I got a Peavey Vypyr VIP 2 and things were great when I was using it at home. When I took it to work I started getting weird static, that sounded like waves. That static can increase or decrease if I move or if I place the guitar cable in a different position.

I took it home to try it with my other guitar and my other cables, but I got zero noise. So I took it back to work and now I'm getting the static again.

What gives? How can I get rid of it?
That is most likely electromagnetic interference.

You either get some better shielded cables or you play in a different place.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I guess spambots are now capable of reading minds.
One of the things that can cause a static-like noise in amplifiers is a plasma screen television. Mine causes enough noise that I have to make sure it is turned off whenever I play. And I don't have to be in the same room with the TV, either. Maybe someone near your work has one running?
