is perfectly ok

When i play a bit loud (not too much though just when the light blinks red on the hard play) the sirquit closes the amp for two seconds.can you healp me on this ?thank you very much


does your bass have active pick ups?
do the ratings on your amp match the ratings on your speaker?
are you using a pedal?
does your pedal have an output adjustment?
have the ground on your bass checked.
make sure you're using the right kind of cable.
and be sure that the outlet you're using is grounded.

Bass Guitar Keeps sound keeps cutting in and out.


There is an inconsistency in your text. You indicate that cables were swapped and problem still existed...
You said:... "i have tried using it on a different amp and still fine".

If you tried it on a different amp and it was still fine then the guitar is probably OK.

THEN your amplifier is in question as the root of your problem.

What is the amp you have? The guitar is the CB-42, but what amp do you have?

MANY intermittent problems with amplifiers are often with the input jack itself. These jacks are easily broken by tripping over a cable plugged into them.

My bass guitar wont connect to my amp.


Assuming that the amplifier is functioning properly, I suspect that the problem is either in the cord, the plug socket on the bass, or the volume control potentiometer. First, I would try another cord that is known to be in good condition (ALWAYS plug the cord into the instrument FIRST). Second, carefully remove the cord receptacle plug from the bass and examine the solder joints (check for loose wires). Third, carefully remove the plate that holds the volume and tone pots. Examine these controls for loose wires or faulty solder joints. CAUTION: If solder joints are found to be the culprit, care must be taken to correct this problem. If too much heat enters the pot, it can be ruined!

Fuzzy sound when instrument being played


The 1/4" output on your bass needs to be resoldered in 1 or more places. It's very common.

i'm having the same problem. theyre not playing bass because it's on face off and pro face off too. it's also not the gh 3 disc because it does the same thing to me on gh 2 and rocks the 80s. it has something to do with the ps2.
