I have a peavy millennium, bxp 5-string. I've been having many, many, issues with it lately. First off, I'm going to be buying s new bass soon, so I dont want to put too much money into it. I have already gotten the input jack replaced because I was having problems with messed up sounds coming out. It had a nasty garbage plastoc one in it. Now its got a nice metal input. Then I got a new pot put in for my pickup fader as the old pot was just too far gone and couldn't be fixed. Inside of this bass is a big circuit board. In which I really despise the fact that peavey did that. Sounds like something apple would do just to get more money (sorry Apple fans!) This means I have to get certain pots for the model and everything (ugh!). My problem is, I'm having really bad volume swells. It only happens when the bass is tipped. I'm thinking about getting a whole new preamp put into it. But I'm not sure what to go with, I don't care for this bass, but if I got a new preamp that made it sound better I'd probably like it a lot. Oh and by the way, it isn't my amp or cord as I have already tried like 8 cords and 4 amps. And its not the outlet I'm plugging it into as I've tried many, and I have put new batterys in because it is equipped with active pickups. Please help soon because I have a gig on Friday that I would like to use my bass at. If all fails for friday I fo have my guitar players 5 string I can use for backup. Thank you guys and girls!
