Am getting a bad buzzing noise from my laney lc15


Bad connection? Loose fittings? I used to get a crackle from my amp when I turned the volume or balance knobs. A quick spray of WD 40 down the shaft after removing the knobs fixed it.

Buzz coming from elec. guitar pickups only when using Aviom and headphones


It is a definite pickup grounding issue causing hum/"buzz" which diminishes when touching strings. Check the impedance of cable jack inputs and cable which should be 1/4"mono input/output jacks) . A personal preference but effective is to NOT run guitar direct into mixer but through an external amp w/ a headphone out jack . Noise gating/preamp filter also will help eliminate the "buzz"/noise from pickups. It is unfortunately the nature of the "electro-magnetic" beast when it comes to electric guitar pickups .Hope this helps.

My new Bugera 333 212 combo has a weird "ringing" noise on the crunch channel. The noise can be heard on other channels too, but it is loudest on crunch. The noise is clearly mechanical, (it...


Microphonic tubes can be detected by tapping them lightly with a pencil. I cannot find if this uses a spring reverb, but if it does, vibrating the cabinet will get a clanky type sound from the reverb tank. This MAY use a digital reverb however which is immune to that. Next thing is to make sure your guitar can't "hear" the output sound of the amp because the strings can pick up the sound and resonate feeding back into the amp. You can detect if this is happening by quickly dampening the strings and see if ringing gooes away. You probably need 6 to 10 feet of clearance between the guitar and the amp OR put your body between the amp and the guitar. ALWAYS set sound level at safe levels. Get a sound meter and go no higher than 90 Db. I know a lot of near deaf musicians whose careers are near over because of hearing loss using too high level.

It sounds like somehow the pre-gain is very high while the volume or post-gain is very low. Try turning the volume high on the effects unit and the gain low, and don't have the amp volume too low either.

Hey my ax260 strings rattle alot mainly the bass strings? and every time i touch the coil tap knob a ugly sound comes from the amp its not even a year old yet and never been knocked over or droped could...


Strings "rattling" is usually guitar setup. This has to do with string height and POSSIBLY the neck truss rod. For the latter, have a guitar shop set it up for you. Hum from touching a knob is likely a broken ground wire in the cavity of the guitar. Also view videos on YouTube search "Guitar setup"

I get a lot of scratchy electric interferance noise when I play my guitar, but it hasn't always been this way...just started


Unless something has suddenly happened to your guitar (like being dropped) start by eliminating as many external factors as possible.
  1. If you are using an effects pedal plug straight into your amp to see if that cures it.
  2. Turn off any other electrical equipment in the vicinity that could be causing interference.
  3. Try changing your guitar lead - it may be just poor screening or cracked insulation in the cable.
  4. Try switching back and forth between the different pick-ups and also fully rotate all the volume and tone control knobs quickly several times - the contacts may have got dirty over time.
  5. Pull the jack plug in and out several times to make sure it isn't dirty contacts in there too - if it is give it a little squirt of 'switch cleaner' spray - available from most electronics suppliers or online via Amazon E-Bay etc.
  6. Check the screw bezel (threaded ring-nut) that holds the jack socket in the body of the guitar. Sometimes these work loose over time and then the jack plug doesn't quite go in far enough resulting in poor electrical contacts.
  7. If your guitar has active circuitry pick-ups also replace the battery - use high quality batteries (Duracell Ultra or similar) never re-chargeables as they don't hold high enough voltages.
  8. Try a different guitar to see if the problem is in the amp. Stand or sit in a different position, move about, turn round 90 degrees to see if it is just interference between the guitars pick-ups and the power supply in your amp.
  9. If none of the above works then it is likely to be a problem with the guitar's electrics - don't tamper if it is still in warranty. Carefully remove the back plate to see if any wires have come loose - it might be a dry solder joint on the jack socket or one of the control knobs so may not be immediately obvious. If the screen wire (sleeve of the jack plug) has come off it may not stop the guitar working but it may cause the noise problem.
  10. Beyond that I can only suggest taking it to a qualified guitar technician who can fully check the electrics with a test meter.

I have a dean vendetta xm and it wont make sound through an amp they wiring is correct (checked through diagram provided by dean)


If the wiring is correct on the guitar, try plugging it in to a different amp. If you still don't get any sound, the problem may be a faulty volume or tone potentiometer (or pot. The knob, for simpler words). These are fairly easy to replace if you know how to solder. If not, then watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLfXXRfRIzY

You can get the pots from Musician's Friend, Guitar Center, or any music store that carries guitar parts.

If that doesn't fix it, then the problem is in your pickups. You can get "aftermarket" pickups through the above mentioned dealers, and you're not restricted to the original pickups.

What you replace them with will affect your tone, so do some research before settling on a set of pickups. Active pickups will give you more gain (great for nu-metal and hi-gain applications) and have lower output noise, but they require batteries. Passive pickups have no need for batteries, but tend to produce slightly more noise and hum.

Hopefully, it's the pots. That will be the cheaper fix, since they run about $2-$4USD each. Pickups can range from $100-$500USD a set.

Hope that helps!

How do i repair my B.C. Rich guitar??


Guitar manufacturers use generally one of two different knob types: (1) knob has a small set screw of some type holding it on or (2) press fit onto the shaft of the tuneing pot (volume knob in your case).
Now, the problem is if it is NOT a set screw type, it is press fit. You see press fit used most of the time on lower-end instruments (and a few high end). The BEST way to get a stuck volume know off is to get a shoe string, loop part of it under the knob, brace the guitar firmly and PULL SLOWLY WITH FORCE. Realize that it is possible to damage the guitar if you **** on the string too hard.
I have never seen where a stuck know did not come off (or hear of someone breaking their guitar doing it).
I have also resorted to using a small screwdriver: work it way under the know and gently twist it to loosen it so it can be pulled off with a string or your hands.
Be carefull not to scratch your guitar!
Good luck,
-mike
