if i put the volume of my bass(passive fender jazz) on 10(max), and i play really strong, i get this crackling/distortiony sound. im not sure if its the amp or the bass. my amp is really small(PV microbass) so its possibly that it cant withstand such a loud sound and its possible that my bass is just screwed up. hopefuly the answer here is that my amp is just too small. any ideas?
