String Buzz

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by BigDean, Dec 8, 2002.


  1. My P-Bass has a pretty loud buzz when you are not touching the strings...I am new to this...what is the problem?

    It is as if I have a ground problem because as soon as you touch the strings it goes away.

    Please help...Thanks. :)

    i dont know too much, but it sounds like its your pickups, you should take it down to your music shop and get them to look at it.
     
  3. i had that problem 2, it was a problem on the electric cirquit (or how you write that), i had no earth-pole ("aarding" in dutch, pls someone translate it!)
     
  4. It IS a grounding problem BigDean, no doubt about it, like C//Limba said. (aarding = ground)
