    I have zon sonus standard made in Korea. Really great instrument and great value for money too.
    Recently I'm experiencing some volume related issues. Once in a while sound just comes and goes, or volume goes down and up again. When it occurs it lasts for a few seconds, sometimes a minute or two. More facts:
    It doesn't happen very often, but when it does it's very annoying
    Using a 9 volt battery
    It hapoened with different amplifiers and different PLs
    The issue persisted the longest while using a DI
    Battery replaced - didn't help
    PL entrance replaced - didn't help
    Took it for a setup and the dude didn't find any problem (naturally the issue didn't occur while in setup)

    I'm curious if there are people here using the same bass that experienced this and tell me if it's something that has to do with it's production.

    Does it have a barrel jack?

    Yes, I replaced it. Adding a photo to make sure we talk about the same piece
