Hi, I've just recently bought an Ashdown Mag 300 and 4x10 cab and Im using a squier p bass with it. The amps been great so far, but it seems my bass output is too low, as the vu meter hardly moves. Even with the input set to 3oclock the needle will barely move and usually hovers around 20% when playing normally. Ive searched the forums and Ive read that the input level should be set so that the needle occasionally peaks into the red during normal playing. The only time this has happened is when I set the input to 100%. My question is, does putting the input gain this high damage the amp in anyway? Thanks.
