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?

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.
