Little sound with vol up

  1. My Yorkville Bass Master 50 is starting to mess up, though it could be the bass or the cable.

    When I start to play, the sound comes out, but its very light, you can barly hear it.

    I guess i'm asking if anyone knows what it could be. The bass is a fender 5 string J with everything still stock.

    If you need more info, i'll tell.

    The basis for any problem solving is to isolate each element one at a time.

    Bass

    Amp

    Lead

    The easiest thing to do is to change the lead. Now if you can borrow another bass, do so. Now use another amp.

    One of those elments will have a problem. If it's something serious you will have to get a pro to look at it.
