  • My TS9 is picking up AM radio

    FYI my rig is guitar+TS9+amp. Anyway, when I turn the guitar's volume pot all the way off, the guitar picks up radio. It's not the cable/guitar/amp cus When I disconnect both cables from the guitar/pedal and plug each individual cable into the guitar and amp, it's totally silent. It's just when I add the tubescreamer between the cables and I put the volume on the guitar all the way down, it picks up radio. Anyway, I have a couple questions.
    1. Is it dangerous ie: will it shock me
    2. Is there a way to fix it.

        1. Definitely no.

        2. My fuzz occassionally does the same thing at some settings.

          It's no big deal. Don't worry about it, it's a common noise problem.

            Actually No, some pedals will do this and it depends on where youre at and like you said at lower volumes.

            I had a Wolfcomputer that would do this and In my experience

            It wont shock you if you fiddle with it, just keep the volume like some say

            Loud enough to drown out the noise.

            I could be wrong, but this is from my personal experience

              If you can solder you can try placing a low pass filter at the front of the pedal. Consists of a capacitor and a resistor, probably in the range of 100pf and 34k ohms. Result is 20 db attenuation in the AM band.

                well, you just have to find a way to tune the reception, and then you don't even need a guitar.

                  lol. Well If it isn't dangerous, then I'll probably just leave it alone, though I don't speak spainish, and it seems that's all it'll pick up.

                      I have a similar problem with some network stuff I am running over the power grid (Netgear Powerline) my guess is you have the volume of your pedal turned way high.
