Hello guys, I am a new member here, good to meet you all anyway I just bought a ESP/LTD M-1000 snow white with a Peavey Bandit 112s (2008) model, I haven't played in over 2 years, this is my first time with EMG 81 active pickups, I was wondering if it's normal for the amp to produce more buzzing when I turn my TONE all the way up on the guitar or could it be something defective, I need to know since I still have time to exchange both of them, the peavey is also nice but on high gain it's producing a lot of buzzing which is pretty annoying and I am thinking if I should return it and purchase a Line 6 Spider 4, I can't spend more then about 400 or so dollars, I hear the peavey vypyr has lots of issues and it's not worth getting since they also have tuber versions which would cause more confusion on what's better, anyway I appriciate your time and looking forward to some responses, thanks.

By the way I am into (80s Thrash Metal) older Sepultura with Max Cavalera, Metallica up to Justice, Slayer, Panter, Iron Maiden type of music so I am looking to get a nice amp with good metal tone, I am also thinking of picking up a "METAL MUFF" pedal a little later on.

How high is your gain?

If it is low...

How new is the battery?

Hey, thanks for the replies... forsaknazrael I think you might be correct, I am not sure where to move my gear, I live in a small apartment and I really don't have much of an option, I am probably going to mess around with the amp over the weekend and if I do not like it I might ship it back and get a vypyr or spider 4, and I keep getting mixed feedback on the vypyr and the spider being good and bad like ensel just said lol.... I really don't know which amp to go for, a guy in guitar center said the vypyrs are junk and people keep returning them and that they break a lot, he told me to get a spider 4, so I am still wondering what others think about these two amps aside from that I don't like the fact that vypyr has a tube version and if I do get a vypyr I would want the tuber version instead of the regular. On another note people say that the Peavey Bandit 112 blows away the vypyr and the spider 4 tones you would just have to purchase a multieffect to get some of the desired effects of course.

About the guitar TONE being turned up it naturally produces a bit more buzz when you are on a metal tone though correct ? I want to make sure that my guitar is fine and I don't have to ship it back or anything, on the clean channel it's perfectly fine and this only happens on high gain for distorsion but I will also move them to the livingroom and see if anything changes.
