the switch, has three positions. Typically forward or up will be your neck (or rythm) pick ups, only and will work with one volume knob(usually top right as your looking at guitar), and one tone knob ( top left as your looking at the guitar). when the switch is in the far right or all the way down position, that will be the saddle (or lead) pick-ups. And that works with only one volume knob(bottom right as your looking at the guitar) and the corresponding tone knob. when the switch is in the middle position, botjh volume knobs work and both tone knobs work. You've gotta kinda play around with them to find whatever sound yopur looking for. and tone knobs are very subtle in their changes. good luck
Your amp has two channels - "normal" and "drive." When you are on the normal channel, the "volume" knob controls your gain. In the "drive" channel, the drive knob controls your gain. In both channels, the "master" knob limits how loud the amp will get.
Most likely, you are on the drive channel, so the volume knob will have no effect. Try pushing the "channel select" switch. You should notice the channel indicator lamp (next to the drive knob) turn off. When it is off, you are in the normal mode. Yellow = drive, and red = "more drive."
Experiment with different settings to get a variety of tones.
To get the most out of this amp, try reading the manual, available online here: http://www.fender.com/support/manuals/pdfs/manuals_elec/guitarpdf/Hot_Rod_Deluxe.pdf
Hi! I have a Spider III 15 watter, but I think the functions are similar. If the "Tap Tempo" light is flashing, you are not in Reverb mode. The light must be lit steady if you are in "Reverb" mode. I notice that you have to rotate the knob that you're working with all the way counterclockwise, and then clockwise to the setting you're trying to get. If you just turn it clockwise from where it is when you power on, it doesn't seem to do much to change the settings. Also, very little movement of the knobs makes a big change. They seem to be very sensitive.
You may want to reset your amp to the factory default settings. This will clear ALL presets that you have saved! To do this, hold down the CLEAN channel button when you power it on. Again, ALL SAVED PRESETS WILL BE CLEARED! Hope this helps.
The Line 6 forums are a great place for info. They will even tell you about "Secret Settings" that are not in the manual. Good luck and rock on!
Guitar manufacturers use generally one of two different knob types: (1) knob has a small set screw of some type holding it on or (2) press fit onto the shaft of the tuneing pot (volume knob in your case).
Now, the problem is if it is NOT a set screw type, it is press fit. You see press fit used most of the time on lower-end instruments (and a few high end). The BEST way to get a stuck volume know off is to get a shoe string, loop part of it under the knob, brace the guitar firmly and PULL SLOWLY WITH FORCE. Realize that it is possible to damage the guitar if you **** on the string too hard.
I have never seen where a stuck know did not come off (or hear of someone breaking their guitar doing it).
I have also resorted to using a small screwdriver: work it way under the know and gently twist it to loosen it so it can be pulled off with a string or your hands.
Be carefull not to scratch your guitar!
turn that ****** on and get a can of freeze spray. coming and going type issues is usually related to a failing electrolytic capacitor. there may also be a bad mosfet, rectifier, diode, etc. i would be suspect to caps. schematics probably only available thru crate and you have to pay a couple bucks, but trust me its worth the couple bucks spent and having it on its way than wasting hours online not getting anywhere. by the way i checked my sources and came up with nada. yostamplifier.com
The cool thing about guitar amps is that you can mess with the knobs until you find the sound that you like. There is no particular way to use it, just try to find a tone that suits you. Start with gain controls down and tone knobs at 12o'clock. Turn up the gain(one at a time) to get distortion and more sustain to your sound. Turn the distortion up midrange down and treble up for metal sounds, more bass and midrange for bluesy sounds. just play around with it and you will see what I mean. Here is a guide from Fender on how to setup your guitar. If you are not sure, a good guitar tech can make any old axe feel and sound great with a good setup unfortunately, Fender do not have an electronic copy of your owners manual to download, but you can buy one for $5 direct from them here It is only a 1 page manual.... so you will get more from just messing with it.
Musicians spend there whole lives tuning and tweaking knobs to get the sound they are looking for. It wont take you long to start doing the same.:)
