This is the bad sound I get when using high gain settings on my amps/effects.

They were recorded at low quality for ease of download so there is some hiss, but you should be able to hear the warbling sound I'm talking about.

What I need to know is - is it from the amp/effects (these were recorded direct btw), or from the guitar.

I thought it might be fretbuzz but I get this from two different guitars, although it doesn't really happen on open strings and it doesn't happen on every fret.
Coud it be pickups? Lower gain settings don't do this.

Do you get the buzz when playing regularly?

It's probably your guitar or amp.

Only when a note is held and sustained.
You can't tell it's there otherwise.

You see, I'd like to know if it'sthe guitar or the amp.
But it happens for two guitars, with an amp and an effects unit direct to sound card.

Change your strings, I had a similar problem and that rectified it.
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a closed-minded moron.
