Greeting fellows bassers and bassees (maybe it would be bassi) But that is besides the point. Okay, I own a Gallien Krueger 115 Backline amp, it has never let me down, has always had a great tone, and been a joy to own until recently. Recently, the amp shorts out a lot, there suddenly is no sound, and it kind of just "fizzles" out in the middle of my playing, which of course sucks. So, when this happens, I normally turn my amp off, wait a few seconds, then turn it back on and it works until the next "fizzle". Okay, now to clarify anything that is being thought right now. No, it is not the chord I am using because, I also own a small 15 watt practice amp, I played through that, and it never "fizzled" or anything of that sort, nothing happened other than me getting angry. Please help, I just got my American Fender Jazz Bass, and I want to play it through something with a good sound. Thanks in advance!
