Markbass amp repair

Postby Ida » March 30th, 2015, 2:53pm

Sounds like my Markbass amp has a loose wire somewhere, maybe a dirty pot..not sure. Making random "fart noises"when I play. Short of sending it back to the manufacturer in Italy, who can I take it to that can look at it? And do NOT tell me JFK Electronics. Thanks!

Why the hate for jfk?
I don't know if they really don't sound all that different in a band context or if years of playing in bands with guitarists have honed my guitarist-ignoring skills to perfection.

crentist.. he really is limited on time, takes way too long, and has limited knowledge in some areas. He had no clue what to do with my Acoustic Corp amps and I'm not risking my main amp in his hands.

Oh, I had no idea.
I've know jeff a long time.
I always thought he was a good dude.

Thank God another bass player was able to assess the situation and determined it was just a dirty connection between the head and the speaker. Steel wool cleaning=good to go.

Yeah I know that. It would've been more hassle than it's worth. It was something simple that wouldn't require shipping across country.
