    Same, nothing but loud buzzing. I have checked my cables, definitely not my guitar. only starts when the jack is in the input

    This is something that you may have already tried but is it maybe a problem with your output jack on your guitar? If either wire to the jack in your guitar is broken or in your guitar cord especially the shield or an intermittent short in your input jack on the amp you will have that sound.

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.

Why does my carvin sx-300 amp buzz


Most Amps will buzz or hum when there is a bad ground. It could be because you're plugged into an outlet with some other piece of equipment on it like a motor. if it buzzes on every outlet then there's probably a ground issue in the amp. You can try cleaning your 1/4 jacks with cleaner cause sometimes they'll get cruddy and make for a bad connection. I wouldn't recommend opening the amp and messing around with anything since you could zap yourself. If the amp buzzes withouth even having anything plugged in, then yeah, it's probably the amp with the bad ground. If it buzzes with instrument plugged in, then maybe it's a plug on your instrument since they have to deal with movement and can go faulty after a while. Good luck!

Amp just buzzes when turned on


Is it a valve amp? It could be valves are old.
If not, try plugging it into some other outlet.

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.

Hi, when using the gain control on my amp I get a buzz and an 'osilating' sound. I've tried several guitars and leads but still the same problem, any suggestions?


Hi.

If the amp is working, then most of the time the buzz is given by a bad grounding. Test the amp using different wall sockets, and possibly test it in a different home (there may be an earthing problem with the home network). If the problem goes away, then it was the wall socket or the home power network. If the buzzing is still there the problem is with the amp. Check the earth connection at power cord and psu and test the amplifier's PSU components. Check also the audio connections inside the amp (the back of the female jack input sockets). A small contact in there will result in a loud buzz.

Since you just bought this, exercise your warranty (assuming you bought this new). The amp probably will have a slight buzz with nothing connected... the question is how loud it is. If you can hear it loud at five feet, that is too much. If you bought this used, prepare to have it serviced at a shop.

Whenever I use one of the cleaner amp models i get an aggravating buzz. The buzz only occurs when I play and is not constant. (The buzz is not there when I'm not playing). At first I thought my strings...


Try moving your guitar around and oriented differently as it MAY be picking up magnetic fields from equipment in the area. Some pickups really are sentive to interference.

The effects for modeling MAY have a noise gate that requires a certain signal level before unmuting which would explain why you have to be playing to open the gate and hear noise that is really there all teh time but muted.

I have a Marshall MG100DFX. I turned my amp on a few days ago and I heard this loud sound (not the standard hum/buzz that you hear when you plug a guitar into an amp; it sounded more like a foghorn). Now,...


I would try hitting the side of the amp before turning it on. There may be a loose piece of solder or other conductive particle stuck somewhere. Bang the cabinet rather hard with your fist. If that doesn't help it might be a loose solder connection at a resistor or capacitor but a tech should check that out.

I play Gibson USA Sgs, one with 490/498 humbuckers and one with 57classics....The Amp has a loud buzz like feedback all the time on the overdrive channel.


If the amp is quiet with cables unplugged at the same settings as observing the buzz, the amp is OK.

In this case, cables and/or shielding and wiring in the guotar is suspect.

Guitar pickups are sensitive to magnetic fields and you can search out these fields by moving and orienting your guitar to find maximum buzz.

If the amp has objectional buzz with teh cables UNPLUGGED then the amp needs servicing. Filter capacitors among other things are suspect.

Joe Pass, Ground buzz, changed over everything, still have buzz


Hi there. If the amp buzzes with nothing plugged in, it's the amp. I've found that most hum comes from instruments, not the amp.
Thanks
