Lutheir: is it my amp?

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by jarmceT, Jun 20, 2002.

  1. hello

    i've been playing for a bit over 6 months. i own a squir p-bass and my amp is a bp-15.

    my concern:
    for the past month a weird static sound comes up every time i play my bass with my amp. the sound is very annoying and it gets in the way of the actual sound of my bass. this static sound is moslty heard when i play the a & e strings.

    my question:
    what do you think is causing the static noise?
    is it the amp itself? or is it the pickup, a cable or the strings?
