Zener diode and hum in guitar amp

It could be the diodes, but whatever is the cause it's before the pre-amp section. Generally a loud hum such as that with no effect by volume control, is mostly caused by the filter capacitor in the power supply. And that hum is the 50HZ mains hum getting into your system!

I have a technics SU-V98-KM8 Amplifier that turns on and lights up but does not have any soundd coming out of it. I have checked alll the cables and cords and everything is hooked up the way its supposed...

Your amplifier is turned on and all the indicator lights work and you made it sure that all the cables, and cords are attached to where they are supposed to be connected and yet you don't get any sound coming out when you play a music. Amplifiers have selector knobs for you to set where your source is coming from. Selector knobs can be set to TUNER, DVD, CD, and AUX. The scenario might be like this: your source is coming from a movie being played on your DVD player connected to your amplifier but your knob selector is set to AUX. Try playing a music selection from your CD player attached to your amplifier and set the selector knob to CD. If still there is no sound coming out you need to have it checked by a qualified technician.

Why does my yamaha 7000 amp sound low and bassy with no punch to it?

There are two possibilities.
Either your instruments's settings are all turned down with the exception of "bass" and this would affect the sound that way.

That or you turned down your mid and treble on the amp itself. Turn all the knobs to middle and turn them one at a time till you get the sound your looking for.
The knobs on your instrument and amp control the settings.

I bought a mixer with this model "Behringer XENYX 1204USB 12 Ch USB Mixer". And i'm planning to have a set-up of 2 electric-acoustic guitars and 3 microphone vocals. What would be the best wattage of...

Hello Sir, Hi, the amplifier best suited for it would be a Behringer also, the EP2500 would be a match, and the eurolive B815neo speakers, but this cost a lot, any amplifier and a corresponding speaker will do. for your electric guitars or acoustics the GTX30. If you will use your 15" speakers, match it with a right amplifier, you did not mention its watts rating, If your speakers are 250 watts, then buy an amplifier slightly higher that 250 watt,

Line six guitar amplifire...controls

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!

Hi lumberman597

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.:)
