Re: weird sounds...

well first you need to eliminate your culprits, what type of guitar are you using? what kind of pickups? Does it work with different guitars. what cables are you using?

Re: weird sounds...

It sounds like string pull. Try lowering your pickups and see if that helps

I've also had guitars that you could hear where the strings buzzed on. If it only happens on some frets, that is why.

Re: weird sounds...

Are you playing while wearing a cell phone on your belt or in your pocket? Try switching the power off on your phone and get back to us with the results. The interference that a phone emits can sound like a low pitched buzz or hum, or a constant ticking sound. Mine sometimes sounds like an electric shaver is being played through my amp.

Re: weird sounds...

Actually electrical interference occurs too. The louder the tube is, the more it will pick up....

The worst electrical interference I have had is a fan in my bedroom makes my monitor shake if it does not run at 60hz (in cycle with AC power!).

Re: weird sounds...

Perhaps you have a bad preamp tube, which is not really used on the clean channel?
