    Hey guys! just joined the forum and i'm hoping to learn a lot.

    My bass guitar right now has no sound coming out of the amp. When i plug it in and play a string the built-in tuner on the amp recognizes what notes i'm playing, but no sound


    Any help will be awesome!


    THANKS
     
  2. The guitar, the chord and the pre-amp stage in the amp are good. The problem is between the preamp and the output stage. Time to take it to a tech.

    Did you mute the amp???
    The amp normally has a switch. When the tuner is on, the sound is out ...

    The bass seems to be okay ...
     
  4. maybe a bad speaker connection...

    If a guitar works, the bass should work too???
    And if the built in tuner works right, there is a "right" signal from the bass ...

    Which amp do you use? Built in tuner can mean Roland, TC and many more ...
     
  8. I really shouldn't respond, but, coffee out my nose.
