right people
a bought myself an ibanez k5 off the net
first time playing it i got an awful crackling out of the amp
so i changed amp thinkin it was that because it wiz an old amp but it continued
so i changed the battery because its an active bass
still no change
i get about 5 mins worth of playing then the crackling comes back and drives me mad
last option would be 2 send it back cause i dont want 2 wait like 2 month 4 them 2 get it back in stock
any1 have any ideas/ advice
it would b very much appreciated

Try a different amp lead.

it might be a bad 1/4" connector in the amp or bass itself. Take the case off of the amp and make sure its connecting fine, then check out the guitars connection from the inside.

I fell asleep on my arm once, scariest thing that ever happened to me. I thought it was kill.

The input jack is probably broken. If it's heavily used, that might be the case.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Dodgy connection then. Most likely in the input jack of amp, output jack of bass or in a dodgy lead.

It was happening to me once and the wires inside and my cable was fine, so I changed the batteries and it was fine.
