Members steve_man Posted May 19, 2010 Members Share Posted May 19, 2010 Okay, I've been having this issue for the past couple of months. Never dealt with it before, but it is affecting both of my amps, or all my guitars...and I can't figure it out. I have two amps, a Marshall Haze Combo, and a brand new AC15C1. Both are killer amps for sure, but I'm getting (especially with my Tele) a lot of noise. Sure, there is single-coil hum...I'm used to that. However, when I turn up to stage volumes and am not playing, it's so loud that it is very distracting for everyone on stage...and probably in the audience. My Tele has been my main axe for over 2 years now, and this problem really started about 2 months ago. I really noticed it when I got my new Vox amp. Problem is, it's happening with both my amps, and with all 3 of my guitars (and 2 of them have humbuckers). I thought it might be a grounding issue, but I don't see any loose connections, or grounds that have come loose. I tried a Monster power conditioner, and that did not seem to help, either. I was thinking of swapping to noiseless pups on my Tele, but the thought occurred to me that it might be the tubes in my amps. I plugged my Les Paul into a new Marshall Class 5 yesterday, and it was dead silent. So, that has me wondering. I bought the Haze used, and it was shipped cross-country. Bought the Vox new from Sweetwater, but it was shipped, as well. Could it be as simple as bad tubes? Thanks guys... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
