    I have a Fender Bassman 400 Head and it has a yellow ligh next to the gain knob. How concerned should I be to keep the light out? It seems that if I adjust the gain down or reduce the volume on the Bass itself the volume is low.
    I am playing a variety of Basses through the Fender Amp and a Fender Bassman 410 Cabinet

    I set my gain by;
    #1 setting the master volume at 0
    #2 set the gain so the light flashes( or on for a few seconds) when I hit the open E with a hard attack.
    #3 adjust the master volume for required level.
    I see my gain light flash now and then when playing but not constantly .

    I have 3 basses at the moment and all require a slightly different gain setting for optimal preformance.
