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.

I pressume that martin thinline preamp pick up has two pick ups ?


your pressumption would be correct. The Thinline 332 runs under the bridge saddle, and the Piezo is attached ti the inside of the guitar body, tilt your guitar and have a look inside, you may be able to see it.

Ephiphone guitar pickup wiring


Or a bad solder connection on the ground wire on the jack, or shell/sheild on the guitar.

Here is the list you seek.

I have a Thinline pickup in my 1924 0-28, because unfortunately nothing else is slim enough to do the job. I took it out of the guitar years ago after it failed onstage, and now I've decided to give it...


Probably the ground wire is broken on this either at the jack or very near the end of th pickup stick. This acts like a condenser microphone and is fairly high impedance so any break in the ground will pickup hum. Using a high impedance guitar cable is necessary.

I have a Schecter C1+, older model. When played through a clean channel on my amp, Peavey 6505+, there is a constant buzz. Tried different guitars with the same amp/cab, an the buzz is gone. Culprit is...


This may be strictly magnetic pickup from nearby sources of transformers, ballasts or other motors that generate these magnetic fields. Humbucker pickups have hum cancelling windings that PARTIALLY remove the hum. Wires from pickups to other components should be twisted to help cancel the problem.

I get a buzzing from the mic on my Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend that stops when I revert to the pickup only. The buzzing becomes less when I touch the circuit board of the preamp underneath...any ideas?


This is a grounding and shielding problem. It is unknown what type of guitar you have but if there are other electronics, they need to be grounded to this device ground. Any source of magnetic fileds can worsen problems. Transformers in amps, etc. Solid body guitars have special shielding paint and you may be able to improve shielding by painting... just don't get it on circuit boards as it will short out the circuitry.

My bass buzzes when im trying to record. I plug it straight into the back of my 8 track and it buzzes. When I touch the metal conection were the jack goes or touch the jack the buzzing stops. This is also...


The cause is a lack of proper earth grounding in the 8 track so your jack-lead is acting like a radio aerial. The solution is simple - buy a Direct Injection (DI) box to place between the guitar and recorder.

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.

Amplifier is buzzing when i plug in my les paul but ok with other


Several things to try:
- Probably already have, but another guitar cord.
- Ground switch on the amp?
- I had an older guitar that buzzed due to the pickups. While touching the strings, all was well - I was acting as the ground then. The ground wire broke, so it buzzed no matter what. The ground wire ran to the metal bridge.
- Play louder than the buzz! :)
