Amplifi 75 with bass guitar

Recommended Posts

I know this is not the typical use for this amp but as I saw in other threads/places, it's supposed to work well when you play at reasonable volume in your living room, which is what I want to do.

 

I got my amp today, updated to latest firmware, and when I plug in the bass, there is no sound going out. 9V battery is brand new, volume on guitar is turned up. Plugged in a Jay Turser standard non-bass guitar and sound comes out clearly. Bass works when plugged in a computer.

 

Anything special needs to be done to make a bass work with that amp? Bass model is Yamaha TRBX304.

Yes I've tried the tones search but I still don't hear anything with my bass whereas my non-bass guitar works perfectly. I'll try specific profiles where the amp has "bass" in it's name but I don't think it will change anything, because even with "no amp" it's dead silent.

Nope, it works fine with the Rocksmith cable.

 

I found the issue. I'll look like the worst n00b ever but for the sake of the next one that don't know what's going on: I had a stereo cable instead of a mono. Somehow the stereo worked fine with the guitar, probably because of the internals of the jack made contact with the correct part of the plug. Unfortunately I wasn't so lucky with the bass, so that's why it was dead silent with every amp I tried with that cable.

 

Bought the correct instrument cable and everything is fine now :)

Sorry for bumping this thread... But finally someone with this amplifi 75 AND a bass guitar  :D 

 

Please do tell what do you think of the amp... does it comply with your expectations? I'm a beginning bass player as well, and bought a Fender Rumble 15 to start with, but looking to upgrade my sound system for my laptop. In my search i stumbled upon this amplifier with the with Bluetooth connection for my laptop as wel as an amplifier for my bass!.

 

So im excited to hear how it sounds with the bass guitar.
