Ok first of all heres my setup.

Gibson Faded SG --> Boss TU-2 Chromatic Tuner --> Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah --> Randall RG50TC

When i turn my volume off on my guitar my amp makes this annoying buzzing noise. If I bypass all my pedals (guitar --> amp) this buzzing noise does not occur when my guitar volume is off.

I have tried using different cables, using the effects look and it all sounds the same. Even when I only use 1 of the pedals (wah or tuner) it still has the buzz noise.

I use a power supply so it can't be bad batteries.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this or is the only solution giving BOTH of the pedals true bypass?

Edit: this only happens on the gain channel. On the clean channel its silent when I have my guitar volume off with or without the pedals.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

Have you tried plugging straight into the amp, no pedals?
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

I had the same problem a couple of months ago, it ended up being i had a innapropiate power supply unit. Do you use a power supply that came with the pedals? Or is it one you bought separetly of a different brand?

Yeah I'm using a 1 spot power supply with a 1 spot daisy chain.

make a test try: try not using any adaptors at all, only batteries...if it works without buzzing, your adaptor/s are defaulty

its probably got to do with electricity supply anyway,different wall voltage etc...dont bother trying different cables, pedals, amps or guitars

Ok... I tried using batteries and the ibanez was a success, but the battery thing on the tu2 was messed up. I'm assuming its the same problem with that though.

SOOOooo... on the back of the Ibanez wah it says to use an Ibanez AC109 or 309 or 509.
The boss has a little table like this...

AC Voltage | Boss AC Adaptor
100 V | PSA-100 (DC 9 V)
117 V | PSA -120 (DC 9 V)
230 V | PSA- 230 (DC 9 V)
240 V | PSA-240 (DC 9 V)

Does that mean that there are no power supplies that are right for both?

mmm im not sure man, sometimes you can find a adaptor that works for both, check the specs of the ibanez wah adaptors and the boss adaptors and try to find some common setting or sommin. I bought a big adaptor with 10 outputs for about 50€ and it worked...but I would check with your local guitar shop, and get someone who knows about this stuff, most shops dont even realize you cant use certain adaptors...good luck man!

Alright, thanks for the advice.

Man... I wish I wasn't such a noob when I bought this stuff
