  1. Just bought a fender deluxe 5 string jazz, active bass but my ampeg combo doesn;t like it....way too much buzzing. Any recommendations on amp for this baby.

    Do you mean (fret)buzzing or distortion?

    1. Do a setup

    2. Check the battery

    3. lower the input gain on the ampeg.
  3. Not fret buzz. The amp makes a loud buzzing when the active jazz is plugged in. The two passive basses I have sound great through it but the active jazz sounds#@"<X!!!!!!.

    When i run the active jazz through my small 10" peavy combo, its as quiet as a sleeping mouse.

    Both 9 volts in the active are new and seem ok.

    Is this common in active basses?
