SOURCE: my fender twin has alot of buzzing and hum noise

It is usually caused by interference somewhere in the room. A major source is art CRT such as a TV ot computer monitor. First try turning off any other electic devices in the room. Your could also see if there is a ground lift switch on the amp. If that dosen't do it, you can try lining the cavity of your guitar with tin foil. I t sounds weird but it does cut back on some interference. If none of those work, bring your amp to your local tech and have the preamp tubes tested. It may be that one of them is going bad.

SOURCE: loud buzzing when amp connects to guitar

The buzzing noise could be caused by a grould feedback loop. This occures when the amp is plugged into one power socket and the guitar's amp is plugged into a drifferent power socket.
Try to use a power board, plug in all your devices into this power board and plug the power board into a power socket.

SOURCE: Unit inoperative, one LED blip on battery install only.

Its possible that if you changed strings the saddle might have changed position in its slot. It has to sit uniformly on top of the piezo element in order to work properly. Try testing the pickup(piezo element) first before suspecting the preamp.

SOURCE: My Fishman Loudbox 100 bass speaker buzzes- what

It is a poor ground but it is not necessarily in your amp.
If it is only buzzing when you have a guitar or other piece of equipment connected try a new lead cable.
If it buzzes all of the time......remove the cover at the rear of the amp and remove control panel.
Inspect the feed line to the input. If it is loose or broken....repair or take to have repaired.

Fishman Loudbox amplifier rattle sound on bass notes


Either the speakers have loosened from the faceplate, or one or more have blown. Open the amp and tighten them down. If that doesn't fix it, remove them a take them to the nearest speaker repair shop for a checkup. If blown either have them re-coned or replace them.

Humbucking pickup not working


Did you solder the wires to your plug well?
Did you place the pickup as in the manual?
Did you connect it to the preamp?

Usually the pickups for acoustic guitar need preamps to work with guitar amplifiers because the signal they produce is low.

Hello, I bought a second hand Martin J1 that has a fishman rare earth single coil pickup fitted. The problem is, when its plugged into the amp ( AER 60w) it makes a cracking noise every so often when


You have several options:

1. Do nothing and live with the occasional problem.

2. Check your guitar cable and the battery connections for loose or intermittent connections/noise. Try to see if it's the amp responsible for the noise....ie, Is it caused by vibrations, or maybe static....especially in winter when it's dry. Your home power may have noise on the line, so borrow or rent a power conditioner which filters out noise. If that fails, go to 3.

3. Bite the bullet and pay a competent guitar tech/luthier to repair it. Most of these issues are due to loose/faulty connections. Should be less than an hour. Hey....It's a Martin.

3a. Pay a guitar tech to loosen the end pin connector so you can see if you can repair it yourself.

Hi ive had a fishman pick up installed under saddle of my accoustic guitar its fine but something is wrong becuase wen im slapping the strings and tapping guitar the sound goes very quiet for around 1...


It is possiblle that the sudden pulse from the pickup due to tapping is saturating the input of your amplifier, and that is what actually kills the signal. Try this into a different amp as a test. Once you do the test I can offer some suggestions to try.

Heavy radio interference when the amp is in use. It's worse at night. I'm using a Taylor 816 acoustic electric guitar with Taylor's balanced quarter inch to XLR cable into my Loud box Performer. Nothing...


Well, the first thing is to find if it is the amp or the guitar. Plug in a guitar cable WITHOUT being in the guitar... is the interference there? If not, the pickup of the interference is in the guitar electronics. In either case, bypass caps need to be instaalled in the offending unit near the input to bypass the interference to ground. You will need to seek someone familiar with electronics to fix this. There is a chance that the only cure will be to distance yourself from the radio transmitter. The transmitter has to be an AM radio type as FM would not generate audio in your system.

Fishman Prefix Plus preamp on my acoustic guitar picks up the unwound strings well but the wound strings are barely audible


You could try boosting the bass and reducing the highs on the EQ setting, however there MAY be a probllem with the pickup, not the preamp.

I get a buzzing from the mic on my Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend that stops when I revert to the pickup only. The buzzing becomes less when I touch the circuit board of the preamp underneath...any ideas?


This is a grounding and shielding problem. It is unknown what type of guitar you have but if there are other electronics, they need to be grounded to this device ground. Any source of magnetic fileds can worsen problems. Transformers in amps, etc. Solid body guitars have special shielding paint and you may be able to improve shielding by painting... just don't get it on circuit boards as it will short out the circuitry.
