Question about Sennheiser Evolution 100 G2 (SEN-EW152G2) Professional Headset

1 Answer

I have the sennheiser ew172, when i play my guitar through it everything sounds fine. good tone, signal, etc. but when i touch the metal casing on the bodypack it makes a scratching/popping noise almost like there is a short in the cable. but you can hold the body pack with a towel so your skin is not touching it and jiggle the cable and it is as quiet as a mouse. i have ran it through the mill with changing the input and output gain, and also changing the freq. several dozen times. what i need to know is: Is it possible that it could be a bad cable. Is there a way i can check ohm on the cable? is this a problem you have ever heard of? any help you can offer would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Do you have shoes on? Do you have grounding problems in this building?
It sounds like a lack of proper grounding ... try plugging the amplifier into a different power plug and see if the problem goes away or its characteristics change.
Put some shoes on if you are in bare feet. Sneakers. Something with a rubber sole.
It's not a bad cable from your description, it's an electrical pathway problem, where a poorly grounded connection is created when you touch the bodypack.
I am assuming you are merely "touching" the bodypack, as you describe ... not tapping on it ... if you are tapping on it to get the popping noise, then there could be something loose inside the bodypack, teensy weensy stuff.

Tone knob and switch info


the switch, has three positions. Typically forward or up will be your neck (or rythm) pick ups, only and will work with one volume knob(usually top right as your looking at guitar), and one tone knob ( top left as your looking at the guitar). when the switch is in the far right or all the way down position, that will be the saddle (or lead) pick-ups. And that works with only one volume knob(bottom right as your looking at the guitar) and the corresponding tone knob. when the switch is in the middle position, botjh volume knobs work and both tone knobs work. You've gotta kinda play around with them to find whatever sound yopur looking for. and tone knobs are very subtle in their changes. good luck

Sounds like a problem with the channel itself, if the clean channel works then its not the lead, input, guitar or the drivers. You have to be careful when opening up amps as some can hold a residual charge and there can be danger of electrocution.

I would recommend getting it looked at by a pro, it doesn't sound like an expensive fix.

I was just playing my guitar, and everything was fine. Then, I sat it down for 5 minutes, and when I came back, all the sudden the "Tone" knob was loose and wiggly. Is there any way to fix this...


take the screws out of the pickguard assembly and raise it up enough to get your hand in there, pull the knob off the tone control, now hold the back of the pot (tone contorl) with one hand while you retighten the nut that holds the tone control to the pick guard, tighten the nut with a pair of pliers being careful not to scratch the pick guard, put the pickguard back in place and put the screws back in. You might want to check all the other controls to make sure they are tight or the same thing will happen to them The Peavey Rockmaster set up is a nice guitar and amp

Whenever I touch anything metal on my guitar it buzzes, including the metal part of the 3-way switch, I have a Dean Vendetta, how do I fix this?


You have a grounding problem ! You need to BOND (electrically connect) all the metal parts including the cases and shafts of the volume controls and switches. OFTEN the cavity with the controls are painted with a conductive paint such as Aquadag or NicklePrint which is then bonded to the barrel part of the jack you plug into. Note, while this helps the buzzing due to touching the metaal parts, it will not eliminate hum if you get your guitar pickups into a magnetic field from transformers, etc.

My esp ltd ex-50 have a constant buzz unless i touch the volume/tone knob(s), i re soldered the input but it still does it. any ideas?


Make sure the ground wires are soldered to the metal case of the pots. They should have a jumper running between all the metal cases.

Make sure the CONDUCTIVE paint in the cavity that is used for shielding is contacted by the ground conductor at some point.

Also keep the guitar AWAY from teh magnetic fields produced by the amp.

i would suggest getting a new guitar for the Guitar Hero. if you do such things as excessively or harshefully drop it, wrap/ overextend the cord as to tearing the inside copper away causing a faulty electrical current,etc. damaging it, or applying too much pressure to the buttons. these will result in a malfunctioning guitar themed controller. bu a new one.

Hi lumberman597

The cool thing about guitar amps is that you can mess with the knobs until you find the sound that you like. There is no particular way to use it, just try to find a tone that suits you. Start with gain controls down and tone knobs at 12o'clock. Turn up the gain(one at a time) to get distortion and more sustain to your sound. Turn the distortion up midrange down and treble up for metal sounds, more bass and midrange for bluesy sounds. just play around with it and you will see what I mean. Here is a guide from Fender on how to setup your guitar. If you are not sure, a good guitar tech can make any old axe feel and sound great with a good setup
unfortunately, Fender do not have an electronic copy of your owners manual to download, but you can buy one for $5 direct from them here It is only a 1 page manual.... so you will get more from just messing with it.

Musicians spend there whole lives tuning and tweaking knobs to get the sound they are looking for. It wont take you long to start doing the same.:)

Problem with guitar


1.make sure the guitar/mic switch is pointed to the guitar side. increase the guitar/mic level. increase the output level. 2.another thing you can do is check the "sound and audio devices" to see if everything is set to Edirol UA-4FX. If everything isnt, fix it so that it does. and remember to disable your computers stock sound card. Edirol UA-4FX is your new sound card from now on. 3. if thats not the case, try reinstalling the drivers. 4. If all of the above fail, you probably have a loose connection/ bad wiring in the guitar/mic 1/4" input. you can choose to open up the device and solder that yourself and possibly lose your warranty or have the entire unit replaced. Hope I helped! good luck!
