Problem: amplifier feedback; solution: wax potting pickups!
Sometimes, when playing with the electric bass guitar, or any other instrument, you have the need to change the setting of the sound over the amplifier, but as soon as you get to the amp a feedback comes out of its speakers. The same problem can also add some loud noises, every time one of the bass pickups gets touched when played. This electronic matter can be solved by dipping the pick circuitry with wax - naturally, this process is called “pickup wax potting”. While it is unclear if the amplifier or the bass gets damaged, the process can clearly help to have a better experience of constant playing, without the necessity of buying new gear.
