I just hooked up my wah-pedal for the first time in months. I wasn't playing anything yet, and I noticed there was a strange noise. I turned it up to realize that it was actually music playing through my amp.

So now, I can't really even use my wah because the noise is so retarded.

Above all else, it picks up a shitty pop station. It couldn't be 95.7 or some other rock. I'm kind of pissed.

Must be nice to have music playing through your amp for once.

Happened when I was testing an AC30 at a music store once.

EDIT: ^ lol

Lol yea, most of what I play isn't actually music.

What I intended to say was, whole songs are playing through it. Crappy beats, singing, the whole shebang.

You think you've got it bad? I live on the 4th floor of an apartment building in Seattle, so I pick up the strongest mother****ing radio signal you've ever heard through both of my amps. Pretty sure it's NPR news, but it's all fuzzed out. At least you can choose not to use a wah pedal - I don't really have any options.

You just have a broken ground in your pedal. Get it fixed and your issue will be solved.

EDIT: Try using different cables too, sometimes the ground could be faulty in one of your cables which could make it receive radio signals.

Really? That's very interesting. It can run on a battery, so I think I'll run out and buy one tomorrow. That should also work.

Thanks for the advice. I can't honestly say that I expected a helpful answer

Wah pedals and fuzz pedals are both notorious for picking up radio signals.

I think it's worse if your guitar isn't properly grounded, which a shocking number aren't. I mean, most aren't properly shielded, but you'd at least think they'd bother to ground them.

Shitty cables can also contribute to the problem. The best advice is to not cheap out on cables, but don't buy overpriced stuff, either.

I don't think the issue lies with my guitar. Even when I unhook it from the pedal, I still have Gaga streaming through my amp. It could be the cable, as it is kind of old. I'll switch to a newer one and see if that does anything.

Try being lactose intolerant. Yeah... your pedal doesn't seem so bad now, does it?

I looked up what heart palpitations are, so do you just feel like your heart skips a beat then the next one is a bit stronger? Like there's a tiny wait and you can feel it coming?

I had the same issue with mine a while back. It happens a lot with pedals that boost the signal. It'll probably stop when the weather changes or something.
