As the bass is sheldied as far as I know I will try and check if everything in the bass is correctly connected !?

Maybe if I can get it quiet in my house then it'll be bullet proof next time I get a gig at the local power station 🤘

So...it seems clear that your bridge/string grounding is fine. To reduce noise when you're not touching earthed metal - check the shielding. Not simply ground continuity - is the shielding complete and how it is implemented.

And yes - SCR dimmers are a major source of noise so if you can avoid them then all the better.

And don't ignore noise sources that may be in an adjoining room or building. Or, from experience, even further away.

Note on this: Coated strings can be an issue with this.
