My Amp possessed?

So my buddy was playing on my practice amp(and only amp for now).. :-/ Line 6 spider........ when all of a sudden I started to get radio frequencies through it. it was some kind of radio show. you could hear people talking ... and the first words outta my amp said... was.... "Demons"......

Anyone else have this problem!?

Happens all the time. Especially if you live near a radio tower.

Or a hellmouth.

Similar story: I was playing guitar on my friend's amp (also a line 6 oddly enough) then suddenly we hear a phone ringing through it, then "...hello?" Shortly after I got a text from my girlfriend at the time saying "Did you just try and call me?"

So yeah, my amp called my girlfriend. That ho.

Never had an amp make phone calls, but I have had radio frequencies picked up before. Just happens due to bad shielding somewhere along your signal chain.

My old SP-10 use to pickup radio frequencies, but neither my Line6 Spider 3 nor my Peavey Bandit 112 do that.

Lol that happens sometimes. I'll be playing my guitar all of a sudden I hear opera music coming out of my amp.

my ss amp picks up 97.9fm (which here is the hard rock station), so i'll turn on my amp, get the right setting for a clear fm transmition, then rock out to the songs on my tube amp.

That sounds funny.

If you put your guitar up to your chest, you can hear your heartbeat through your amp.
HILT!

They call them line 6 spiders because there is actually a spider in there. He probably just got lonely and wanted to make friends.

After reading this forum for about 5 minutes, you'll see that the line 6 spider is very, VERY, lonely.

Fuzz pedals are a good one for picking up radio frequencies, pedals I own with germanium transistors in the circuitry seem to be the worst ones for it from my own experiences. It tends to be a combination of guitar type, cable type, pedals and amp.
