    So as i was playing around on my bass just now, i realized that the 8th fret of my A string has a high pitched buzzing sound. I know it's not fret buzz because i've raised my action and it has all gone away. This is a much higher pitched buzz that only happens on the 8th fret. It doesnt happen when i slap/pop it either.

    It doesn't show up on recordings when i DI into the soundcard so i dont really have a way to let you listen to the noise.

    Any ideas as to what this could be and how to fix it because it's extremely annoying. Thanks

    Pickups too close to strings? Bad fret?
