hello i have a harley-benton hbb500tbk electric bass. it's a cheap one, but it's active and ok for me. the problem is that the one pickup makes a humming noise (like some ground problem), which makes it kinda unusable. i can use the other one, which doesn't make any noise (at least no unwanted) but i like the sound of the other one better (except for the humming of course). does anybody know what i can do to get rid of the noise? the other thing is, that the output of both pickups is really high. way higher than any other bass i've heard. i have to pull the gain way down, when i plug it into a bass amp so it won't clip. that's not a big problem. it's just annoying when i have to use someone else's amp ("don't touch my dials!!!") maybe somebody's had the same problem and found a way to fix it.
