A guitarist in our band has a Boss multieffects pedal that he uses for some songs. When he plugs into the wall for power the amp creates a buzzing sound. Im assuming this is coming from interference from the wall or other source because when he uses battery power the buzzing lessens. I didnt really know what to tell him to fix it so I come to you.

Any suggestions on how to eliminate buzz when plugging directly into the wall outlet?

It's probably a grounding problem on the practice studio's side of things.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

He's using a two prong wall wort right? It's the standard adapter for all effects. I started using the BBE Supa-Charger with my effects. It has a three prong plug so it's automatically grounded. It removed a lot of noise from my effects chain.

How much was the BBE? I think youre right, the adapter is only two prong.
