CARVIN SB5000 WITH (2) J99A pups... noice issues

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by canusaybass, Dec 29, 2017.


  1. Picked up a Carvin SB5000... It has a volume knob for both J99A pups. The bass has no hum as long as both volume knobs are 100% open. When you turn either knob down the bass hums.
    I'm sure someone has a quick fix for me... Thanks for your help and assistance!
    Blessings!

    It's a single coil thing. It'll do that. Stacked or split coil pickups (humbucking) will be your only fix for that.
     
  3. If it makes the same noise when you're touching the knobs, there's nothing you can do about it.
