    Just out of curiosity, what kind of bass is it?

    Also what kind of pre-amp was it?

    Did it help?

    Usually, feedback is caused by microphonic pickups (they make a loud thud when you tap on the housing with a finger), not the electronics.
    Remedy is waxing the pickups (e.g. with Fender style pups, highend pups like Bartoninis are already sealed) or getting new ones.
