Relay?? I've never seen a guitar or bass amp with "speaker protection relays"...usually they're either on or off. Check the simple stuff 1st...is speaker cable from head to cabinet and/or the input cable from bass to the amp good? Check the "Direct Out" for a line level signal (must be connected to a PA or other amplifier) as this is your preamp out signal. Also, plug a shielded cable from "Effects Send" to "Effects Return"...this will verify "effects" loop issues if any. Lastly, vibration test...use a clenched fist across the top, sides and bottom of wood cabinet to lightly "jar" the internal circuits. If it starts working even for an instant, I would suspect intermittent connection inside.

Home Studio Recording: Part 3


Once again, we dive into the subject of recording your band's (or your solo) album. So far, we've covered the basics, and how to record drums. Today, we talk about the all-important Bass Guitar.

There are a few different ways that you can do this, one being the industry studio standard of using a Direct In box, or DI. How this works is you run through this box, which then has two cables. One to the mixer, and one to your amp. You then mic the amp (see below for mic placement), and get both the clean and amped signals together on the track, giving you a fuller sound.

Method number 2 - Amp your bass, and add the effects there at the amp. Compression, chorus, and distortion are some popular ones with the bass guitar these days, even in country music. Light overdrive gives a bass more high end sparkle, making it easier to hear it at the lower volumes.

Method number 3, and suggested if you don't have a DI box as well as if you don't want to anger your neighbors, who bang on the ceiling with a broom (just joking on that. Still, don't tick them off!) - Plug your bass straight into the computer, and record two tracks simultaneously. On one of the tracks, apply an amp simulator with the desired effects. On the other, apply ONLY an equalizer and compressor, in that order. What this does is gives you the amp tone, as well as accentuates the lower frequencies of the bass guitar. It's the shortcut that actually produces great results.

For mic placement on your amp, you can use either a condenser mic (which requires a preamp, or a mixer with phantom power), or a dynamic mic. Both will give you a great sound, but it's up to you to find what fits your sound, and your budget.
Placing the mic. - Pick your best sounding speaker. To do this, turn your amp down, and play a note. Go to it, and listen to each speaker by placing your ear directly in front of it (this is why we said turn it down). If your best one is close to the floor, rotate the cab so that it's one of the top speakers. Using a standard mic stand, place the mic so that it's pointed directly at the speaker, but it's about 2 inches in front of the cone, and 2 inches to the side. You can experiment with different placements, such as directly in front, or to the side and pointed across the speaker, but this is usually the best sound you'll get.

That's all for this segment of Home Studio Recording. Join us later for part 4.

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.

Hi folks...I have a Behringer HA 400 Micro Amp. My question is: as I am a bass player/guitarist. Can I put my bass or guitar through this device. I understand that it will accommodate 1 instrument at a...


You can put just about any instrument through any amp. The difference in sound will be whether or not that amp was designed for the particular frequencies of that instrument. Also whether or not the speakers you are using are designed for those frequencies. When playing bass you need speakers designed to carry low frequencies (40 - 400 hz); mid-ranges and tweeters don't cut it. Set your instrument volume on the guitar at 70 - 90 % to get the most signal from the instrument. Set output volume on the amp at 50 - 70 %, then adjust gain on the amp to get required sound level. You're not likely to blow the amp, but you could blow the speakers if the amp delivers more power than the speakers can handle. With a micro amp check the output rating. It's possible you may not have enough power to get the sound you want and as you turn up the gain the sound will distort.

Hooking up two amps together


Yes. There could be big issues depending on how you want to "hook" them together. If you are wanting to simply run them at the same time (play through both at once) you can get a cheap signal splitter from GC or Radioshack and run your bass to the input, then output 1 and 2 to the respective amps. That is your best bet.
Setting up two amps parrallel does not nessesarily add power. That is to say that your 150 and your 350 "hooked" together does not give you 500 watts. In addition, there may be some issues with running a powered signal from the first amp into an input that is not designed for powered signals. Try the splitter or an old fashioned AB box. Safe and a cool trick. You can also use a stereo chorus pedal and let the signal chorus between amps. Makes the bass sound huge! Try it and good luck.

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.

I have my sound banks layered. My first bank is piano on top and acoustic bass on the bottom. Last night it started to detune. When I hit the C key, the piano would play a C, but the bass bottom layer...


Sound banks does not define what keyboard you might have... HOWEVER... THINGS TO CHECK: Check if the bass MIGHT have a transpose set by mistake. Also check if pitch bend might be active... some keyboards can use a pitchbend pedal... We can't guess what brand or model keyboard you have. Batteries are NOT anything that would cause this. Remember that on a keyboard there is a LIMIT to the number of sound generators that are available and you can run out of polyphony with mass layering. The last thing might be any "effects" you have activated. It sounds like you can split this keyboard so separate transpose MAY be possible that low end is transposed while upper is not...

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.

After about 30 minutes of playing i get a drop in bass power a drop in volume also a destorted sound occures during that period i tried changing the battery i still get the same problem i have a schecter...


Have you checked that it is not the amp that is the problem? This is a fairly common thing to have the amp heat up and the thermal protection shut it down partly. Since the bass drops, a loose connection or bad guitar cable can cause that. If the signal becomes capacitively coupled only the treble will come through and be very distorted. Try a new cable. For the guitar, open the electronics area and look for loose or broken wire.
