I have a crappy (I'll admit) Peavey Minx 110 (the older version with the metal type logo) and I've been having this problem when every time I plug in my bass and turn it on, it doesn't work. I have to turn it up high on the volume knob and slap the e string really hard to get it to work, some times this doesn't even work. I know its not the cord because I've used it on other bass amps and had no problem playing. I was just wondering if anyone has had the same problem and would know how to fix it. Thanks in advance.
