    I bought a new spector legend classic, and no matter what settings I dial in on the preamp, if I pluck to hard it clips, even on less then full volume and no boost on the tone pump junior...

    Any tips?:bassist:

    A markbass little mark III. I have the gain set at about 1mm above 0.

    It also happens when I go direct in.

    To ask the inevitable: Have you tried changing the battery in the bass?

    By "direct in", you mean going straight to a mixing board?

    Sounds to me like either a short that's preventing the battery current from making it cleanly to the preamp, or possibly dirty contacts on the output jack.
