I just found this website, so sorry for the delay. sometimes the heads (especially plastic or composite) come partially unrolled from the rim to which they are attached. since by tuning it, you are pulling the head tighter only because it's firmly attached to the rim, if the rim is loose at even a little spot, that place will sound funny. you might get a crackle or buzz where the fit just isn't right. plus, in this case, if you keep tightening the rest of the head, this portion will just warp or fold since it's not tight enough to lay flat and stretch, which will just increase your noise.
Now, if the head's leather, the buzz might be a fly trapped inside. no really, check for splinters or separations on the rim of the body which the head is stretched over. if there is a split in the actual drum body, you'll hear it more when the head next to it is vibrating.

What causes buzzing in speakers?


There are many causes of buzz, so it should be checked step by step :
- Bad connection on the input connector, or cord.
- Amplifier, basically have the block diagram like this:

Generally occurs in the PSU and / or power amplifiers.
Fix it to the experts,because it requires a good knowledge of electronics.
Blown speaker cone, does not cause a buzz.
Short circuit along the wires supplying the audio, it will not cause any sound in the speakers, including the sound of music.
Try also, disconnect the input connector, whether the buzz is still audible. If after the input connector is removed, the buzz disappears, the possibility of buzz came from another device before the amplifier.

My Marshall MG50 DFX Has an awful buzzing sound that comes out of it after startup.


I would check C22 and C24 the main smoothing capacitors. They can fall out at worst or just have bad solder at best.

I have a RH50 T amplifier, it had a bit of a bumpy car ride to band practise the other day and now when i play through it, it will make a permanent buzzing noise on the clean channel that gets 70% worse on...


You may have damaged the variable resistors (the volume controls), you can purchase replacements from a local Electronics store (if UK based try Tandy). Otherwise have you checked the speaker itself for damage? You may have split the speaker which will need to be replaced.

I have a Ibanez TBX150H head, when I turn it on all I get is a buzzing noise coming through the speakers. Nothing drastic happened to it, just one day it wouldn't play.


Most common cause would be failed filter capacitor(s). Broken grounds neaar the input connector are another common problem. This will take electronic troubleshooting skills.

If I strum harder on my guitar a buzzing noise comes out of the amp. Also every sound I try on the amp sounds very twangy and painful to the ears. I use an overdrive pedal with it, but every setting is...


If you don't want distortion, get rid of the overdrive pedal... Twangy USUALLY comes from the GUITAR and NOT the amp... test it on a different amp to decide... Buzzing CAN be caused by "fret buzz" which is due to IMPROPER guitar setup such as neck bend and string height.
Start using ONLY clean channel on the amp and NO reverb. If you verify that the guitar sounds bad on a different amp, take it in to have it setup properly.

When i hit some E notes from silence and i strike...


Who knows what kind of instrument you are talking about??? Could be a organ, synth or even a guitar...

For organs, etc, there may be something loose and resonating... go searching by putting pressure on things that might be vibrating...

If it is a guitar it is probably fret buzz... read up by searching google for fret buzz... it is caused by inadequatte clearance of the strings to the frets or playing the strings wrong (plucking vertically)..

Floyd rose is causing a fret buzz


Raise the saddles on the FR to help take away the fret buzz. Check the neck for curve. If the neck has a VERY slight bow on the fretboard side the strings will be able to vibrate better without buzz. Also might want to step up to a heavier gauge string set if you play in lower tunings.

Nothing but loud buzzing coming over the amp when trying to play. Any suggestions?


If the buzz disappears when you unplug the cable from the amp. check your cable.
If the buzz disappears when you unplug the cable from the instrument, there's something thay may have come loose inside the instrument.
If you unplug the cable from the amp., and the buzz persists, you'll have to have a competent tech. check your amp.
