Just a thought:

If you used the speakers with another amp and they still make noise when you play certain frequencies, then it is obviously a problem with the speakers or the cabinet - it could be a mechanical resonance in some part of a speaker / cabinet, something like a loose screw or a nut, loose protection mesh on the speakers that resonates at certain frequencies, possibly a bad speaker or a speaker membrane...

Also, you might want to check the pickups on your guitar, see if the pickup core slug under the A string is much closer to the string than the other slugs so it is either picking up too much signal and distorting it or the string might be touching the slug when you play it and cause noise, also see if the string is touching something else when it vibrates...

good luck

How do i adjust intonation on a peavey predator plus exp?


To adjust the intonation on a guitar you need the following. ..
a electronic tuner
and a small philip screwdriver

when you tune a string say low E you play the note open and adjust tell it's in tune
then to intonate play the low E at the 12th fret
producing a Harmonic, view the tuner it will be sharp or flat,
turn the small philip screw on the bridge adjustment
it only takes a small turn one way or the other so go slow
once the string is tuned at the harmonic note check to see if it's in tune played open, keep tuning and adjusting tell the strings are in tune open and at the 12th fret on all six strings
once intonation is set properly the guitar will sound better
really hope that helps?

Nashville tele that has the g string sounds off when playing


if you have the adjustable bridge try moving it back a little bit. the g string is a heavy string and will tend to go sharp when you have the string height up a little. make small adjustments usually only one turn or half a turn at a time. take care to note your adjustments so you can always go back to where you started. turners are nice but the ear doesn't lie. if it sounds right it's right

Could be the level from your guitar is too high OR low. Too low the tuner can't get reliable signal... Too high and the tuner will see harmics of the strings. Make sure you set onboard shape or EQ's flat. You CANNOT tune while playing CHORDS... A single note at a time please...

Hello! I've bought a Fender Rumble 75 about 3 months ago and it sounded great really but after some loud playing (About 75% of max volume) it started to buzz at midrange notes, and its gets worse as time...


Try plugging another sound source into the unit. The buzz MAY be pickup of magnetic fields in your guitar pickup that clobber your notes from the strings. Bad guitar cables are another possibility. By putting clean music from say a CD player into the unit you can find where the source is. If the CD player generates the same noises, then likely you have a failure of filter caps in the amp or other component failures. Also make sure your guitar can't "hear" the amp as feedback can do strange things.

The problem I have with my music man bongo bass 4 strings,,, is that the string 4 at fret 5 sounds very strange as making waves, but it sounds good with the other tones, on the other strings when I play...


Check first it is not hitting or touching the next few frets, in case they are high. Or maybe the 5th fret is low. You could raise the action and/or adjust the neck relief to test this.

If it is not a fret problem, it may be a real dead spot on your bass. If so, it would be regardless of the pickup used and could be heard acoustically if you could hear notes that low easily. Most guitars have notes on the fretboard somwhere that are a little dead. It is due to destructive interference and there is not much that can be done. To happen at the 5th fret is unusual though. Make sure the string is wound properly around the head, and that nothing is loose and actually moving/buzzing when you play the note.
Other causes can be a loose fret, loose bridge parts or a loose neck joint.

You have analyzed the problem... with the strings muted, the unit is quiet... that means the problem is with the guitar or cable picking up the noise. Move the guitar around near other things to search out the source which is probably magnetic fields... orient the guitar differently to sniff for the source. OFTEN lamp dimmers generate higher frequency components that can couple into the guitar pickups. The problem is fairly common.

You likely are in an area that has magnetic fields. Also you may have the settings on the amp that accentuates the noise. Eliminating this noise, especially at low levels, can be difficult if you have devices like flourescent lights that have magnetic ballasts.

You might also try running a different source into the amp such as a walkman player to verify the audio can be cleanly amplified. If that works, then the amp is OK.
