Hey,
i have a AX1500G with a washburn X-11
sometimes i feel that the noise is minimal and at other time i fell its just too ****ty.
all on the same patch.
i was wondering whether the voltage and electricity or an external force can have any effect on the noise. and if so ... any remedies??


thanks

Yeah, a poorly regulated power supply or obsolete wiring/grounding methods in your house/practice room/veue can increase the amount of hum and noise, as can the presence of any nearby electrical devices containing transformers- TVs, monitors, florescent lights etc.

Try using batteries instead of a power supply with your Korg, sometimes power supplies can add to the noise. Also try plugging your amp into different wall sockets and see which is quieter, or maybe use a filtered and regulated power strip. Oh, and replace your leads as well, a faulty lead can produce a heck of a lot of noise and crackle.

like said, check ur guitar lead, input jack on the guitar, all wire connections.
dont play near a computer or while a dimmer light or fan is on.

either get a higher end power source (if chaining) or use batteries.
