I wonder if you guys have any ideas what might be causing this. I have a couple of EMG equipped basses and when I unplug them there is a super loud popping sound. When I plug them in it is not as severe. I have cables with neutrik silent pugs but they are just as noisy as the regular ones. I wrapped the jacks with electrical tape inside the cavity just in case something makes contact, but no difference. I have a couple of basses with different electronics ( also active) and there it doesn't happen quite as loud, because those basses don't have as hot of a signal as the EMGs but it is still noticeable. What could be the cause of that? I know,I can just turn down the amp but I bought the silent plug cables to eliminate that step when I change basses on a gig.
