I originally thought it was my wah, but I was able to hear the sound when nothing was plugged into my amp. It had been a couple weeks since I heard it, but it was back today.

It sounds like a truck is backing up in my living room!

Has anyone heard of this before? Any ideas?

Can't turn it up past 2, but I try to play it every day.

I couldn't tell you exactly how old the tubes are for sure. I just bought it a couple months ago, and the guy said he had replaced them a couple months prior.

Could a bad tube/s cause this? It's like an alarm going off.

Do you wear a watch while you play?

Edit: If you do, then that's the problem. take the watch off of your picking hand while playing because the pickups will amplify the clicking.

Do you do it all the time, and do you use any pedals? I'm not familiar with tube issues, but it could be that.

Edit: Also the guy above said the watch. That could do it. Also if your cellphone is sitting on the amp that can also cause something like this. I had that problem and it was that.

maybe ur amp picks up electromagnetic waves like radio signals or something..?


Phones are across the room. I guess it could be the computer. It's only 5 or so feet away. I'll have to try it with the comp off.

Also, it's the only thing plugged into that outlet.

I wear my watch all the time, but it's not digital, and the amp was making the sound when I was several feet away, and no wires were plugged into it.

edit: Also, my watch is not on my picking hand.

There we go. Problem solved, move the amp away from the computer. Like to the other side of the room.

its probably interference from either the computer or phones, try playing it in a room without anything like that and if it stops then you know what the problem was.

Okay, so I just:

(Deep breath)

Cut all power going to my computer, put my watch as far as I could get it from my amp (30 or so feet with a wall and a door in between), pulled the battery out of both my cell phones, pulled the power cord out of my wireless router and modem, pulled the power cord from my 360 and my Wii, turned off all the lights, and pulled the plug on the microwave and the refrigerator, and drug my heavy ass amp all around my apartment.

The sound could be heard the whole time.

If it's electro-magnetic waves causing this, it's coming from one of my neighbors and they're not home.

Anything else this could be?

+1 an amp at my local shop could clearly pick-up the local gospel station when it was placed against an exposed metal support beam lol.

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.
