When i turn my amp up full, there is a german talker, can an amp, or pickup....detect radio waves?.......it does it with my phone, when i play my music on my phone, it comes through my amp,

its a single coil, fender strat stock, my amp is line6 spider 2, it confused the hell outa me, where is there a german guy in my amp?

could it be a neighbours radio? or something on their TV? i live in england, not germany lol

EDIT : i dont think this is the right forum, its todo with an amp, but should it go in the pit?
If you cant do it, do it anyway, its more fun
you know youre a guitar player when you finger your fretboard more than your girlfriend

any unshielded wire in your amp, guitar, effect, etc..., can act as an antennae.

ahh, i see

if you have a relative or a buddy that knows electronics, have them re-cover your wires with whatever it is they cover wires with

may costy you a buck or two cuz you gotta A)find the source (guitar or amp) and B) you gotta find the wire doin it

and f that dont work... then at least you have shiney new wires

OMFG The Germans are coming!!!


no seriously, is it a radio station or is it really like the voice of a man without any music or... because that would be pretty creepy.
try to go practice in a different room perhaps? or put your amp in a different position/place.

it's a german guy stuck inside your amp. Line 6 quality control is pretty crappy...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
