I have had this problem for a little while now and I cannot seem to figure it out. I plug my guitar straight into my amp. The amp buzzes pretty aubibly but when I touch the bridge or the strings, the buzzing goes drastically down.


I tried a different guitar and the buzzing was still there. I even went up to my local shop and they plugged it into like 5 amps and the buzzing was not there so it is not my guitar.

I tried a different cable, even a 6ft long one, the buzzing was still there

I tried different outlets, still a buzz

I tried surge protector / no surge protector and still a buzz

I don't have any interferences that I know of, (tvs, radios, etc.)

so im pretty sure its my amp. What the heck is going on? Can anyone help me?

could be faulty wiring. could just be a bad amp. also, be more constructive with your feedback. =)

sounds to me like it could be a grounding issue within the amp. it sucks, but you'd probably have to open up the amp and check out for faulty connections.

electrical devices close to your guitar could be interfering with it, such as a computer or tv

Definitely sounds like you have a grounding issue, which you resolve with your body when you touch something metal on the guitar.

Have you tried the amp outside of your house? Maybe you could bring in a buddy's amp that you know not to have the same problem and plug it in at your place and see if you get the same buzz. This way you could isolate it to the house or your amp.
