Hello

I own a VOX AD30VT Amp.
Lately The amp has become noisier when i am using overdrive. especially when i use US Highgain.

Is this normal for a $250-300 amp? I also wonder if it is the guitar. When i touch the jack at the cable the noise disapears. Why is this happening?


Here is a sample.

Is this normal? The guitar is a Epiphone Les Paul 100.

I am new to this forum so be gentle


EDIT 11/09/2006 23:09 GMT +1: It's late, and i'm going for school tomorrow. I'll respond about 15:00 GMT +1 tomorrow. When i'm back from school. Good night

i dunno. I've tried 2 different cables. The results are always the same.


Either both the cables have a problem, or there is a loose wire at the input jack of your guitar.

Now i do live in norway.

I have noticed a piece of metal sticking out inside the jack of the amplifier. I haven't tried other guitars.

It's the earth wire in the guitar. Get someone who knows what they're doing to look at it.

I tried to plug the amp in at the kitchen. Still when its pluged to earth connection, the noise stays the same.

As said above it is the earth wire inside of your GUITAR, not the earth of your electricity supply. You need to get the Guitars Earth wire sorted out.

But how the hell am I going to figure that out?
Do i have to take the guitar to a shop?

^I'd say so. Take your guitar, amp and cables into a shop and they should be able to sort it all out for you.

Washburn D10s Acoustic

I had this same problem a few back with mine. It's the noise gate. The ADVT series have built in noise gates. Usually, this is turned off on accident. To change it, turn off all effects and hold down the edit button. While holding it down, turn the effects level knob (The small one). The further to the left, the less noise reduction. Closer to right, more. Be careful, though. The more you have, the less sustain high notes might have. Nothing's wrong with the amp.

Its just the wire that goes from a volume pot (which all of the electronics are grounded to), to the tremolo claw or something metal thats connected to the guitar's body. Most guitars will make a noise unless you touch something metal on the guitar (including the strings).

Edit: It sounds either its the ground connection on your guitar come loose/interferance (do you have single coils? - Being next to a TV is bad for single coils)/or an amp problem. Try turning the amp off fast and leave it a few seconds and back on again.

What do you mean about turning all effects? Set to boutique Cl and buypass? And why is this turned off on accident? i had a videoclip from when i got the amp. i can still hear the noise. So i think it was there from the beginning.

if its a strat, just take off the back plate and see if theres a wire soldered onto the trem claw.



As said in the first thread, it's a les paul with two humbuckers.
