    Hello I hope you are all doing well!

    I think my full circle is fried, when I plug the bass I get very low output, and when I start to get something there is a lot of parasite in the sound.

    I haven't been using it much lately playing in orchestra or jazz gig without an amp is easy, but now that I had the bad surprise I'd rather not make it happen again, I never know when I'll need it.

    So I am wondering anyone have idea what it could be is there anything I can? Can it be repair I saw some thread in the wheel, my only problem is money now, so if repair cost more than a 100 I might just get a cheap back up(K&K big twin) for now and repair it when the money won't be a problem.

    Anyone has a similar experience?

    My very old Full Circle was slowly loosing volume and tone. If you have one of the relatively new one's, it should be fixable. Just call Fishman and ask. If it not fixable, bite the bullet and get a new one if that's the sound you like. The K&K is a very different sound all together and at the very minimum requires a 10 megohm (or close) buffer preamp.
