So today i turned on my amp and it was louder than normal, and i have no idea why. Normally i wouldnt mind if i had a louder amp, but when i play high notes on the E and A strings (like past 12th fret) the sound begins distorting slightly. Help???

What about the tone knob on the bass?
Oh and the EQ on the amp could be altered?

Is it possible your bass' volume knob/pickup fader got messed up somehow? Did you drop it or anything?

i dont think so, i accidentally bumped the back of the bass on amp before i turned it on, but it wasnt anywhere near hard enough to mess up a knob

My amp did that for a bit when I first plugged my active bass into it; I unplugged the amp from the mains and left it. I haven't actually plugged it back in yet... jesus that was months ago, I've been exclusively using my amPlug for 4 months! I'll check and see if it still does it... nope. So yeah.. solution might be to leave it unplugged for 4 months lol!
