Quote from: gumbo on April 03, 2023, 07:16:29 PMCheck and clean the contacts of the multiplugs that connect the pickup to the PCB inside the GK3B, and the (in the GR-55) those that connect the Roland 13-pin jack to the mainboard.Each of these exercises require a degree of dismantling to gain access...if you don't understand how to do that, ask questions.Buy a can of DeOxit to do the cleaning.Do NOT put solder on pins that are designed to plug into something else.
Quote from: xcession on April 04, 2023, 07:37:51 AMThanks for the advice on pins. I mostly work with eurorack synth modules, and I'm happy to do any stupid thing to make things work, like hardwiring pin connections and jumpers and things. I'll wick off the solder on the pin. Can you direct me to any link's where you've previously dismantled the GK3? Sometimes there are more than just screws, like hidden clasps. I'm pretty sure I'll be fine on opening the GR-55. I have DeOxit. Tried IPA first and then DeOxit.

Quote from: xcession on April 07, 2023, 05:49:59 AMWow, Bill. What an education. Thanks. I'm doing it all.That said, in my situation, I was using a brand new GK-3B out of the box directly from Roland, and I had the same problem with 3 old cables and 3 brand new ones. But still, I need to know all this stuff. Thanks heartily.
Quote from: gumtown on April 08, 2023, 12:16:27 AMIf using the GK-3B (bass version) you need to correctly setup the pickup pole useage, if set wrong the G string will not register if used for a 4 or 5 string Bass.
Quote from: gumbo on April 08, 2023, 12:26:27 AMDang ! I always forget that little mess-waiting-to-happen...thanks Colin....down to one bass these days and it currently doesn't have the GK attached...
