I'm not sure what's wrong with it. When I plug it into my PA I can here every small sound. When I just touch the strings it sounds really staticy. When I touch the string to the fret you can here the clicking sound. This is really annoying. Any household things I can put on them to stop? I know there is stuff you can buy but we don't have any music stores around here.

it's because of the piezo

I put my tobacco under my upper lip, just like anyone would do.

Yamaha RGX A2, Fender FM 212R.

What's a piezo?
I don't run it through an amp and I don't have a treble setting on my bass only volume and tone.
