    Er, how about bass, mid, treble (active EQ)?

    It would help if you'd tell us WHAT kind of copy you have.


    ...and about YOUR knob, you'll gonna find out sooner or later :D ;)
     
  3. Plug in the bass. Play a string. Turn the knobs. And find out what they do.

    if it is a ""less quality"" copy ( not saying that yours is ) , it may be a 'dummy knob', in that the knob does absolutley nothing. i think ibanez or sombody used to do this ( or still does??? ). ah well. maybe check the wiring and see if its connected like the others. good luck

  7. Thats gotta be the best thread title I've yet seen at TB. It took me ten minutes to stop laughing.
     

  8. Same, maybe not ten minutes but i logged on saw it, laughed and went "off topic here we come..." only to find it was serious. lol

    I do agree with one of the comments about plugging in the bass, and just playing with/adjusting the control pots (haha i avoided the word knob:p). Get familiar with your own bass!

    "You tell us!!"




    Maybe you could get on one of those TV shows.......or a healthy career in the adult film industry?

    Serious answer for a serious thread. You cannot get a more serious, scientific, medical answer than the one I gave. ;)

    Just waiting for someone to post the question "How do I adjust my nut?"...

    :D
     
  20. heh heh heh, you said knob.

    what depresses me is that as young as I think I am there are people who are too young to know what that is a reference to. But at least there are also still people who are too old also.
