Fender bassman 200 producing fuzzy tone

When i'm playing through the amp, there is a strong fuzzy tone. occasionally there the signal goes into a wave, quickly going from loud to soft. occasionally it does work properly, producing a clear sound, but the instances where that happens seem to be getting less frequent. any insights would be much appreciated. thanks.

I would check all the connections, try switching different connections making sure it's not the jacks, if that doesn't work, try sending to company if under warranty.

hope this helps

Play mac through Fender Frontman amp

Simple: connect the headphones out (3.5mm jack) to the input jack of your fender (6.3 jack). By doing this you will loose one channel so you better generate a mono signal inside your computer before. Electrically this is no problem, nothing will be damaged. Turn the gain and volume knobs down and apply a signal from your Mac. Gently increase gain and volume. Et voila wonderful mono sound through a guitar amp

My H/K 430 amp making a low frequency, very loud white noise that drowns everything out after it's been on for about 10 minutes

My strong, strong guess is that the large filter capacitors on the power supply have come to the end of their life. open chassis and remove (desolder) the power capacitors - large cans - and replace with new capacitors of similar ratings (voltage and uF). This "noise" will be more like a fuzzy tone of 100 (Europe) to 120 (USA) Hertz which are pretty low frequencies.

1965 fender bassman. The Bb, B, and C on the E string have a phasing sound.BTW...I'm playing a P-bass thru the amp...


Seems that there are some harmonic distortions.
You can try to swap some tubes (12AX7), there could be just one tube who's messes up your sound.
If there isn't any change off this distortion, you must visit a technician.

Good luck,

No clean tone

Look for bad electrolytic caps in the bypass caps for the power to the preamp stages.

My Fender Bassman 100 amp keeps buzzing.

Part of the power supply is a filtering stage that completes the conversion from AC current to DC. The "cap" is a capacitor that furnishes voltage to help smooth the alternating current that is left from the rectifier stage. These will start to fail over time. While it is a relatively simple repair for anyone that does this for a living, I would not suggest this as your first repair. Expect a parts cost inthe $20 range plus the local labor rate for the entire repair.
