Static noise with humbucker pu

    Hello guys, im new here, and i've been admiring the bass for sometime, but only get to buy one a few days ago. It's a really old nameless 2nd hand bass but a fine and cheap one for a first bass, i've been practicing for 3 days and there's a problem.

    See, i borrow an Rolland Cube 60 from a neighbor for practice, he plays guitar. I think it's a guitar amp but it's quite big and get the bass sound just fine so it'll do until i can get together some money to buy my own amp. The split humbucker pu on the bass produce some really nasty static noise when i crank up the volume. if i keep muting the 1st and 2nd string then it's quiet, but if i touch the pu it gets even louder.

    I dont know what the problem is, and this forum should be a good place to start asking question. So does anyone have any idea how to fix this?
