    Every once in a while, the bass "clips" or pops.. when the cord to the instrument is moved, this occurs.. but not every time. It does not do this ever for other basses, so it's not the amp, cord, or input jack on the amp. It does not do this all the time.. but it seems when I step around.. I hear a "POP" sound.. through the amp. It's frustrating to have this nice bass doing this. I took it to a repair shop and they found nothing wrong with it. Any suggestions? Besides taking to another repair shop.. or what the problem might be?

    Output jacks get loose with the time... just replace it with a new one. Also dont let your cable hanging from the jack try to curl it around the lower part of the strap.
  3. My Q5 Modulus does the exact same thing sometimes...the input is very tight and clean...I have no idea what it could be.

    I will look at replacing the input jack.. but for a bass this expensive (it was a trade-in), it's disappointing.. what is more disappointing is I called Modulus for suggestions.. they never called back after I left a message.. I e-mailed, called, then called again.. zero response.. not too good for a company that purportedly sells high-end basses.. I still love the bass, though, and would recommend it, but I need to get the problem fixed.
