    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?
     
  2. My guess would be that maybe the amp speaker can't handle that much power??
     
  3. Ya that happens from me 2, and i like it, i love distortioan! im metalhead :bassist:
