bass buzzing need help

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by thesearchbass98, Jul 15, 2012.

  1. I plugged in my Peavey Millennium 4 AC bass today and there was a loud buzzing noise, I thought it was just the batteries but i changed the batteries and still buzzing.I tried another amp and another cable still buzzing.I opened up the control department and everything looked fine,no lose wires or anything.Does anyone know what may be causing the buzzing?

    i would make sure the grounding and everything is fine. also maybe if it needs shielding. could also just be that active pickups do tend to generate some noise.

    More info needed- is the buzzing while playing only, or the whole time you are plugged in? If it buzzes while plugged in, does the buzzing continue if you have your hand on the strings?
