Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a Hartke HA3500 350w bass amp. When I play my bass guitars I get a slight fuzzy distorted sound from all four speakers. So I'm guessing it's not a problem with the speakers. Can you help?

SOURCE: Amp went into protect, but front speakers sound distorted too

If the amp still goes into protect mode, the easiest thing to do is disconnect the RCA cables from the amp and see if still goes into protect mode (after turning off/on). If it does, the issue lies in the amp or the wiring to/from the amp (most likely case). Check to make sure no speaker wires came loose and touched +12V or ground (car body). From the sound of it, my guess is something internal to the amp died and will need repair.

Hartke vx115 lost significant volume


If you've tried different heads with the same result, the most likely problem is a blown speaker. Check it with an ohm meter, and if it's blown, you can either replace it or get it re-coned.

No sound coming out for my hartke amps?


Are the internal speakers properly connected via the rear-mounted 1/4 inch "Speaker Output" jack? If so and still no sound, try connecting a separate external speaker (floor monitor, pa cabinet) for a "low volume" test.

The OM says the internal speakers are 4 ohm so it's unlikely that a wiring problem with speaker connections would cause all four to stop working. With AC power disconnected from outlet check for an internal speaker protection fuse BUT be careful. Charged capacitors can hold a charge for weeks!!!

It has something loose on the board or where the speaker wires connect. Combo amps are really bad about doing this. The vibrations from the speakers loosen the components on the board.

I tried to plug in a digitech bp200 pedal and then my amp went on the fritz and starterd buzzing loudly. I attempted using the effects loop section on the back of the amp with my bass direct into the amp,...


DO NOT try a guitar pedal as an effects insert via the back jacks... they are for an external line level EQ/Effects type unit. Your guitar pedal should NOT have caused any damage. Check the power adapter you are using with the BP200. The BP200 takes a 9 VAC adapter, NOT a 9VDC type common to most pedals. You cannot use one of the Pedal Train type supplies with the BP200. Also check that you have the in's and out's correct on the pedal... backwards and they will cause what you are observing.. Verify your cables are good. The output of the pedal goes in the FRONT jacks of the amp. ONLY line level drives go to the back jacks.

Amplifier head is working but no sound from speakers. Head tested with external speakers and is OK.


A simple test is to connect internal speakers across an AA battery (for about half a second) & listen for a click as battery is connected & another as battery is disconnected.

If this does not happen, check the internal jack plug connection & its connection to the speakers.

If OK, then you can test each speaker individually using the same battery across each in turn.

If this advice is helpful, I would appreciate a rating.

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..

GK 1001 rb speaker overload, is my guess


This problem is not likely to be a volume control problem. There is a transistor inside that is failing (getting noisy) when heated up. If you have no experience with amp repairs, do not attempt this as it is not simple to locate the defective part. Continued use in this condition can cause problems with the speakers. Please have this serviced by a repair shop with experience with GK gear.

Fuzzy sound when instrument being played


The 1/4" output on your bass needs to be resoldered in 1 or more places. It's very common.
