    If I can play an electric guitar through a bass amp, can i still hook up an effects pedal to it? and would it work? ( for instance if I turn the bass down and the treble up?)

    So if I can play an electric guitar through a bass amp, can I hook an effects pedal to, like a digitech? and would it work like if I turn down the bass and turn up the treble?

I sounds unusual at first because many bass amps have a wider range of tone controls(graphic eq,etc.) and some bass cabs actually have a tweeter. Broader freq response but little natural amp distort or breakup. Need boxes.

I heard it starts to sound muddier after a while, but I think if you use a EQ pedal it sounds decent, or at most a less muddy sound.

What are some instruction about learning bass guitar?


Yes, it is easy to start playing bass but (depending on the kind of music you want to play) takes a great deal of practice to really play it well.

When i play my bass through my amp it is really loud but when i go round my tutors for lessosns he has to turn his amp way up to get any sound at all.


His amp probably has lower gain. They vary quite a bit. Also the size of the speaker will affect it a bunch. If his is a tiny practice amp your bass will not generate much noise.

This bass squels if you have a bass head and cabinet. i had a 100W amp and it played fine then upgraded to a head/cab. tryed playing it with loud volume, squels. anyway to fix this?


Turn down the treble gain and mid gain... you don't need it for a bass. Prevent the guitar from "hearing" the output of the amp directly. The guitar strings make a good microphone.

Takamine eg523sc... the bass string (6th) is about 30% less in volume as the other strings what could i do to correct this problem?


You should take this to a guitar shop for setup. If you have correct strings on there the other thing is to check any EQ of whatever you run this into... If the amp can't handle the real low bass, it MAY appear to be a guitar problem but in fact is an inadequate frequency response at the low end in the amp and speaker.

ALSO some people believe it or not get deaf in the low range if they have damaged their ears when young. Procure a sound meter to VERIFY the sound intensity level... You may find the level is the same for the different strings.

The weak spot for bass is the SPEAKER in the amp.

Bass strings are too loud in comparison to treble strings whe played through the amp


Adjust this using the EQ on the amp and to a lesser extent the tone controls on the guitar.

Often people boost the bass way up causing this problem.

I have a Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass thats makes this really really loud buzzing earthy sound. It seems to happen spontaneously, in fits and starts, but particularly if the cable input on the bass is...


This sounds like either a bad guitar cable or a bad jack in the guitar. Possibly your friend is not as qualified to find these intermittent problems as needed? These jacks are really junky and often have riveting of the barrel come undone... especially if the retaining nut is overtightened. The LONG barrel like jacks are notorious for failing. You have all the information you need to solve this problem. First try a different guitar cable... (often they are broken or intermittent at the end where they flex). If that doesn't fix it, replace the jack in the guitar. Also verify that the conductive coating paint within the guitar is grounded. Sometimes the contact to it is destroyed when the volume control shafts or jacks become loose and they depend upon the shaft barrel to ground the paint.

Bass Guitar Keeps sound keeps cutting in and out.


There is an inconsistency in your text. You indicate that cables were swapped and problem still existed...
You said:... "i have tried using it on a different amp and still fine".

If you tried it on a different amp and it was still fine then the guitar is probably OK.

THEN your amplifier is in question as the root of your problem.

What is the amp you have? The guitar is the CB-42, but what amp do you have?

MANY intermittent problems with amplifiers are often with the input jack itself. These jacks are easily broken by tripping over a cable plugged into them.
