Ground/60Hz hum from Fender jazz VB
Hello TBers, I know this is probably an age old thread that's been chucked up on here plenty of times but here goes... just recently, myself and a bass buddy have been contemplating doing a trade of basses but we're trailing each others before the deal is cemented. My Lakland 44-02 (plus cash) for his Fender jazz Victor Bailey. I really do like this bass, tone wise, build and playability. At home it sounds fine, virtually no background noise etc. Upon practicing in a band situation at an old hut, I get a prominent buzz, crackling hum similar to the 60Hz cycle hum. It disappears when I touch any hardware or the strings. I've looked inside the cavity and it seems to be well grounded and shielded. Also when I engage my overdrive pedal the hum is completely eliminated. Which is great but I don't want to always use the tone of the overdrive pedal, even with the drive setting down. I was wondering if I could get any feedback back off some of you guys, possibly links to other threads, YouTube videos etc.
