Ifg the instrument can hear an amplifier it may be feeding back. Turn down the high treble in an EQ and move away from any speakers.

    How to Choose A Good Beginner Guitar


    Many guitar beginners go for acoustic guitar as their 1st guitar. It not a bad idea to get started with acoustic guitar. Listed here are a few greatest acoustic guitar models you can take into account when you buy your 1st beginner guitar.
    Being a Japanese electric corporation, Yamaha began to make all kinds of instruments include guitars and grew to be a brand-new star in the market . Their guitars targeted at all kinds of customers from learners to skilled musicians.An example of the quality affordable beginner acoustic guitars they supplied is Yamaha FG700S. This model has a solid spruce top and laminate sides and back with the good tone just cost you about 200 bucks. Most beginner's acoustic guitars usually have high action that is the gap between guitar strings and fretboard. The sound of this Yamaha guitar models is very excellent regardless of the high action of the factory setting.
    Fender is a reputable electric guitar provider and provides consumer with its Fender type electric guitars. Fender acoustic guitar is not just as popular as its electric guitar. Yet the low end entry level line of Fender acoustic guitars are also the number 1 choice for some beginning learners. On most online shopping websites, you could find Fender acoustic guitar. One of the best entry level acoustic guitar model of Fender is the Starcaster acoustic guitar. It owns solid top and laminated back and sides, that is great for its price tag. In brief, Fender Starcaster is an inexpensive beginner guitar.
    Alvarez is a guitar brand that is not as famous as other giant companies. The Regent series from Alvarez is affordable as well as built with premium quality. This model has solid top and Dreadnought size. The sound is deep and powerful. You might feel it is a more expensive model if you hear it the first time because the tone is quite distinctive and awesome. The price of Alvarez Regent is about TWO HUNDRED bucks which is very appealing and might be the greatest affordable solid top guitar model.
    I will be really pleased if the information above could help you find the perfect entry level guitar model. To get more details on guitar models and brands for beginners, check out Beginner Guitar

    Is the red light indicator ment to stay on all the time when playing, or is this a warning light to let me know that the battery is low .Thanks and kind regards Neil


    Simple test to try: Put in a brand new battery... If light goes out, then it is a low battery warning.

    HOWEVER, it is likely a warning that battery is on so you don't forget to turn it off when done. Tried to find manual for it and could not. Your manual should tell about it.

    Dirty high switch on a Crate practice amp


    NEVER use switch cleaner such as DeOxit on pots !!!!!

    I have used CRC226 available at Home Depot electrical dept.

    I SUSPECT that the resistance element in that pot is cracked. This is common if the knob sustained a hit. Replacing the pot is the only cure if the element is cracked.

    Reviewing the schematic, ALL audio passes through the wiper on the HIGH tone pots. If the wiper is intermittent, so will be the sound.

    If your unit is solid state amp, the pot looks like a 10K ohm LINEAR taper.
    If you have a tube type, then the pot is a 250K ohm LINEAR.

    Note that the other tone pots in the units are AUDIO tapers, but the high is a linear taper.

    Get repair parts from either DigiKey.com or Mouser.com
