    Interference, hissy sound when I play my fender roscoe beck!
    The bass is passive, when I went to the studio the producer noticed this interference. But the interference desappears after some seconds. I dont know how to explain it well, but when I put my fingers close to the strings the noise start to get louder, I take off my hand of the strings, the noise is still there, then suddenly dessapears. It is different than the hiss of the ground, sometimes the noise appears when I am playing, lasts for some seconds and then go away. I keep quiet and the noise appears and dessapears, so it has nothing to do with a bad wire that moves and make the noise.
    I could record that day cause the noise dessapeared, now I think it is making that noise more often.
    Now I realize the pole pieces are more sensitive than before.
    Next week I will go to the luthier, but can somebody give any advice of what is the problem??

    pd: To add more info; both pickups are in humcancelling mode in series.

    Maybe its a problem from the studio?
    Does your bass makes that noise in other places?

    it's a passive bass, so i have a hard time believing that noises with a time component (appearing or disappearing after a few seconds) could be coming from the bass.

    try cleaning the many switches (including the push-pull knob) and checking that all metal parts are grounded.
