    I have a Fender Rumble100 combo bass amp, and recently the AMP makes crackle noises when i move around. the sound seems to get even worse when the tone knob is turned up on my bass.

    What could the problem be, and how can i fix this?

    p.s. i dont have alot of money, so i need a cheap way to repair this.

    If your house is very dry, this could be static electricity. I find this to be more prevalent in the winter months, particularly with an active bass, such as my Marcus Miller J-bass.

    i dont think its that because this happens everywhere i play, at home, practice, and it has even happened at shows.

    Have you tried a different guitar cable?

    Are any of your bass' or amp's jack retaining nuts loose?

    Is there another amp (at a nearby music store perhaps) that you could test your bass with?
