    Hello!

    My Affinty P tends to crackle above a certain volume level, no mattter if through a 15W Fender Rumble Amp or a 300W active and mixer. Do more expensive basses have the same probelm? Is it the PUs? Or the wiring? Any upgrading advice?

    Thank you!

    Wiring issue. Its probably a dirty pot.

    Yes, the pots do crackle when turned, actually both volume and tone. So what's to do? Change the wiring?

    They make a pot cleaning spray that can be used if you take off the pickguard. If that doesnt solve it, it may need to be rewired. But I would think that would fix it.
