Ok, I have a crappy Fender frontman 15G amp. It's my first one as I am just a beginner. Well, for a while it sounded like the speaker was blown inside so I stopped playing for a while. Now I picked it back up and that isn't an issue any longer. But I get this loud humming when I have the gain on no matter how far away I am from the amp. I bought a new cord and that didn't help either.

What to do?
it could be the ground in the guitar probably just needs to be resoildered
Prs Custom 24
Fender Jaguar
Gibson Les paul standard dc
Ibanez as71

Peavey xxx
Crate v-32h/cab

Dimebag wah
carbon copy
evh phase
blackstart ht-duel
holy grail plus
electric mistress stereo
Unfortunately, when amps like this go south there really isn't much you can do. The cost to diagnose and fix won't be worth it. Time for a new amp me thinks.

^ +1, it doesn't hurt to try your guitar in another amp or a different guitar in your amp to narrow this down.

thanks. I'm thinking of pickin up bass so I'll probably just toss it and sell the guitar.

I got it cheap off of craigslist, so I shouldn't have expected much.
