I have a Peavey Cirrus bass I like it. I have had it for 3 weeks. When I first got it had a distorted sound. We changed the batteries in the store. The distortion went away,in about a week,it came back. I changed both batteries,in a week it came back. I put Energizer 9 volt batteries in,they ran out in about 7 days. What do you all think is causing this?
