With really high cables it's not really noticeable.
Or maybe I got used to it.
Just play over 1.

I thought this amp was really good qaulity though... It shouldn't have that hiss(thanks nutingpwns for putting it more colloquially), does it get bad? Like, take away from my music bad?

If you're playing it loud, you'll probably want a Decimator.

Then you should probably save up for some boutique amp (or tubes that may make it quieter).

Almost any amp no matter how high quality will get hiss during high-gain applications.
It's almost rarely caused by the amp itself though, things like pedals, pickups, wall sockets, etc. cause hiss most of the time.

If it really gets unbearable you can buy a noise reduction pedal,
but I seriously doubt it's going to be that bad.

Just wondering, will the noise reducer that you plug into the outlet help too?
And cheers to you too.

I'm not quite sure what you mean? What noise reducer which you plug into what outlet?

I saw a while ago, in a guitar player mag, some block that you first plug into the power outlet then plug your amp into. It supposedly stops feedback and fuzz.

Can't say I've ever seen that before
A Decimator should sort you out ok.

From my experience before I bought a decimator (excellent pedal), if I cranked the volume up to 3-3.5 (which is almost piercing ears-this amp is LOUD) there's noise with the gain past 5. A noise suppressor is a must for this amp. But-on the bright side-the sound was still brutal with the gain around 4.

Do you guys run the noise gate infront of the amp or in the loop?



I use mine in the front end. Never tried it in the loop but I've heard it doesn't work as well.

There's different hum. If it's a low hum that is addable with the guitar volume all the way down, that MIGHT be"60 cycle hum". That's a problem with your electrical systems grounding (not the amp). The HumX plugged into your outlet in between your amps power chord might take care of it - or try another outlet in your house, preferably in another room. Also (on the 5150) there's a three way toggle ground switch. The default position is in the middle. If there is one on your amp, try the other two.

From Wiki:

"Because of their natural inductive qualities, all magnetic pickups tend to pick up ambient and usually unwanted electromagnetic noises. The resulting noise, the so-called "hum", is particularly strong with single-coil pickups, and aggravated by the fact that very few guitars are correctly shielded against electromagnetic interference. The most frequent cause is the strong 50 or 60 Hz component that is inherent in the frequency generation of current within the local power transmission system. As nearly all amplifiers and audio equipment associated with electrical guitars rely on this power, there is in theory little chance of completely eliminating the introduction of unwanted hum."

Also, there's an inherent "sizzle" with these amps when using high gain. A noise gate should take care of most of that, but not all. It can be tamed with mods.

I couldn't stand the white noise coming from the 6505 I used to play. The ISP does wonders with that amp.

Putting it in front of the amp will get rid of 85% of the noise. Having another one in the loop will get rid of the remaining 15% of the hiss/hum.

I guess that would make something like the rack mount smart gate a good choice since it would allow you to gate both ends.
#24
Either that or the ISP G-String which is exactly that in pedal form (but a fair bit more expensive than the Decimator.

fuzz and nose is your cross to bear with a 6505. noise gate in front of and behind the amp is the best way ive found to combat that
