    Hi to everyone,
    I have found so many solutions in this forum that I like to share a solution that I have found myself to my problem.

    the problem
    I have a fender jazz deluxe, and sometimes it buzz a lot, sometimes means that at home with a peavey basic 112 buzz a lot; where I paly with my band with a peavey tnt buzz a little, and at gigs sometimes yes and sometimes not. :crying:
    The buzz always stop when I touch some metal part on the bass (strings, bridge etc.) :bawl:
    I have tried many things (electronic shield and others), but nothing works. I have always tought it depends by the instrument. :scowl:

    the solution
    some days ago I have noticed that at home the buzz stops also when I touch screws or metal parts on the ampli.
    So I have tried to give a new ground to the system: I keep an electric wire, one end srewed to a screw on the ampli and the other to a metal part (no painted) of the heater (it runs to all building).
    Now at home no more buzz at all. :hyper:
    I have asked around and someone have told me that could happen when the ground system of the building is no good
