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.

NO SOUND


Blown soeaker or amp. Only way to analyze is to open it aand do testing. First plug headphones into the 1/4 inch line output jack and see if anything comes through... it will only be in one ear as the ouptu is not a stereo output... If it comes to there, then the preamp and line driver is working, leaving the speaker and power amp suspect. If nothing ocmes out, I suspect the power SUPPLY might have failed.

What is the best way to run a Bass thrue the mixer , Mike the Amp or directley thrue the mixer, we had problems with a clear sound?


The easiest way is to take the line out from the bass amp and connect it to the line in socket of the mixer ( not the XLR Mic in ). This will give a clean and flat sound which you will have to customize using the Mixer tone control and not the bass amp controls.

When I recieved my BC Rich Virgo celtic bass there was no problem. I played with it for almost an hour. Later I wanted to play another time so plugged it in. No sound came from my bass. I tried to replace...


Intermittent problems can lead one on a merry chase. The first suspect would be the guitar cable.

Players learn to check the connection to the amp is good by touching the tip of the cable and observe you get hum.

It is UNLIKELY to get two bad guitars so we need to check everything else. Cable is next suspect.

Check the cable IS for intruments and NOT speakers. Check that the tips do not spin. Some cables become worn and the sleeves no longer actuate the switch that turns the battery in the guitar on or the tip fails to make contact. Do not use cables that are intended to connect stereo systems. Use ONLY instrument rated cables.

This sounds like either a bad guitar cable or a bad jack in the guitar. Possibly your friend is not as qualified to find these intermittent problems as needed? These jacks are really junky and often have riveting of the barrel come undone... especially if the retaining nut is overtightened. The LONG barrel like jacks are notorious for failing. You have all the information you need to solve this problem. First try a different guitar cable... (often they are broken or intermittent at the end where they flex). If that doesn't fix it, replace the jack in the guitar. Also verify that the conductive coating paint within the guitar is grounded. Sometimes the contact to it is destroyed when the volume control shafts or jacks become loose and they depend upon the shaft barrel to ground the paint.

My Fender 212R 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amplifier keeps on cutting out. The guy I took it to says there is something wrong with the cylinders? I also could have heard that wrong. I honestly don't know much...


You had best get a second opinion! When somebody says "there is something wrong" means they don't really know the details enough to give you an estimate even. If the amp cuts out sharply I would suspect that: 1. Bad volume control 2. Cracked circuit board 3. Bad solder joint on circuit board 4. Bad jack. These are in order from least to most likely.

I have Ibanez gsr200 bass guitar , yesterday and today I noticed that my bass's voice is irregular , please help me how to solve it , It's a new bass , Thanks


No question what to do... take it in under warranty since it is new !!!

You may find that there is a problem with your amp... the seller should be able to test the guitar and demonstrate normal sound for you.

Many users have TOO small of an amp and the distortions make it appear that the guitar is bad... I suspect you will want at least a 12 inch speaker and preferably a 15 inch for your bass.

When low frequency signals drive a speaker too hard it drives the voicecoil out of the linear range and the sound will be irregular..

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!

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!
