Hello folks, I'm hoping you can help me out. I've noticed that when I play sustained chords, as they decay they eventually produce a tremolo sound. I've got several guitars and two amps, and every combination of guitar/amp does this.
I wouldn't call it unpleasant, per se. It just seems unusual and I am not sure if that's supposed to happen.
I've read a ton of info on guitar warbling but this doesn't seem to be the same case as many of the articles and forum's I've read. It's only chords - not individual strings. It's on Fenders, Shecters and Gretsch guitars, humbuckers and single-coil alike - so it's not likely to be the common strat effect. I also don't usually play in a room with a ceiling fan.
So I'm turning to you guys to see if this should be a concern for me. Is it a normal effect for a long, sustained chord? Is it because my entire house is full of electronic devices? Is it because I'm using bass and keyboard amps?
I appreciate most input...but can assure you that even recently set-up guitars with proper intonation and other guitars where the magnets are the proper distance from the strings are all experiencing the same phenomenon.
Thanks for your input.
