G'day guys, my amp has developed a buzzing sound when I don't touch my strings, when I touch the strings the buzzing stops, I don't think this has done this b4......... I have done no work on the guitar or the amp recently, the problem has just kinda developed overnight..... I think. Do you reckon I should change out my tubes? If so which ones, power, pre-amp or rectifier?

I have recently made up a box with an attenuator that I put in series after the amp and be4 the speaker cab, this works awesome so I can thrash out my tubes whilst baby sleeps in the next room, maybe this has thrashed out the 6v6gt power tubes and now they are knackered? The amp was second hand btw.

Apart from that everything works well still.

Any feedback (no pun) would be appreciated. Cheers, Adam.

If it stops when you touch the strings, it's not the amp, it's the guitar.  May be a shielding issue, or perhaps a new source of interference. 

But just to double check, do you have a different guitar to try with the amp?

Yeah it happens with all my guitars, and different leads. Good news thou, I took the setup to my mates house on Thursday and it didn't do it there, so its definately not the amp, its not the guitars so the problem must lie with interference within my house.......... It all happened after an earthquake ay...............

Hi,

Could just be some electrical appliances? Was something recently installed at your place?

Thanks!

maybe the ground connection into your house is broken!!!!!
usually, quietening the humming strings by touching them means they are not earthed

I'd get your earthing checked very soon!!

I wonder if the OP ever figured this out, it was over a year and 1/2 ago since he posted. Amazing that spammers actually dig up old posts  Huh?
