    You said you have it plugged into a power conditioner correct?

    Also worth cleaning out any effects loops, sends, or returns the amp has. Those jacks often have switches in them to divert signal when the cable is plugged in. If dust, dirt, or corrosion builds up in the jack it can short, or half-short the switches making the amp do weird things. Start by just running a cord in and out of any of those jacks the amp has, that can often clear them out.

    It is exactly this reason that the jacks can get dirt and dust built up in them ;)

    Does it make the noise through the headphones as well as through the speaker?

    You could take the bass and amp to another location (friends house for example) and see if it does it there.

    Have you tried another bass through your amp at home?

    Have you tried another instrument cable? Also, what kind of cable are you using - make sure it's not directional. I remember some older Monster cables are directional. One side (I think it was the amp side) had an extra shield that was left floating on the instrument side. Get it reversed and you could have noise issues. It's a long shot, but I'm trying to cover all the basses. (Pun intended)

    Edit - dont use older Monster cables as the connector tips had a habit of breaking off inside a barrel jack (like the ones used on Warwicks) and its difficult to extract it without destroying the jack.

    I tried it all to no avail.
    The noise on headphones is almost completely gone and there is no noise at all coming when I go thru interface and laptop
