I'm running a Peavey 6505+ with a Line 6 M13 in the effects loop, and the M13 has stereo outputs for right and left. For experimentation's sake, I ran a cable out of the right side output into the effects return of my Ibanez TBX150 practice amp for stereo effects. But the second I put the cable into the jack, I get a whole bunch of static coming out of both amps. The static isn't terribly loud, but it makes any bedroom level practicing impossible. When I turn the volume up, the amp gets louder, but the static stays the same. Other than the static, the effects work and everything sounds fine, but I can't hear anything over the dull roaring of static.

Neither amp makes any kind of white noise like that until I tie them together. The M13 has a noise gate built into it, and I tired that but it didn't do anything. I just sold a bunch of amps and bought new ones, and my last stereo setup never did this, so I'm confused, and this is really frustrating. I can't imagine a power conditioner helping, but I'm out of ideas. Anyone got any?

Also, its the same hum you get when you have a grounding issue, which neither amp has as far as I know. If that helps at all.

Haha oh but it is a grounding issue, each amp is at a different ground level. You would have to use an isolation transformer or lift the ground of one.

Or plug them into outlets you know have the same ground. Use an extension cord and plug everything in there, then they'll be at the same ground which means no static
