    Dear Whoever:
    Everytime I hook up, I am fine until i pick up my bass and move it around. I then get a whole bunch of static and feedback until I turn off the amp. This is a problem when I am in class or a concert when i cant get to the amp. What is my problem and how can i fix it?

    Loose wire on the output jack? Wiggle the cable at the bass to see if you can make it stop.

    i agree with stubi19 - sounds like a loose wire inside your instrument. maybe you can take it back to the store and have them take a look at it.
