    How close are you standing to your amp? Also, are there any electronics in the direction you're facing when you hear buzz?

    thanks for all the replys,
  6. I have the same Bass, explain the static your hearing, I dont hear any from mine. What kind of instrument cable are you using? are you using any effects? Make sure you are using an instrument cable and not a speaker cable. Is your amp properly grounded?
