Greetings!

I recently ( a week or so ) bought a cheap bass guitar and amp, and it sounded pretty good unplugged or with low volume.
However, when I turn the volume up I get a weird buzzing sound on some frets.
I have no idea what is causing this because I can see that the string isn't hitting the next fret, and when it's not plugged in it sounds normal... any thoughts?

Need more info.

Is this a buzzing or more of a hum?

If it only does it on certain frets which frets does it do it on?

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

I'd say buzz, but idk...It sounds exactly like when the string is too loose on the nut. It's definitely not fret buzz, because I got that on some higher frets and it sound completely different.

On the E string: frets 2,3,7 to 10
On the A string: frets 3,4,5,14 to 17
On the D string: frets 10 to 13
On the G string: frets 5 to 8

Here's a video. It sounds bad everywhere but that's because of camera quality. But the sound it makes is pretty much that.

is the buzz coming from the bass itself or is it just your bass amp farting out?

sounds like a small amp, that might be it

Damn, that's your amp man. The video convinced me.

And I dearly hope that's not your guitar amp you're using. It will blow on you.
