"G" String is funky through my 212XLT.
« on: May 22, 2008, 12:42:25 PM »
I'd like everyone's ideas on what's going on.
My brand new passive Fender American Standard Jazz's "G" string has an annoying mid-range clack through my 212XLT that I'm not smart enough to figure out. "E", "A", and "D" strings sound GREAT!!!! Driving the cab with the old GK 800, treble at 10:00, hi-mid at 11 to 12:00, low mid 12:00, bass at 12:00, bass boast and treble boost off, mid button in. Aphex bass exciter, everything at 12:00.
I've tried different "eq"ing, didn't like that. Changed pick-up heights, no change. Different G string, no change. Can't see any signs of high/low frets. Taken the Aphex out, no change.  With my Lakeland 44-02 the problem is very much diminshed but still there.
Pluged the head and bass through my old Avatar 115H and the 15" seemed to smooth out the G.
I'm guessing the 212XLT is so efficent it's bring out the imperfections of the poor set-up job I tried to do on the Jazz.
Any ideas?

Turning the 212's tweeter down to at least 9:00 or less should help, but I agree it's probably a setup issue.

Couldn't you have avoided asking about "G" strings. I'm still in therapy over the Dennis thong incident. [:O]

Tell your bass to wear granny panties instead of that G string.

My guess would be that perhaps the way you finger the "G" string uses more down force and you may be pushing the string into the pick up ever so slightly. Now that your done laughing try lowering the pick up or change your hand position. If all else fails cut the wire that goes from the G string to the G spot.

Play that in what key???

Thanks guys...I think!
Discovered a new development, is it possible for the tweeter to "hiss" but not actually be putting any usable sound out?
I can run a finger nail dowm the windings on the round wound strings and get the tickin' sound of the windings through the speakers but not the tweeter.
Plug the head and bass through the Avatar 115H and the tickin' is very audible through it's horn.

What do you have the tweeter attenuator set to?  Nothing even when turned full-blast?

From what I and the wife can tell there's nothing coming from the horn but a hiss,  doesn't matter where the attenuator is set.
Totally off still works.

Question for everyone that's using a 212XLT, have you noticed low horn output with your cab or will your horn take your head off at higher settings?
