It sounds to me that you need to fix the input on the bass (where you plug in), sometimes just tightening the nut will do it, or buying a new one and replacing.

Inspect the wires leading to the 1/4" jack on the bass. Try moving them to see if you can figure out which wire is the culprit. Check for any bad solder joints on the pots inside the guitar.

Chances are the jack has been twisted and damaged a wire and/or a solder joint.

It plays for about 30 minutes and then just stops, as if overheating. After a cooldown period, it starts up again for another short period. Suggestions? Any recommended vents I could cut in...


The small Fender products often have a TDA2050 power chip in them. The chip is on a thin aluminum heatsink and is intended for light use. If you try to sound like a bass guitar amp with this, the chip will go into thermal protection mode. Cutting vents will not help very much, and pushing it to these levels will destroy the speaker eventually. If you need more power, buy a bigger amp. This one would be suitable for a 10 foot by 10 foot room.

1 Answer

My Fender Rumble 25 makes a terrible crackling sound when the volume is turned up over the 4 or 5 mark. I don't think the speaker is blown as the same sound comes via the headphone socket.


Here is the schematic:http://www.fender.com/support/amp_schematics/pdfs/Rumble_Bass_Schematic_-B21.pdf Check the tubes to see if one is loose in its socket. Do not attempt to repair this yourself unless you have amplifier repair experience as it is easy to get a bad or life threatening shock without the correct test gear and troubleshooting procedures.I hope this helps.
