Greetings, I'm a novice bass player and over the past few days my bass started producing a frequent but inconsistent static noise which I haven't heard before. Recording of the static noise. Recorded with very high gain and then amplified since it doesn't record at nearly the volume I hear it, hence the higher frequency 'usual' static. This isn't caused by the cable I'm using or the recording device, since the noise only occurs with the specific instrument plugged in. Nor is it caused by a dead battery, current battery is about a month in use and the noise continued occurring with two other batteries, both new. I'm guessing that it's something to do with the battery wiring in my bass, but before I pop it open or take it to a tech I figured it's best I ask people with a bit more experience. As importantly as the possible cause: Is this a common static noise? edit: Bass in question is an Ibanez SR300EL, plugged into Steinberg UR22ii.
