Bass amp settings

I am interested in learning how tho set my bass amplifier to achieve different sounds. When I first bought a peavey amp (in 1986!) it came with a guide for settings that created appropriate sounds for rock, blues, slap, etc. I now play a 1978 Peavey Mark III, and would like some similar information

Re: bass amp settings

For rock and slapping you are going to want to set the Bass and Treble controls high and the Mids low. For music such as Jazz you are going to want more mids so that your sound will be fatter. If there is a button marked "Mid-Scoop" you'll want that on when slapping.

How to set up for bandit 75

What do you by setup for? Are you looking for certain settings to get a certain sound? I'd do a search for the player's name + amp settings. I would try the tone controls first if I was trying to tailor the sound. Try to adjust treble bass, midrange, and try with the volume down and the tone controls all the way up and reduce from there.

I just connected two sets of 901'a to Sansui G901 receiver. The sound is TINNY no bass at all. I've tried different connections and nothing seems to work. I've used two different EQ from bosse series

Either there is NO bass on the recordings (if you listen to it with headphones does it have bass?)'ve wired them out of phase. Connect only one(1) Bose 901's to just one side. Is there bass? Then connect the other side. IS there bass? If not reverse the phase (+ /- connections) and see if the bass comes back. Once that is done and there is BASS, then add the 3rd and then the 4th speaker. .Are you sure your Sansui can handle a lower than 4 ohm load???

Opening the speaker box, Peavey KB 60 Amp


A couple of top screws and some on the back lip of the chassis . The amp slides out but be careful not to pop the speaker leads I own a KB50 and have worked on other KB amps.

Sounds like you need a new reverb spring set.

Peavey is very good for parts

Peavey TNT115 AMP cuts out

The problem is in amplifier section caused by change value resistor or leak capacitor or cold ,loose or crack solder joint parts this the common problem of over heating and shuts out the amplifier caused by abnormal distribution of current,try to check all the capacitor and resistor and replaced the defected parts ,so your receivers works normal again.

Hope it may help you;
