View Full Version : certain notes make my amp 'buzz'
05-08-2004, 08:14 PM
is this normal?
do i have my amp positioned wrong or something?
i have it set on a small book case.
one of the notes that makes it buzz specifically is the E on the A string.
but that probably doesnt matter.
should i just move my amp or what?

assuming it definitely isn't fret buzz, it could very well be some sort of earthing issue.
try setting your amp on the floor instead. that could help earthing and might reduce buzzing.
I'm pretty confused though - if it were an earthing problem then any buzz would be more noticeable with open strings rather than fretted notes. try moving your amp anyway - it could work.
try out a different instrument cable as well. the one you're using might be knackered.

yeah it's not fret buzz for sure.
their flatwound strings and i moved my finger everywhere on that fret and it still buzzes.
but i moved my amp of the little book shelf (it looks small now :embarrased: ) but i think that may help it.
as i was testing it out i noticed that it only buzzed when i plucked or picked it hard. but when i did it softer it didnt buzz. idk maybe its just a loose nut or something but thanks for the advice
Ya, it's probably a loose part.
