I dunno what it is exactly, it bugs the hell outta me.


It sounds like the string bouncing off of a fret kinda.


Insight?

raise the action maybe if it is fret buzz otherwise I would have to see the instrument. good luck

either raise your action, put a higher gauge set of strings on or change how you play because you're playing too hard. you don't always need to dig in, you only need to brush the string with your fingertips

perhaps the strings are touching the pickups

a bassist at my school had the same, he lowered his pickups and now he doesn't

so... yea, pay a little attention and see if your strings are touching the pickups

P.S. I lol'd HARDCORE! at the KoRn comment

Most likely the strings are bouncing off the frets.

Options.

1) Raise the action
2) Play less aggressively
3)Learn to love it

Thicker strings are also an option. I'd go for playing less aggressively though.

get it set up. I wouldn't raise the action yourself; there's no real risk for you in simply raising the action, but doing so usually messes with the intonation.

also, make sure you're using a gauge string that isn't... ridiculous. lol

All WRONG! Well, missing THE important part: neck bow. Yes, the clicking is probably from the action, but the action is too low because the neck is too bowed and that makes action too high. Like Ben said, get a setup, and that'll sort out the neck bow. That's what it is, though - that, or awful technique.
