Your other amps don't get hum?

Does it do it on only the gain channel, or the clean channel as well?

I gave up on hum so long ago, why do single coils have to sound some damn crisp and clear!?
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

pre and post gain are on a decent level?

just through the lead gain channel mate, does my head in proper loud n that


Mine does the same thing, slight hum on crunch and a pretty good amount on the lead channel. Only way have I have been able to cure the issue is adding a noise gate in the effects loop.

ive run it through a tube screamer and a boss noise supressor but the noise supressor doesnt do much tbh
#14
+1 to the decimator, peavey 5150/6505/6505+ are freakin noisy amps.

*edit*

did you run the noise gate in the loop?

would i help if i ran them through my effect thing at the back of the head?
and how would i do that ?

I have a decimator and it doesn't get rid of all the hum. If all you're getting is hum, but a power conditioner.

That might be 60 cycle hum (ground loop, mains, etc.)

This might fix that...

It's to combat hum caused by electrical wiring issues in your outlets.

I don't think you have that because it's quiet on the clean channel right?

That's the nature of the beast. A noise gate/supressor should take care of that for you.

Yeah, you're just getting the standard feedback that you will get from high-gain amplifiers, a noise gate/suppressor will fix this problem.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

i got a boss noise supressor running through it already still pretty loud humming


Is it in front of the amp, in the effects loop or are you running it in an x pattern?

In front of the amp helps with feedback.
In loop helps with hum.
X pattern helps with both.

Just out of interest, what guitar are you using?

If all you had to go on was the forum you'd think a Decimator could cure noise caused by dodgey stage lighting and restock the ocean's population of sperm whales
