Hey all! I recently lost my cables at band pracice at school. So i now i use real crappy ones. While using my mt- 2 metalzone with this bad cables i noticed a cracking sound the whole time i play. I aslo restringed my guitar with a lot thicker gauges. Is this the bad cables or thicker strings or both that creates this weird sound?When i play on clean channel it has such horrible buzz like never before with the old cables.any advice?thanx

Yes its more like fret buzz i think. I can hear it clearly on the amp.but theres also buzzing while not playing.

I have a fender frontman 212r(i know its not so good with pedals). I went to check the input jack and its pretty messed up under the rubber. Thanx for help.

If it is fret buzz it wouldn't do it while not playing.... Cables.

I owned a Frontman 212 once.

It is great for pedals actually.

input jack on MZ or FM?

The insert jacks on the Frontman series are not the best. They have had a history of breaking. They are fairly easy to replace if you can get in there. You may need to take it somewhere - especially if it is still under warranty. There are authorized Fender repair places all over the place.
