    I have the pre-amp tube model and I need to understand how to use the Gain, Volume nand Master come into play to to set the overload light.

     

    I've read on Talkbass, that one should set the Volume all the way down and then set the light using set the Gain. I've tried many combinations and have failed. To me, for the master , it should not matter where that control is. 

     

    Is there a schematic to undertsand the signal order, that would help

     

    Thanks for any help!

      WilliamR The GAIN knob adjusts the amount of preamp level. The general rule of thumb is when the clip light is blinking, the bass tone starts to go into preamp distortion.
      VOLUME knob (BV1001T only) compensates for boosts in the signal from the GAIN knob. It also affects the level of the FX LOOP SEND jack.
      The MASTER knob adjusts the overall output of the amplifier. The general rule of thumb is to start with the master volume low and dial in your gain and overall channel volume to get the tone you desire, then the master volume controls the overall output to your speakers without changing the tonality of your tone you just dialed in.

      Are you saying the only way to control the LED is from the bass itself? When you turn down everything LED will still light up. For example- if want to be clean, I'd estimate the master position. Pin the volume and use the gain as a volume control. I don't use effects

      Dale_M Sorry to hear of this, it sounds like the internal PSU is dying, if this is brand new and within 30 days you would be quicker to go back to the seller, if you are outside this period please go to the above Support tab and select a Service ticket for submission

    Hi there! I bought a 1990 infinium new a few months ago. 

    Still has the factory tubes. Today after half hour of use, in red channel output lost all bass and gain. The sound was really bad and thin. Immediately i checked the green channel, and with the gain at 5 and volume at 7 it was super quiet. 

    All infinium LEDs are off so i guess I don't have any power tubes broken. Is there something wrong with the preamp tubes?

     

    What are my options here? Thanks

      Nigel67 Hi Meerkat2022. Please submit a technical support ticket and we will be able to help you further and if the unit is found to be faulty, advise you about getting the unit repaired as if you purchased it brand new just a few months ago it should still be under warranty. To submit a ticket, this can be done by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page. A new window will open. Scroll down and click on the Technical Support tab. Many thanks

    How can I record using the Bugera PS1 with the attenuation at zero volume so there is no room noise?

    Can it be used with my guitar amplifier without a speaker attached with no damage to my amp?

    Thanks.

      NicJonesMT Hi Chris. Unfortunately we cannot provide any information on availability or pricing.
      Your best option would be to contact Sweetwater directly to see if they can provide an ETA on when they will receive stock.

      chrisbliss7 Yes I followed the link and no no one has it. I ordered the last possible one on Amazon because they did say they had one in stock now they're saying that it's unavailable or they can't find it. I just want to know what's up at the Factory are they done making amps? Is Bugera going out of business?
