Hey I'm having troubles with a guitar I have. It's an active pickups. It has a loud static noise at all times, and even more so when turning the volume pot. Made a video...



Any ideas?

Dead batteries do strange things in active guitars effects pedals etc. for sure.

Yeah I remember the first time the battery started to really fade with my EMG I was freaking out for a minute then it just died. I don't even want to talk about some of the crazy noises my effects pedals have made with dying batteries.

OP remember to always unplug the cord from your bass after playing or it will drain the battery.
