    I recently purchased a rack set up to add to my Hartke vx3500 4x10 combo. My rack set up (in order top to bottom) is: Furman power conditioner, AKG WMSPRO with guitar bug, Behringer BTU2000 rack tuner to the passive amp input. I've noticed that I'm getting a somewhat high pitch almost radio interference type noise when I strike a note. I believe it's something with the tuner because Ive been using the akg for a while with no issues. Any ideas?

    I've had issues with tuners making noise. See if the tuner is a bypass when switched "off" and only use it when you tune up.

    My Korg is in the signal path, but I only switch it on when I'm tuning. It's nice not to have the tuner display going berserk the entire show as well.

      If the high pitched noise is still there,  you might want to add some rfi/emi chokes on the cables. These do work.

      Thanks for the advice, much appreciated! Luckily it is a true bypass so solderjunkie your solution will work for me for now.

    you don't have your cell phone in your pocket while you are playing do you?  I have to put mine away when I strap my bass on.  My wireless picks up some kind of interference.
