Can you at least change the distortion sound (timbre, contour, whatever they call it on that amp) and drive? If this has a footswitch jack, you might luck out and find it's just dirty or stuck (normaled jack, could be NO or NC).

Marsahll amp jvm205c has static/hum in overdrive


Are you using a single coil pickup guitar (Strat or Tele)? If yes, then this is normal depending on how much gain is dialled in.

Marshall mg100hdfx head. I get no sound whatsoever plugged into the guitar input but the controls seem to work as I can hear changes in the light ambient static. I will get sound however if I plug directly...


You MAY have a broken input jack. If you can hear changes from the overdrive gain control, that control is just one stage away from the input jack. Also there is a capacitor C60 that is for RF bypassing and if that shorts that will kill the audio. Yes, inout jacks get destroyed by tripping over guitar cables... that is why you run the cord through the amp handle before plugging it in. Of course verify your guitar and cable is good using another amp.

Hot rod deluxe squeals terribly with either overdrive box or distortion box. seem fine with tremolo or chorus box.


I have had this problem at least two times and the fault was a bad hi voltage filter capacitor. With the back of the amplifier removed, it's the grey cap near the top right side. Warning: very dangerous voltage there!!

My s5470 does not sustain well at all.also,the bridge pickup sounds ok but lacks ''attack'' in upper register.great guitar otherwise.i use a peavy 5150 60watt amp.


I personally use Seymour Duncan Humbucker pickups, and have never been disappointed. You might want to take your guitar up to a music shop and try it on different amps to see if your amp is your problem, or if it is your guitar's pickups or wiring. You could also try adjusting the height of the pickups until the sound you are looking for is achieved. I have also had guitar cables make a big difference in the sound. Make sure you have a good set of cables, and you may want to adjust the EQ settings of your amp to make up what the guitar lacks.

Hello, well i just bought this week an MB4410 marshall and it sounds a lil bit distored even at low volumes and on the clean modern channel, i just wanted to know if thats how the amp should sound like or...


First make sure your guitar can't "hear" the amp as the sound can rattle the strings and have a form of feedback. Stand with your back toward the amp for example. If that doesn't help, take your guitar to the dealer and try it on another of the same type... see if it does the same. Also where you use it, make sure nothing is rattling in the area that can fool you as to how it sounds...

I'm trying to get a crunchy metal sound from my peavey 112 bandit. What should I set my controls to?


Overdrive is the key to the crunchy metal sound. The only effect on that amp is reverb.
You may want to consider getting an overdrive pedal to get the sound you want.

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.

The correct order for Effects pedals.


Personally, I like to have all "tone effects", such as wahs, distortions and equalizers in front of "time effects" such as phasers, chorus, flangers and delays. See my set up in the photo. Guitar input is from right to left, starting with the wah pedal.
