I'll try to explain what i mean.

Whenever i play a note(it's much more noticeable on power chords and notes on the heavier strings), and let it ring out, i get this flux that makes the sound go sort of...back and forth, so to speak.

I was wondering if there was a way of getting rid of this. I'm assuming it has something to do with my EQ settings on my amp?(it's the cube, btw).

Settings:
Bass: about 8 o'clock
Mid: 12 o'clock
Treble: 8 o'clock

Thanks for any help.

Are you in tune? I know it sounds silly but when different harmonies are played, like a D and a slightly flatter D, you can get an oscillation sound. Check out your intonation.

Check out your intonation and make sure your tuning is spot on. Also, make sure your pickups (if passive high gain pickups) aren't too close to the bottom strings. The pickups can pull on the heavier strings and cause exactly the sound you described.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

i always thought that sounded badass- it does depend how noticeable it is, i guess. i only notice it on long, decaying power chords... if you can hear it nomatter what you're playing, maybe there's something wrong...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

That's dissonance oscillation. You need to have your guitar more in tune. If it is perfectly in tune, try not to push too hardor bend the strings when playing chords.

yeah, if it's really obvious you probably just aren't in tune

I've found that really old strings seem to have that effect

Ahh. My low E was out of tune. I tuned it by ear after going into drop d.

I feel like a dumbass for not checking. Thanks guys.

That's just feedback, which is always good, assuming it's controllable, and doesn't start going nuts while you're playing.

ah, cheers.
