Hi everyone,
I just bought a B.C. Rich Mockingbird ST . It comes with 2 black open Rockfield mafia humbuckers Pickups. Picture

Anyway, when I play clean the guitar sounds great , but when I put it on distortion it sounds buzzy and not clear.

My questions are :
1. Is this problem caused by the guitar it self , the Pickups or the amp. ?

2. If the problem is from my amp., Dose buying a distortion pedal ganna fix the problem?

P. S. : I have a Zoom Fire M-36 Modeling amp.

Thanks guys
A drumer is needed!!

A decent distorion pedal would do you good either way.

It could quite possibly be your amp and guitar. B.C. Rich guitars arn't exactly the clearest mother ****ing guitars when it comes to distortion. I suggest getting a new amp.

I say it might be the strings or pick-ups?

Sound clip would help BTW.


Don't want to be an ass, but no man, it's neither and it practically never is.

It's the amp, it's damn near everytime the amp unless your guitar has, like, an electrical failure or something which this obviously dosn't have because it's somewhat higher end and it sounds good clean.

A dist pedal may get you a bit further towards a nice sound but well if your amp's distortion is crap then I'd go get a new amp and go from there.

Get a new amp man. Before you do, try your guitar out on one of your friend's amp.

Make sure it's a good amp.

You'll definitely want to look into a new amp. You've got a 600$ guitar and a 200$ amp.
