I tried a ton of things and cant find the solution.
its not the guitar, its not the cables and its not the amp. another guitarist came over and had the same problem.
we unplugged the air conditioner, we clicked of the dimmer switch in the basement. nothing worked.
its definitely some type of interference from my drummers house. we just can't figure out the source.
we play next to the door near the back deck. the power lines outside of his deck are a mess.
the area is all row homes with wires running every were. it could be interference from any of the other houses.
this is the noise I'm getting, but on my amp its louder and more obnoxious. mine even has this awesome feedback that creeps in[sarcasm]

when I say loud. I'm mean real loud. louder then the guitar and amp playing. its mixing with my tone and it is terrible.
now that I found a link, you can actually hear what I'm talking about. sorry for bugging you all with this problem, but its driving me nuts.
our only other solution is to rent a monthly rehearsal spot at a 24 hour studio for 400$ a month. we can lock our gear up and play all night at the studio, but we only have time to get together on once a week maybe twice.
400$ is a pretty hefty price for 4 to 6 practices a month. thanx guy's
I had some weird directional hum coming from my rig, and it seems to have stopped once i plugged everything into a power conditioner. I don't have a super-expensive one, either. Maybe try that before you go renting a rehearsal space (which could have even worse power).
