Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

Buzing to Distraction

  1. :eyebrow: Hi - I recently picked up a Westone fretless recently and I've began to notice (who now?) a buzz when my hands are free of the bass. I've swapped cables and basses and the noise is definately from this bass. If I touch the strings or the metal outer to the jack then the noise dulls.

    I can supress it through my GX-700 effects but that's not the point. Any help please on where I need to get my soldering iron too?

    Regards - Dave.
