Fender 212r when i turn on my d1 boss distortion pedal and play threw the clean channel the distorion has a static sound with it and when ever on turn the treble up on the amp it brings out this sound, i got my d1 pedal checked out and its working fine, i already tried playing the d1 distortion on the distortion channel and i dont hear the sound im referring to, so i believe it has something to do with the clean channel

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: The Distortion Pedal has no effect on the sound.

i got d same problm. i fixed it myself.. check all the op amp ic's if they're all gud. if youre not sure, replace all 4 rc4558 ic's. in my case, i still felt a very small output signal from my pedal (equalizers, vol n gain ctrls r gud since they vary when i change the setting) so i suspected that one or 2 of my ic's were damaged. i only replace d last two op amps which my signal passes thru. i also had this problm with my marshall drive master. same diagnosis and solution. check your schematics

SOURCE: my guitar won,t play threw the amp lots oof static

The things to check arre FIRST the cable. These often have breaks or bad connectors. Replace with known good one and try it.

Next are the jacks on the guitar and the amp. These go bad and wiggling the KNOWN good cable at each end will flag which or both being bad.

Next are the switches and potentiometers in the guitar. Use some CRC226 sprayed into the pot and switch contacts... use sparingly...

The key is to find which thing or things are bad.

SOURCE: Fender Concert II preamp is faint and distorted on 2 channel

It sounds like a job for a technician. There are high voltages in the chasis and the potential for a serious shock to the unwary. 

That said, I can suggest several possibilities.

First, make sure the controls aren't causing the problem. Contacts can build up dirt and oxides and block the signal. Try twiddling the controls and see if the problem comes and goes, or if you hear scratchy noises. If symptoms are found, buy a contact cleaner spray, take out the chasis after unplugging and letting it set for an hour, being very careful not to touch any exposed conductors inside. You'll see some holes in the control bodies; squirt cleaner for 2-5 seconds and work the controls.
Also see if the problem happens without the footswitch, and try the channel switches several times - same problem, dirt and oxidation.

Other possibilities - cathode bypass capacitors drying up, and it looks like the amp uses some opto-couplers at various stages.

SOURCE: My BOSS Distortion(DS-1) pedal buzzes whenever the

This sounds like a broken ground wire or trace within the unit if an IDENTICAL pedal does not act the same AT THE SAME SETTINGS.

Sometimes a circuit trace gets broken on the board inside pedals and can cause this.

Since an identical pedal doesn't have the problem, service is required.

If you know electronics you can open the pedal and look for obvious problems.

HINT: Use a bright LED penlight to "candle" the circuit board to look for cracks.

Look for broken solder joints... this can take an experienced eye to spot.

A distortion pedal NORMALLY is very simple circuitry.

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.

I have a Fender Frontman 212r amp. The problem seems to be when I put the volume upto past 4/10 [40%] The amp gives out an awful crackling sound and power light etc flickers on and off. I have had the map...


When i turn on my 212R it turns on in drive channel. if footswith is plugged in, then it turns on in the clean channel, but after switching in drive it is impossible to switch it back in clean channel. What could be wrong? Swith position doesnt change anything and it seems like switch is OK.

I get no sound at all when I plug in to the input and its not my lead or guitar, how can I fix the amp?


This is probably not a DIY repair. You best take it to a repair shop. Likely the power amp has failed or other common problems are broken connectors/jacks, broken volume pots, and finally circuit board cracks.

Everytime I play on my Fender Frontman 212R the amp switches betweeen the overdrive and clean channels. I can't even switch between the channels on my own. It does it itself. I need help fixing this...


You don't say if you are using a footswitch or not... If you are, the switch, cables and connectors are suspect.

If you are NOT using the controller, the switch contacts on the footswitch jack in the 212 are suspect as being intermittent contacts.

If the contact is not making, the OD switch on the unit will NOT work either.

These jacks, and their contacts are JUNK and often cause problems.

Open the unit and increse the tension of the contact springs.

My hot rod deluxe has internal distortion problems.


There are many components in the system. Electrolytic capacitors are most suspect. C49, C50, C45, C51

There are many others but these are top suspects. You MAY be able to detect a change by cooling these components with circuit cooler spray.

ALSO check the +/- 16 volt power sources in the unit.

Increase in delay effect during a lead setting.


This may be he characteristic of mixing of the delayed when high distortion is present...

I would go to music store and compare... I tend to think this is the nature of the beast.

If you consider what the waveforms look like with distortion and then add them delayed... they limit out and when added there is a significant difference when adding or mixing waves that are delayed when squared compared to nice sine waves.

When i turn on my pedal i can get the clean tone but when i switch the distortion i cannot get the distorted sound...what should i do?


Make sure the pedal has the correct power supply voltage, current AND polarity.

Also adjust the setting knobs as needed.

Make sure the in's and out's are corectely connected... it will work clean if they are backward, but no distortion.

The BOSS FDR-1 produces a popping sound when played


This is a common problem with this pedal experienced by allot of people. My best advice would be to sell it and put the money toward a real Fender tube amp and some good pickups. If you're trying to go cheap check out some Line 6 modeling stuff.
