Loud popping sound coming from Bass guitar

Whenever my Marcus Miller bass is moved around the signal gets all messed up and makes a loud pop sound. I think it could be the battery for the active pickups. My amp is fine, so is my monster cable, so it can pretty much only be the bass. How can I fix this?

If the battery is in the same cavity as the pots and toggles, the battery if not insulated could be grounding out on one of the hot leads or lugs on the pot. i usually cut out a thin piece of foam to cover the electronics from the battery and wrap the batter in electrical tape. that pop is a grounding type noise, there maybe a bad solder joint as well. maybe the tone capacitor is not soldered in well.

Amp pops randomly and gets worse with my remote bass knob hooked up any ideas ?


When you say that the amp "pops" are you referring to the sound that is coming out of the speakers?
This is most likely the speakers "bottoming out", i.e. moving as much as they can, and then slapping against the back of the speaker frame. Adding the remote bass knob (presumably increasing the signal to the amplifier) would make the problem a bit worse, which explains why the popping increases after you add the bass knob.

You can try decreasing the gain on your amplifier and running the system at a moderate volume. If there's no popping occurring, you can be reasonably sure that the subs/speakers are just being over-driven.

This bass squels if you have a bass head and cabinet. i had a 100W amp and it played fine then upgraded to a head/cab. tryed playing it with loud volume, squels. anyway to fix this?


Turn down the treble gain and mid gain... you don't need it for a bass. Prevent the guitar from "hearing" the output of the amp directly. The guitar strings make a good microphone.

I have a Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass thats makes this really really loud buzzing earthy sound. It seems to happen spontaneously, in fits and starts, but particularly if the cable input on the bass is...


This sounds like either a bad guitar cable or a bad jack in the guitar. Possibly your friend is not as qualified to find these intermittent problems as needed? These jacks are really junky and often have riveting of the barrel come undone... especially if the retaining nut is overtightened. The LONG barrel like jacks are notorious for failing. You have all the information you need to solve this problem. First try a different guitar cable... (often they are broken or intermittent at the end where they flex). If that doesn't fix it, replace the jack in the guitar. Also verify that the conductive coating paint within the guitar is grounded. Sometimes the contact to it is destroyed when the volume control shafts or jacks become loose and they depend upon the shaft barrel to ground the paint.

Popping noise while computer is powering down. Any suggestions?


Hi,
Lower your main sound volume. Double click the speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner of your windows.(was it maxed out?)

go into control panel /sounds and select a lower bass setting in your sound settings. You usually have a choice of rock & roll ( lots of bass) opera setting, classical etc.. choose one with less bass.

Make sure your LINE IN is DISABLED. It may be causing this static feedback.

You may have blown your speakers by playing sound way too loud. You may need to buy new speakers.

Thank you and Good luck. *s*

Woofer popping


Sounds like a loose connection or a blown speaker. I would try just playing around with the wires to see if you can make it pop, if so, the wire you were messing with is the most likely culprit. Also, verify the sub cone has no damage or cracks. I am betting it i a bad connection or a loose wire.

- bass cuttoff does not allow bass frequencies to pass. This is useful to block unnecessary sounds from being recorded, since there is not much intelligible human voice content in the bass range. Cutting off the bass will minimize the sound of thuds, bumps, breath pops, etc.

- -10dB lowers the signal output of the mic by 10 decibels. This is useful when recording very loud instruments that would otherwise clip some gain stages
