i recently bought a fender american stratocaster and i noticed that when i push the amp to gain mode(distortion) any amp i do it with, its like when i dont make a sound, but its on volume theres a buzzing sound...when i asked the salesman in the store he said "thats the price you have to pay for that fender distorted sound..." and i was wondering if there was a way of making that noise go away with anything, maybe an efect or a pre amp

any suggestions?

Google it, just make sure it's because of the feedback....that guitar store guy is a kunt too.

I BELIEVE

my amp does that..... its not the guitar, ive got a Marshall Valvestate VS100 140kW
some pickups have more of the fuzzy sound than others. but usually its only loud fuzzy sound when u have the volume right up.....and if thats the case you really cant hear it if you are playing..... if im gunna stop for a minute, just turn volume on guitar down and the fuzziness stops.

if i have it on Clean with no overdrive channels on, i get none.


EDIT: im not sure if its the same thing ur asking about, because for me its really no problem. dont really even notice it....

It's just the buzz from the electrical current and background interference.. it's cuz of the single coils. Don't worry about it.. best guitar players had it.

But what you can do is replace the pickups like with some dimarzios or fenders that have noiseless coils.

Yeah, I agree with the pickup change over a noise suppressor....You could possibly nail two birds with one stone.

New tone, plus less or no feedback. winz winz situation.

Ya, it might be because of the single coils. Some fender strats come with noise cancelling pickups in the middle. The interference comes, I think, from when you are using two pickups rather than just one, not sure though. Something about having a reverse wound pick cancells the hum. I know that this is not exactly right and might not even help you out but maybe someone else can clear up what I am getting at.
#11
As people have already said, its because of the single coils. If you want to stop it, you're going to have to either get a humbucker installed, or get noiseless pickups.

Like the guy said, thats the price you have to pay for that distorted strat sound!

Since we are on the subject; would someone with a HSS set up be able to avoid the hum? Just wondering since I am considering buying a HSS model, if I ever have the cash.

If you can't buy a new set of pickups, you can sheild the body cavity and around the pickups and this will reduce it greatly. Also if there is a TV or Computer Moniter anywhere around turn them off. These produce a 60 cycle hum that can mess with single coils and by doing this it will eliminate the buzz almost completely.

Anything with a humbucker usually isn't affected by the 60 cycle hum from computers, but I still suggest shielding it.

i have stock pickups but i rewired them with 16 gauge wiring and sheilded all the wiring with copper ..... i got a little feedback at first, but i blew my amp so now i play through my stereo with a new pedal and i dont have any feedback at all ..... i suggest the korg ax3g you can get it for $50 at guitar center or musiciansfriend. its got like 80 presets for multi effects and you can edit them all and shit ..... plus it has like 5 reverbs and noise supression and it puts out pretty good tone. most amps ive used have had shitty distortion and produced a lot of feedback with no matter what guitar i heard. pedals are better anyways in my opinion, more control options plus you can operate them while your playing

You guys need to properly shield and wire your pickups. Your Pups should NOT be wired to the pots. There are other shielding mods you can make to reduce and possibly elimminate noise. If you don't know anything about wiring and soldering take the following article to a local guitar tech and have them do it for you.

or you can grow to love it. many guitarists use feedback like hendrix, morello, pretty much every 90s alternative rock guitarist. if not but some new pickups
