Ok im sitting here on my computer playing tabs wheni stopped i heard music, and it was not my music, i listened closer and heard ta;king i moved my guitar and it got louder!!! So i came to a conclusion that my guitar and my amp work as a radio reciver!!!! HAs that happened to any of you?

Apparently this happens quite a bit, never happened to me the most i've got is a "Dup du du dup" sound when a text or call is about to come through my phone

Mine picked up my watch ticking quite clearly, but I guess that's pretty common.

It was so cool when it happened to me, i was playing some house of the rising sun when suddenly i heard some metallica-esque band, i checked my tv; nope, i checked the radio; and it was playing on my favourite station but i turned off the radio and its was the amp!


That was like a WHAT THE **** experience

this is an easy fix, just make sure the wires are grounded right. and stations will be harder to pick up
#13
Yeah I got it once while playing with a wah pedal, I put it all the way forward and suddenly I started hearing talking coming from my amp... I was pretty new to guitar back then and was like WTF?

I thought I was going schizofrenic (sp?), seriously lol

yeah, you can... it's not anything that's going to damage your gear, just move to a different spot and it should go away or get louder, as you said

Before I ever heard of amps picking up radio signals, it happened..... and what did it pick up? Some losers trying to sing "Diary of Jane" during commercial. A very "WTF" experience.

Then the power went out right after I turn it off...lucky nothing blew! haha good story round the fire tho... w/ an acoustic that is

im pretty sure it has almost nothing to do with tube microphonics, but more to do with the fact that all the conducters carrying your signal to the amp's preamp serve as an antenna because they aren't grounded well enough for the situation and that additional signal is sent through the amp's stages and is amplified enough to drive the speaker. it is, however, a fairly common and most of the time an interesting experience. and yes, tom morello did use it on Sleep Now In the Fire.
for another interesting trick, try pointing your TV remote at your pickups. better to use a universal one so you can very the tones. THIS is what i dont understand, because i thought remotes used infrared, and i know pups are electromagnets. sounds cool though.
