    Help me i just bought a new dean edge 09 four string bass, and it seems to hum when i play it.....actually not when i play it exactly but when im just holding it, it doesnt hum when i have my hands across the strings muting them only when im just sitting there. I have another dean playmate that is almost identical, bar the color, the only differences i have made to the basses are that i have filed out the nut for thicker guage strings. the other bass doesnt have that problem so i know its not the amp. any suggestions....?
     
  2. Sounds like a grounding problem. Check to see if the bridge is grounded and that the ground to the pots is good too.
