    Hi sandmanz

    You have to remeber that the amp is only 10 watts, sounds like the output stage is going into overdrive. When this happens, you may get some odd noises from the amp. A 6.5" speaker and 10 watts will always tend to cringe a bit when you try to "turn up the bass".
    How much do you turn it up?

Guitar amp continuous humming from speaker


Firstly, do not disconnect the speakers from the amp when it is on. Damage is possible.

You have a bad ground somewhere in the hookup. The first suspect would be your guitar-to-amp cord shielding connections at each plug, then, the wiring in your guitar. Try changing each of these to another as a trial, one at a time.

Ground hum from Martin OOCXAE having Fishman preamp...


do you have active or passive pick-ups? if active, pop in a new 9volt battery, that might do it, it worked for me. if that doesnt work, go to guitar center or somewhere and get a heavier insulated, better constructed cord. sonds like you might be completing the ground from interference if its not your battery. hope this helps

Fender Frontman 65r Grounding Issues


Hi,

It could be a grounding problem with your inputconnector.
There could be a bad connection between the jackinput and the faceplate/chassis.

Roland AC90 crackles when using a slide.


It is because the AC-90 is not grounded. If you look at the power cable, there is just + and -, no ground/earth. This is because ground is not usually needed when using acoustic guitars/ mikes. If you use an electric guitar, or a slide, there will be problem. I have a AC60, that does go to ground. No hum. AC90=hum. Can probably be fixed by attaching new power cable and soldering earth to the chassis, like on the ac60.

Hi lumberman597

The cool thing about guitar amps is that you can mess with the knobs until you find the sound that you like. There is no particular way to use it, just try to find a tone that suits you. Start with gain controls down and tone knobs at 12o'clock. Turn up the gain(one at a time) to get distortion and more sustain to your sound. Turn the distortion up midrange down and treble up for metal sounds, more bass and midrange for bluesy sounds. just play around with it and you will see what I mean. Here is a guide from Fender on how to setup your guitar. If you are not sure, a good guitar tech can make any old axe feel and sound great with a good setup
unfortunately, Fender do not have an electronic copy of your owners manual to download, but you can buy one for $5 direct from them here It is only a 1 page manual.... so you will get more from just messing with it.

Musicians spend there whole lives tuning and tweaking knobs to get the sound they are looking for. It wont take you long to start doing the same.:)
