I play a Schecter Omen 4 (which you may know comes with active pickups) through an Ampeg B1RE Bass Head and B410HE 4x10 cab. For some reason the closer I play to the pickups, the more buzzing I get coming through the speakers. I figured this could be one of several different problems. Could it be the pickups themselves? Could it be the strings I currently have on the bass (I had to throw cheap ones last minute before a show and I have not changed them since)? Or could it be the speakers themselves? While I am playing I strum in a very sensitive way and the bass can not even be heard with the rest of the band playing. The only time I don't get buzzing is when I strum closer to the bridge and that doesn't give out a very heavy bass tone that one would desire. If someone could explain to me what the problem is and how I could go about correcting it please help me out!
