Hi, when I turn on the distortion on my amp, on certain notes, they buzz and the amp makes a strange noise.... did I blow my amp, or is it just som adjustments to do ?
my amp is a Marshall avt 150h with a 4x12 cab

If you had an audio clip of the noise it would help, right now your description is a little vauge, but one thing you could do is check your guitar and see if the truss rod needs any adjusting, if thats off it can make a buzz.

check your tubes


It's an AVT. There's only one.


Is it working fine on the clean channel? Is the problem only at certain volumes? Sounds like it could be a speaker problem.

Its, like when i play on my 7 string, the lowest notes, all the way to the A on the 3 lowest string , creates a big BUUUUMMMM sound for some reason... I did forget to take out the power cable this summer, when it was a storm....

Cheap/ripped speakers most likely - if it's the AVT cab, they're absolute junk.

yeah, its fine on the clean channel, but on the OD2, and when I turn on my Boss ML-2, the sound comes !

It is I think, I bought it used from a local guy, only 6500 norwegian kroner, which is prob 1000 bucks ++

It could be just speaker distortion from the bass...ie. too much bass through too little a speaker or something like that.

Try changing your strings.
In the 22nd century, how many guitarists is needed to replace a light source?

Five. One to actually do it, and four to reminisce about how much better the old tubes were.
