    Lo all, i just bought a new bass guitar, Yamaha RBX 375 5-String Electric Bass. It doesn't seem to work on my practice amp, it worked fine on my bass before which was an aria (not what model it was). The amp is a peavy micro bass practice amp (20 watts)
    Any ideas?
    cheers
     
  2. Stick an instrument cable into the amps input, turn the amp up a little and touch the end of the cable, if it makes a sound, then the amps fine, if it doesnt its either the cable or the bass

    Have you tried changing the battery in the preamp on the bass?

    You can't leave an active bass plugged in all the time or you drain the battery.

    :D
