When ever I turn my tone nob down on my Jbass I always seem to pick up a radio station through my amp? Is there anyway to stop this from happening?

When that happens to me i usually just try and move the amp around. It usually works, sometimes it doesnt.

move the amp, or shield the **** out of it!


I suggest move it, or if it is tube, get some less microphonic tubes
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

Try shielding your electronics cavity. You would use copper or some other metal to do this. I think you can find copper tape at a DIY or home improvement store.

I think it's the bass. He said it only happens when the tone knob isn't on full which is when it's not bypassed. Is the tone pot grounded?

Find a lead plate and put it behind your amp. LOL!

Seriously tho, move your amp. Across the room should do.

Its from the amp not the bass.
I'm pretty sure.

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

haha the same thing has happened to me several times but at only one venue strangely enough. I just turned the amp on standby for a little while and when I turned it back on there was no radio. Our sound guy might have done something but I dont know. For what its worth, I was using an ampeg v4bh and at the time a lakland darryl jones. It was by far one of the funniest things thats ever happened to me during a sound check.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
