I've recently encountered a quite strange problem with my Laney VC15, it's hissing loudly.
It's basically burts of noise that kinda sound like a train coming in at a station, or someone very distorted screaming in high pitch. It's not a constant sound, it's comes in waves then dies out for a while. It makes no difference whether it's set to clean or drive and even sounds when i have the volume set to zero.
I have no clue what the problem might be, never heard anything like it. anyone have an idea what it might be?

  • Fender American Standard Telecaster
  • Ibanez RG450
  • Laney VC15
  • Electro Harmonix HOG
  • Vox Satchurator
  • Blackout Effectors Musket fuzz
  • Electro Harmonix Pulsar
  • Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport
  • Malekko Chicklett

It might be your guitar, not the amp. There is a chance that the ground wire detached in your guitar.

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

Try plugging the amp into a different power socket, it might possibly be a grounding issue.

It happens when i have no guitar plugged in as well so that's impossible.
