    What are the the reasons that a bass can fry? i ask this because i had a bass that got fryed, and it was brand new, and i wanted to know if i was doing anything to hurt it. i noticed on my amp that whenever i hit 9 on the volume with my guitar, it gits really scrachy, follewd with a increse in double the sound when i hit 10. can a bass be fryed with a bad cord? i didnt think so. but im running out of reasons. will plucking the strings to close to the pickups make them fry? and by fry i mean it just gos dead. gone. to fly in bass heaven.

    If you have an active bass, check the battery. I'm not joking either. Other than that, have someone look at it. The things you describe doing should not result in what you are hearing.
  3. if you sweat alot, sweat could of gotten into pickups and fried them.
