I am getting an awful buzz, not fret buzz, but buzz from the amp. I have tried various amps and it sounds ****ing awful. It just buzzes on everything, and is muddy as hell. I have no idea where to even start looking for problems.......and I don't know if the bass needs repaired.
bad ground on the pickups would be my first guess
Does your bass have Active electronics? And if so, have you tried replacing the battery?
Yeah, it does have active electronics, I didn't even think about that.
