Hello, i got a problem my sound on my amplifier. Whenever i turn the distortion up it starts to make really annoying sound, like a buzz. Whenever i dont hit the strings it just buzzing all the time. I dont know what the problem is, maybe its the guitar maybe its the amplifier.

I use a effect pedal called zoom g2.1u and i made a "heavy metal" patch and the sound is just awfull i cant play because the buzz just messes everything up.

Some other information about my gear:
I use a Peavey 112 Bandit amplifier and my guitar is this crappy les paul copy.


Here is a sample of it:

Any tips?
Can it be the guitar?

Does it go away when you touch the strings? If so thats normal, the only way to minimize it is to sheidl your guitar or buy a noise gate. I recomend shielding if you can solder, its cheaper as well and works wonders.

^ That's not normal. The guitar isn't grounded if that is the case.

most likely a grounding issue.. either the guitar's bridge is not connected to the ground wire or the power supply socket you use is not properly grounded. (i apologize for my nontechnical english)

Is your guitar next to electric devices like TVs, PCs, microwaves, whatever?

unplug your amp from any multiple power strip and go direct into the wall outlet. if that does`t cure it check the wiring on the guitar , could be ground hum from other appliances that are running at a differet frequency to the amp, a common cause is flourescent light in buildings with old wiring, and tv`s pc`s, fridges.

Seriously, it's probably computers and stuff interfering, it's most probably the amps fault, not the guitars.
Wait.

It is normal to a degree. It shouldn't be overpowering though, if it is overpower then its something like a loose ground wire within the guitar. However if his gain is cranked to 10 then hes gonna get alot of hum.
