    Good Squier, bad Squier?

    Squier is a brand name owned by Fender since 1965, so it is Fender that switched production. Squier never opened any kind of plant to produce guitars or basses. It really is just a brand name now, and has been for decades, previously V.C.Squier was a string manufacturer.

    Fender bought the Squier brand in 1965. USA Squiers were made 1989 - 1990.

    Can you hear it?!

    Yes me too on the panning, a bit like stereo phasing ?

    Can you hear it?!

    Because I would expect to have reduced high frequency top end loss at my age, and playing in loud bands for decades would exacerbate this What I find strange is there is a 10Khz ish ceiling above which nothing happens. If the frequencies sloped off then yes, but it appears that they just stop However much you pump up the volume The dog whistle analogy is a good one does it also apply to to old mutts ?

    Tried it again with a set of consumer headphones - the low bass is about the same I take Dood's point that with so many variables in play this kind of thing is in no way a scientific test, and is really just a bit of fun here on Basschat What I've found strange is the way that above a certain frequency I cannot hear anything at all. Turning the volume up makes no difference, almost like using some kind of super hard limiter - that's your lot mate nothing more, move along please...

    Can you hear it?!

    As I've had tinnitus for years I listened through a set of Tannoy Reveal monitors instead of headphones (just in case it kicked the tinnitus up a notch) 31Hz to 9.4KHz is as good as it got with my born in the fifties lugholes At first I wondered if the Tannoys were capable of producing the real low end signal, holding my thumb on the speaker cone seems to suggest that indeed they can I can't hear that at all While this thread is still in it's infancy, would it be possible to also include results for the lowest frequency, seems like an opportunity missed ? Thanks Al interesting stuff

    Amp popping in the second half of gigs

    Just suggesting all that above as a first step, unfortunately there could be lots of possible reasons, but a new battery is going to be needed at some point anyway.

    I'd get a good branded replacement battery and try that first. They have a date printed on the packaging. I left a lead plugged into an active bass once, which meant the circuit was drawing power and drained the battery. The contacts in the battery compartment were covered in that green verdigris gunk, so if that has happened either now or in the past, in needs cleaning up. You could get an intermittent contact and maybe that could cause the popping, particularly if you are jumping about and throwing shapes at the end of the evening 😃 Leaving the gear in the car is not a good idea, dread to think how many times I've been guilty of that😶
