Weird amp problem...

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by dudemeister, Feb 4, 2002.


  1. I've got an EBS Gorm ET350 2x10 cab.
    When I play my passive basses through it there is no problem, but when I try to play whith my Spector NS20004 (active preamp, passive pickups) I can't get any sound.
    I replaced the battery a couple of weeks ago so there isn't supposed to be any problem there and I've played through a mixer and it works.

    The only sound I get is when I play high up on the E-string (very muffled sound) or slap the E-string (toneless "thud").
    I've checked the volume knobs on both bass and amp and I've checked gain and flatted the EQ. Still - No sound.

    It started a couple of days ago when I was sitting in front of my computer and playing bass. I can't remember doing anything special but it suddenly died as if the amp was turned off.

    Does anybody have a clue what it might be?
