Valid Signal for Tuning - Guitar is Dead

Postby bshadel » Sun Feb 03, 2019 9:33 am

Good morning,

At rehearsal last night I plugged in my Carved Top to a Fractal AX8 and tuned as usual. Stepping out of the tuner into my preset, the guitar was dead.

This morning - same situation. I have a valid signal for tuning but when clicking into the preset there's no output. I've pulled the cover plate and examined all solder joints. All is good here too. I've swapped cables and guitars...nothing wrong there either.

I'm completely baffled as to how I can have a valid signal for the tuner and nothing else.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Do you still have this issue with a different amp/modeler or on a fresh preset in your AX8?

Yes...

I figured out the problem and it's a bad volume pot.
