    I have a Warwick Corvette Std with active/passive J pickups, and recently it's been sounding quite buzzy below the 3rd fret or so on the E string, and also the B string.

    This isn't fret buzz, but a buzzy sound coming through my amp, and it's worse when I play louder.

    I know it's not the amp's problem because my other bass makes a really clear sounding low E through the amp, even when played loudly.

    I have a feeling it may be to do with pick-up height or something like that, but I have no real idea. Also, the buzz seems to die off when I cut the highs, I'm not sure if this helps. :crying:

    Any ideas?

    Don't worry folks, I've changed the battery and the problem seems to have fixed itself :D

    That's a VERY COOL piece of equipment to have! Thanks for sharing; I need to grab one of those. I'd be curious to know if it works with an 18v system as well, since my EUB is 18v and I seem to change those batteries a LOT more than any of the 'wicks.

    No :crying: only 9 volt but you can test individual batteries outside the cavity right on the unit to be sure..
