I am trying to work out the cause of a buzzing when I am not playing.
My old guitar doesn't make this buzzing with the same amp (a Marshall MG15DFX),
so it seemed as if the problem was with the guitar.
However, the new guitar is fine on the clean channel.
Also, when the guitar is plugged in but the volume on the guitar is set to 0 there is no noise.
The buzzing is slightly different in pitch on each pickup.

Can anyone suggest anything?
Thanks.

It probably is due to te pickups. Cheaper pickups do have a certain amount of buzzing. Even higher end pickups do buzz a little, although it's not as much as the cheap ones do, of course.

is it a cable that is acting funny when the distortion goes through it? that's my best guess.

60 cycle hum?

Your guitar is just feeding back. eventhough you are not playing your guitar the strings are still moving or your guitar is to close to the amp. touch the strings when the buzzing starts and if that doesnt work move your guitar farther away from the amp.

No, it works fine with the same cable but my old guitar.

It's a Ernie Ball Musicman Axis with a different bridge.

Touching the strings seems to stop half of the buzzing, it seems as if two things are buzzing. Moving away from the amp made no difference.


I'll look up 60 cycle hum and see if it sounds like its that.

Thanks to everyone.
