    My bass buzz with i fret the 1st note on the E string... why this happens? Also its buzz at the thinnest string when i am playing higher notes? Can someone help me to solve the problems?

    Lastly, when i plug the cable in my bass, something there is no sound, then it will give out some loud pop, weird noise. Is my input jack loose? How can i solve this problem?

    Please advice

    the bass buzzing could be just a setup problem or the action is too low, Trying giving it some relief. If that doesnt work you could maybe try getting your frets crowned. Some lower quality basses just do that, what kind of bass is it?

    The second question is a little harder. Maybe the cables broken, maybe the batterys dead in the bass, maybe the electronics are dead. If it makes a loud pop then the amp probably works.
