Hi Guys,
I hope I have this in the right forum, don't shoot me if I don't.

I have just bought a Peavey 6505 head and I am blown away by it. I'm running a pedal board with a few pedals on it.

The problem is:
I have a tube screamer in my rig (it's in the line between the guitar and the amp, not in the effects loop). Inside my pedal board I have a DC brick to supply my pedals with power, I can't be doing with having to buy endless amounts of 9V batteries. However, when I wack the amp up to say 6 (which is VERY loud on a Peavey 6505!!) at say gig volume, I get horrendous feedback from the amp, this is when my guitar volume pot is turn down! I.E. guitar is muted!

However, if I run the tube screamer from a 9V battery, I don't get this problem at all! What is all this about? Hopefully someone can shed light on the situation. Should I inviest in a new DC brick? I've had it about 3 or 4 years (the DC Brick) and its been gigged lots, but still seems to be working fine, just as the day I got it.

Anybody got any ideas :-S

Thanks in advance for reading guys.
Pete

Hi jaybals.
I thought that, so I moved my pedalboard away from the amp, no difference. My amp is probably a yard away from the nearest plug socket but so was my last amp (ashdown fallen angel and 2 marshall cabs) and I never had that issue.

haha I think I have it sussed. I'm 95% sure it's earth hum from the ring main in my house. I'll get a earth hum filter from Maplins and see if that cures it.
