    It could be one of the bypasses of one of the pedals or one of your cables or a noisy power supply. The best way to figure this kind of thing out is to go one link in the chain at a time. Run your bass into a single pedal then out to your amp, then connect another, then connect another until you find the culprit.

    I don't see this in your list, but every volume pedal except the Morley models are tonesuckers.
