    Anyone else play Bass?

    Anyone else around here play Bass, my bass took a turn for the worst today I was playing fine then nothing but static everythings connected it's not my patch cord or amp it does the same when I plug into my brothers amp. Any advice on what kind of bass I should look into that won't break the bank? the bass I have now is a Ibanez Ergodyne. I play all sorts of stuff from Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, to oldies so im not looking for anything thats for a specific play style.

    Thanks.
    Brett

    Brett,
    Check the cable again and try it with another. After that open it up and check the connections on the jack and work towards the electronics.
    There is nothing in there that cannot be repaired and will be cheaper than a new bass.
    I don't play personally but I used to be a stage tech and have seen this type of thing before.

    He is right. just follow it back and break ou tthe volt meter.......and if that fails you can buy a new bass and then buy my rig to make your ears bleed

    Thanks for the advice, I had another look at the electronics and found one of the jack wires broke off and there was 2 wires in 1 sleeve so it didnt look like anything was wrong, its all back and working so i can get back to being the horrible bassist i am.

    thanks again for the help.

    First off... We ALL know that the joke is supposed to be ...How do you get a DRUMMER of your porch??? Secondly Im pretty sure Ibanez Ergodynes are active (9 volt battery pre amp) Change the battery!!!! You dont have to buy a new bass... There's always a way to fix it. Im the General manager of a pretty big Guitar Center store here in NJ. If you cant find someone to fix it or you want to discuss youroptions for a new bass call me at the store...

    Bassman 100 with 2x15's or 4x12's? I had the latter and will regret getting rid of it forever. My ampeg is nice but something about classic tubes can't be replaced.
