Question about Peavey Music

1 Answer

When playing low notes on my guitar, I'm getting sub harmonics while playing clean on my Delta Blues 210. (sounds like a detuned bass playing along with me.)

This problem occurs at all volumes, hi and low. Has nothing to do with the reverb. Reverb level is at 0.

That unit has a digital reverb and tremolo that can not be turned OFF with your foot control, meaning this small sound card is always on. Even though that level is on "0", it is still always on. If it has a problem within it, it will put noises into your sound. I would recommend opening the amp, look for the power to the effects card and unplug it to see if it goes away. It should be a small card resembling a sound card from a computer mounted off to the side. It should have a red and a black wire plugged into it. Wiggle it and listen for a change, dirty connections on that plug could do that. Unplug it completely and listen. This would only remove the possible interference of the card, you would still have sound without effects. Regardless of the brand, those cheap effects cards are usually more trouble than they are worth. They only have a few samples of effects, not the actual effect. I hope this helps, I know it is a great sounding amp but, those effects cards are the weakness of amps today.

SOURCE: Crate 100 head. Reverb doesn't work.

Check the input RCA plug going into the reverb tank (silver box with two wires connected to it). Make sure the amp is off when you do this. Sounds like the output is working fine if hitting the amp does it.

SOURCE: The BOSS FDR-1 produces a popping sound when played

This is a common problem with this pedal experienced by allot of people. My best advice would be to sell it and put the money toward a real Fender tube amp and some good pickups. If you're trying to go cheap check out some Line 6 modeling stuff.

SOURCE: hi, i have a problem with

It sounds like the sustain is stuck on as if a sustain pedal is active. You don't mention if you have one, however if you MIGHT have one and you have used a Roland pedal, that brand is reverse sensed and would cause note to remain on.

SOURCE: I've told my Frontman 65r has a real reverb tank

The reverb should be quite strong. I would first look at the reverb volume pot R42 which is a 50K pot. I would also check the voltages on the test points near U4 (TLO-72 op amp tp13 and tp14) which amplifies the signal coming out of the box. It is possible the box has low power levels as well.
The problem is going to be around that section of the board if it isn't a dirty or dead(ish) pot.


The reverb should be noticeable enough to be annoying ;-]

How do i adjust intonation on a peavey predator plus exp?


To adjust the intonation on a guitar you need the following. ..
a electronic tuner
and a small philip screwdriver

when you tune a string say low E you play the note open and adjust tell it's in tune
then to intonate play the low E at the 12th fret
producing a Harmonic, view the tuner it will be sharp or flat,
turn the small philip screw on the bridge adjustment
it only takes a small turn one way or the other so go slow
once the string is tuned at the harmonic note check to see if it's in tune played open, keep tuning and adjusting tell the strings are in tune open and at the 12th fret on all six strings
once intonation is set properly the guitar will sound better
really hope that helps?

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...

Hello! I've bought a Fender Rumble 75 about 3 months ago and it sounded great really but after some loud playing (About 75% of max volume) it started to buzz at midrange notes, and its gets worse as time...


Try plugging another sound source into the unit. The buzz MAY be pickup of magnetic fields in your guitar pickup that clobber your notes from the strings. Bad guitar cables are another possibility. By putting clean music from say a CD player into the unit you can find where the source is. If the CD player generates the same noises, then likely you have a failure of filter caps in the amp or other component failures. Also make sure your guitar can't "hear" the amp as feedback can do strange things.

The problem I have with my music man bongo bass 4 strings,,, is that the string 4 at fret 5 sounds very strange as making waves, but it sounds good with the other tones, on the other strings when I play...


Check first it is not hitting or touching the next few frets, in case they are high. Or maybe the 5th fret is low. You could raise the action and/or adjust the neck relief to test this.

If it is not a fret problem, it may be a real dead spot on your bass. If so, it would be regardless of the pickup used and could be heard acoustically if you could hear notes that low easily. Most guitars have notes on the fretboard somwhere that are a little dead. It is due to destructive interference and there is not much that can be done. To happen at the 5th fret is unusual though. Make sure the string is wound properly around the head, and that nothing is loose and actually moving/buzzing when you play the note.
Other causes can be a loose fret, loose bridge parts or a loose neck joint.

Hi, i have a acoustic guitar and i am trying to tune it but i do not know how to use the Matrix Chromatic Tuner SR-1050


Hi
Simply turn the tuner on using the power button. Play an open string note close to the tuner (no more than about 1/2 metre away) - for instance the low E on string 6.
The built in microphone will pick up the sound and, if your guitar is reasonably close to being in tune the led light labelled 'E' will illuminate on the lower scale on the tuner along with one of the three other leds to indicate whether the note is flat (b), in tune (green) or sharp (#).
Due to harmonics any or all of these three leds may flash but it is the one that is on the most that matters.
Adjust the tuning peg until the green is on constantly when you play the string.
Move on to the next string
Note - if the string is more than a semitone sharp or flat a different light may flash (e.g if the low E string is 3/4 of a tone flat the D light will come on).
If you wish to tune your guitar to another instrument that is not at perfect pitch (and perhaps cannot be easily adjusted - like a pipe organ) you can use the calibrate button to adjust the setting of the tuner. This temporary recalibration will be lost when the tuner is turned off.

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!
