LoL, you guys will prolly yell at me.. but yesterday after playing for an hour... I hear this loud BOOM from my amp so so I shut it in fear of blowing it. I turn it back and plug back into the head.. there's the boom again.. I shut it off.. after 10 min of checking out my amp.. I open up the back of my bass... Crap! one of the wire to the jack is broken off! Crap times two! I don't have a soddering gun(or whatever)! Damn that loose jack! I looked around for something to use... *light bulb* I get this really good tape. First I strip a little bit of the plastic so there's more of the wire exposed. I tape it on really nice. Everything is better now! But.. one thing.. HOW DO YOU KEEP THE JACK FROM GETTING LOOSE?! ...and that's my story.
