    amp buzzing

    Im the guy who had the loud amp buzzing problem. I just got a noise suppressor and it helps with feedback, but the loud buzzing is still there. the buzz is as loud, if not louder then my actual playing volume.

    you can hear the buzz while I'm playing. I have to throw my head on standby as I'm hitting the finishing note of a song. I'm getting it down pretty good, but this can't be good for my tube head.

    will this help Furman Merit M-8LX Power Conditioner with Lights and more Power Conditioners at

    I can't spend over 150$ on power conditioner. I don't have the money.
    thanx for the help guy's

    does it only buzz at your place? have you tested more than one outlet in your home? have you unplugged your guitar and can you still hear the buzzing when you do? is your amp grounded correctly?

    I would recommend not getting the ML series. They are pretty much glorified power strips/ surge protectors. If you want a Furman power conditioner, get the PL series because it has AC line filtering, which is what helps reduce noise and supply your amp with consistent power.

    Does the amp buzz without your guitar plugged in? Could be your guitar.

    If your noise supressor is an NS-2, you can use it before the amp as well as in the FX loop at the same time. Also, an NS-2 has mute functionality.

    it only happens at my practice spot. the bass player don't have the buzz. only me.
    it started with my old solid state amp, then I got a new amp and it did the same thing.

    its either bad wiring in the house or its my guitar. I have active emg's.

    I'm starting to think they are not grounded correctly. I didnt try turning the amp on without the guitar plugged in.

    my buddy installed my pickups a while back. it was a mess when I opened the guitar up. I tried to clean it up, but I'm no expert on installing pickups. I had to completely disconnected the neck pickup, because it started to get confusing telling what wires went were. I always played on the bridge pickup anyway. I never really used the neck pickup.

    could the neck pickup sitting in limbo be the problem?
    could it be the pickups are not grounded correctly?
    if its bad wiring in the house will this be the answer?

    does any one know of a link on how to install the zack wylde emg's?
    I am changing these pickups soon, but I just don't have the money right now.

    thanks for all the replies guy's. you been a great help.

    Try it with a different guitar to rule out that possibility.
