This seems to be a battery problem unless you use an AC adapter. If it does it on AC, I would check my guitar cord and power supply. The wrong power supply could do that and a bad guitar cord can as well. If you use a speaker cable as an instrument cable, it could do the same.

    I'm not sure at this but, just checking the basics. I get noise sometimes in my rack and it is usually just a connection. I'll look into it more. I use a zoom GFX1 sometimes for practice and it seems that zoom stuff sometimes acts funny but, I still feel somehow a connection somewhere is the problem. Have you tried a nother guitar? I would definitely check that up front.

    the pedal does the noise without a connected guitar, my cables works perfect with any pedal, amplifier or instrument. i'm 33 years old and i have 15 years playing electric guitar with pedals... i use the G2 just for fun, a couple weeks ago i tried to use it and this happened, just a lot of noise... sorry about my english, i'm from central america...

    Well, that explains what I need to know. The pedal has something burned out inside, probably filter capacitors. There is not much help I can give other than to open the pedal and look for burned out parts. You may can replace them IF you can find values for them. It would probably be simpler just to replace the unit. I don't think we could find any schematics for that unit to do repairs.

My Fender Hot Rod deluxe makes a popping noise when switching back to the clean channel.


This is because your clean channel only runs through the pre-amp section, requiring an increased volume level to match that of the volume of the drive section which is overdriven by the pre-amp circuit. my suggestion is to use lower volume level on the clean channel of the amp. To get any volume boost you may need to match the two channels you could use a signal/volume booster or overdrive pedal between your guitar and amp input, switching it off and back on when you switch back and forth between channels.

"Noise" is not a very good deescription... is it hum? is it static like? is it a buzz? Hum pickup by the pickups of guitars are common and some pickups are worse. If it is hum move the guitar away from magnetic sources like amps, motors, flourescent lights, dimmers... etc. Sme guitars have grounding problems and touching them varies hum. Also, do NOT let the guitar "hear" the amp as it can feedback at frequencies above your hearing even. Do some "sniffing" by moving the guitar and the orientation around the area seeing if you can find hot spots of noise to avoid.

The pot is generating noise. Some noise is unavoidable from pots. Using excess gain in the amp that that follows it will worsen the problem. If ypu can get to the pot and it has a way to squirt some CRC226 in it would help. You would have to use the spout on the can to squirt into the slot where the leads go into the pot. You can get CRC226 at Home Depot in the electrical dept.

Fender hot rod deville 212 111. On the 2nd and 3rd distortion chanels the noise coming out of the speaker is very loud. Is this normal? Hard to play through the noise.


Hi. If the volume and drive levels are considerably low but you still hear a noise, you may want to consider trying a different guitar cable. The noise may be coming from a ground loop which is being amplified and overdriven by the amp itseld. I hope this helps. :-)

I have a Zoom G2, It has excessive noise. It has the correct power supply and I tried powering it with batteries, but it still produces the loud distorted noise. It worked fine the last time I used it. ...


Check if it might be an intermittent input or output jack by wiggling these. Jackks are notorious for problems. Often the soldering of the jack to the circuit board seperates causing noise.

How to set up with amp and distortion pedal


With everything switched off. I will surmise that you are using the onboard battery with the foot pedal and not a power supply.
1. Plug lead from guitar/instrument into INPUT side of pedal
2. Plug lead from OUTPUT side of pedal into amplifier INPUT.
3. Turn amplifier volume to about 10 o'clock - to stop blowing your ears out.
4. Turn volume up on guitar to acceptable level.
5. press foot switch on pedal and adjust pedal controls to suit your type of distortion.
6. Play like Hendrix.
Good Luck
ps Just as an after thought rechargeable 9volt batteries are the way to go. I've been using them for years as I always get caught up in the power cable.
If you're going to add another pedal like a Phaser, Compressor, Flanger or what just use small connect leads between each pedal but always, always put the compressor pedal last in the line.

Static Noise from guitar amp.


I take it you have made sure that both the cable to the distortion box from the guitar and the cable to the amp are both good. From the description you give, it sounds like there is no signal getting to the pedal. If the cable is good, then the next likely suspect would be the input jack on the fuzz box. Try wiggling it a little with the guitar cable in place to see if it is loose. Some input jacks are unbelievably cheap and flimsy. A crackling sound (static like) is almost always a bad connection. If it was the output jack, I would think that the guitar signal would come through a least a little bit, but you might want to try wiggling that one, too, if the input jack isn't the culprit.

Another possibility to check is the battery, but this doesn't seem as likely. Some effects units devour batteries, especially units that use 9V batteries. I have a multi effect pedal that kills a 9V in about an hour.
