You probably damaged the nut, check the distance between the low e string and the first fret after your tuned to standard. pluck low e string only if its buzzing on first fret you may either need new nut or a repair on the neck. if you have any questions feel free to ask

SOURCE: when playing notes on the A string I get a crackeling noise

Just a thought:

If you used the speakers with another amp and they still make noise when you play certain frequencies, then it is obviously a problem with the speakers or the cabinet - it could be a mechanical resonance in some part of a speaker / cabinet, something like a loose screw or a nut, loose protection mesh on the speakers that resonates at certain frequencies, possibly a bad speaker or a speaker membrane...

Also, you might want to check the pickups on your guitar, see if the pickup core slug under the A string is much closer to the string than the other slugs so it is either picking up too much signal and distorting it or the string might be touching the slug when you play it and cause noise, also see if the string is touching something else when it vibrates...

good luck

SOURCE: new flying v, 3 strings make rattly sound near end

Are the strings hitting the frets and making a buzzing sound or is it actually coming from the bridge? Make sure the saddles on the bridge are secure. If the buzzing is caused by the fret then adjust the bridge height and/or truss rod. If the buzzing is coming from the bridge and cannot be cured it may be worth investing in an aftermarket bridge.

Sounds like it could be a noise gate setting and your low E is quite loud, therfore opening the noisegate easier. Try lowering the threshold.

Make sure you do NOT send the notes back to the MPK25, that is echo is off. If you echo them the data will be confused. This will be a setup in the Reason SW.

The control supposedly controls the mix of the echo... this is a reverb type sound. Please note that room acoustics AND if the mic's "hear" the speaker in this, it may create an echo that is NOT under control of the adjustment. Make sure the mic's cannot "hear" the speaker or a reflection off a wall.

Got a "Dwell" effect when


It sounds like you have cable in the wrong ports. Make sure your cabling goes in to out on all ports. Also make sure no cable are bent or heavy equipment on top of it. If your getting sound but sounds like muted sound its either cable in the wrong place bad cable or amp setting is to low.

The problem I have with my music man bongo bass 4 strings,,, is that the string 4 at fret 5 sounds very strange as making waves, but it sounds good with the other tones, on the other strings when I play...


Check first it is not hitting or touching the next few frets, in case they are high. Or maybe the 5th fret is low. You could raise the action and/or adjust the neck relief to test this.

If it is not a fret problem, it may be a real dead spot on your bass. If so, it would be regardless of the pickup used and could be heard acoustically if you could hear notes that low easily. Most guitars have notes on the fretboard somwhere that are a little dead. It is due to destructive interference and there is not much that can be done. To happen at the 5th fret is unusual though. Make sure the string is wound properly around the head, and that nothing is loose and actually moving/buzzing when you play the note.
Other causes can be a loose fret, loose bridge parts or a loose neck joint.

Buzzing of strings in frets up to fifth fret; seems that the bridge may be low but it's not. Also, too there is more gain in high strings than the fifth and sixth


Sounds like a warped neck, if the bridge isn't low what else would cause the strings to buzz.? With the gain problem perhaps the neck is twisted as
well as bowed. Epiphone are proving to be quite popular but they are built to a price and for beginners they are usually a good choice. Unfortunately some fakes of different guitars are sold on ebay and they often make better tennis rackets than a musical instrument. Unless you changed them the guitar usually has a cheaper Humbucker pickup. Check it's fitting anf make sure there are no loose parts or wiring sitting against the soundboard on the inside.

Try looking down the neck of the guitar and seeif you notice any warp or bend. Overtightening the strings can cause the opposite warp and the strings end up further from the frets. Also try some measuring. The distance between the any string and the fretboard starting at the nut and working down to the bottom of the fretboard. These measurements should be consistant
Also, check the nut to see if the grooves aren't too deep. This could cause buzzing by allowing less distance between the string and the first fret.

Make sure all the frets are seated correctly and not slightly out of kilter at one end.

That should give you enough to keep you busy for a while. There are plenty of reasoins why a string will buzz. I've covered a few mecanical ones but without sounding rude there are also player caused buzz. Depressing the string too far behind the fret can cause it whereas too close to the fret can kill the note. But that's not my field in this situation. Check all the above and then try your fingering. One way or the other that buzz will stop. The best way to check if it's you is to get someone else to try your guitar out and see if the buzz buzzes off :-)

good luck

I am getting a fuzzy sound from the vocalist 4 on my guitar, almost like if you strum the strings and forgot you "stored" your pick between the strings.Can you help? Thanks


This MIGHT be typical digitizing noise that can occur with a digital effects processor when the signal level is too LOW. The signal gets down in the noise because it only uses a few bits of data which means LOW resolution in the effects processing.

Make sure your guitar is producing the level required by the vocalist.

Weak battery in amped guitar is common...REMEMBER always send the signal between devices at least at half the max volume to keep a decent signal-to-noise ratio.

ALWAYS use instrument grade cables between the devices and speaker cables for speakers... NEVER use the incorrect ones for either of these functions. They should be labelled.
