I have an amp and two guitars, the amp does not have a 3 prong plug. The amp will play music from my PC fine from the same input but using both the guitars it creates a very loud buzz that changes if I touch metal on the guitar. I checked the guitar with a multimeter and it seems to all be grounded so the only thing I can think of is the crap quality cable I have. Could this be it?

1) Is the amp made to play music from ur pc?

2) is the amp made to be used with two guitars at once?

3) are u and the person playing the other guitar the same polarity?!?!

I just phrased that as a joke, but it wasn't. Ur talking about number 3?

I can't really tell though from the vague description of "loud buzz that change if I touch the strings". Does it go away or does it get louder when u touch the strings? Are you trying to play guitar with somebody else? Is the person using pedals between the amplifier? Are the grounds isolated between guitar inputs? Etc.

It is just a tiny beginners amp. One guitar at once, but if I touch metal on the guitar it quiets down a bit. I don't believe it is a guitar problem as both do it. There is no pedals etc.

OH SO U HAVE TWO GUITARS BUT NOT NECESSARILY PLAYING THEM AT ONCE!!!


Ok.


Guitar stopping to hum when touching metal parts is completely normal with a strat styled guitar. With a humbucker it is rare though.

Yeah they are both strat style. So the loud buzzing must be from the cheap cable. The cable also seems quite thin and is probably not shielded.
