It is usually caused by interference somewhere in the room. A major source is art CRT such as a TV ot computer monitor. First try turning off any other electic devices in the room. Your could also see if there is a ground lift switch on the amp. If that dosen't do it, you can try lining the cavity of your guitar with tin foil. I t sounds weird but it does cut back on some interference. If none of those work, bring your amp to your local tech and have the preamp tubes tested. It may be that one of them is going bad.

How do I test for a poor ground wire as opposed to a bad ground wire?


One tiny wire has very little resistance. Turn up your Ohm meter to it's highest setting. Be sure to have it calibrated exactly the same for each test (zeroed out). The very good connection should read infinite but the tiny connection should show a tiny bit of resistance. It's difficult but not impossible. Get a friend to help so the resistance in your body doesn't affect the data. Use one hand and new clips.

I have kenwood amp m-a100 which has loud buzz / hum on all channels and distorts radio very badly can you help ?


The loud hum will be probably caused by the Large Electrolytic Capacitors in the Power Supply section. All of them will need to be replaced to be on the safe side. The buzz noise is caused by the fact they are letting in the 50/60hz mains. Hopefully that should clear everything up.

Peavey Ecort is working fine but has a loud buzzing that slowly gets


This is often caused by the failure of the large capacitor(s) in the power supply. The noise being the 50/60hz mains hum getting in. They will be the biggest Capacitors in the system with a value around 4700UF or greater, so you can't fail to see them.

I have a NAD C315BEE which is about 2 years old. It has been connected to the same speakers, CD player and wall socket for all that time but has suddenly started making a buzzing noise through the...


I had exactly the same problem and quickly repaired it: One of the two 10000uF 50V 85C caps was open circuit; replacing both of them solved it entirely. If you do this yourself, be very very careful to prevent shock.

Bugera 333xl every few seconds there is a loud buzzing. from


It looks as though you have ripple noise that amplifies into the output. First of all check if the mains voltage is going down to produce the low voltage hum. If not you will have to check the DC filter capacitors , couple in parallel to confirm the capacitor. IF the buzz is still coming through then you will have to isolate the preamp and wait it the fault is coming in. If not connect the preamp output to another amp to hear the same buzz to confirm the preamp to be faulty. If so you will have to trace by a voltage check when the buzz occurs to confirm if the preamp IC or the selector Ic is faulty. Some logic IC's can also produce this noise on static switching. If teh noise is appearing on both the channels, then I would still bet on the power section. So check once again on the rectifier/ regulators and capacitors. Hope this advice helps. Good day

Amp works on off on off


The buzzing is possibly the electrical mains hum at 50hz, all amps have a hum/buzzing... if you have to tap the jack lead between the guitar and amp it could simply be a connection problem, the cable may be old and internally damages, maybe loose wiring on the other side of one of the input jacks

Peavey keyboard amp--Hum takes over all operation


Hi There,
Hum can come from all sorts of places in an audio amp system......
The shielding on the input cables may be broken.
An earth somewhere can be broken....which then allows "ground loops" to form and unbalances the earthing...causing HUM....

Your note about reducing the controls to zero and the hum is still there leads me to believe that the power filter capacitors or some other filter capacitor in the DC supplies have dried out.
Capacitors can also go "open" which can cause low level sound and HUM.

The motto is "Capacitors get "old" and cause hums"....
It looks like its time for a full service....the amp has done you very well over the years and its like anything else needs a service now and then to maintian the quality of sound expected...If there is one capacitor showing you its getting "HUMMY" then there will be others in there as well needing replacement....

High heat can kill an amplifier so while its getting a check over there will be checks for other problems in there as well..Hot running resistors which can dry out adjacent Capacitors...

Cheers for now YUBEUT
