    Dont mistake me, i love my pandora and i think it has improved my playing alot but it's abit noisy..
    I have to keep the bass under 1(of 12) if i dont want a heavey distorted tone, is there anyway to fix this because i like bassy sounds...

    You are probably overloading your amp input.
    Try reducing the gain on the amp and/or the pandora and use the "master" knob to turn the volume up.

    To avoid this I usually plug into "effects return" or "power in" and use it as a preamp.

    Its not designed to be used as a preamp. Its output is a stereo headphone output. Wrong level to plug into the instrument input of a bass amp.

    If you insist on using it through an amp, get a stereo to mono converter plug, and plug the pandora into the effects return of your amp, NOT the instrument input.
