Hey everyone. I recently purchased the ernie ball music man sub(with active pups) from a local store. It is a very kickin bass. I love everything about it. Ok, now to the problem. I just started to notice this strange noise, and I'm not entirely sure where it is coming from. When I turn up the treble on my bass and amp(Ampeg BA115) I notice this slight electronic buzzing coming from the amp. Then when I touch the G string it makes this audible pop which sounds like a static shock. (could this just be caused from static electricity?... i do have carpet in my house) I can't tell if it is my bass's electronics or the amp. I did replace the battery in my bass to see if that would fix it... no luck there. I am taking the bass in to the store this weekend to see if they can help me figure out the problem, but I just wanted to get some of your opinions as well. Thanks in advance.... rock on!
