    Hum on "new" Charvel. What to check?

    I got one of those Danhage sigs a while ago. The construction and feel on this thing was nice out of the box but the setup left a lot to be desired. I am a tinkerer so I didn't really worry and changed it to my liking. It took a little more than my other guitars but it's playing great now. I...

    KM-7 MK-III Owners: How much single coil noise is typical or expected?

    From my understanding, the pickup voicing mini toggle is as follows: - Down: PAF - Middle: KM Custom - Up: Single Coil The first two voicings do not produce any hum, but the single coil one does. I am aware that single coil hum is not uncommon and that EMI for each environment, cable type...

    So, I recently bought a PRS MT 15 w/ a PRS Stealth 2x12 (UK V30 and Hellatone 25 instead of stock speakers)...it sounds amazing. However, I noticed that I get a slight hum/white noise when I use the FX loop. I've seen other posts about this before as well. So, it seems to be somewhat of a...

    Any Digitech Whammy Ricochet pedal owner here?

    Hi! I bought a Whammy Ricochet pedal. It works very well if you don't use any distortion/fuzz/preamp/eq pedals after it. Once you turn any of them on Ricochet starts to produce a constant hum. It's like Ricochet alone produces inaudiable constant hum, and once you get any other pedal turned on...

    Decimator vs NS2?

    It seems that most people prefer the decimator vs the ns2.. just wondering why. What can the decimator do that the ns2 can't, or vice versa? A noise gate/suppressor should have the same flaw as all the rest right? I mean it just cuts the sustain off at a certain point depending on the threshold...

    Loud hum from SKB Stage five when Digitech Whammy plugged in

    Hey guys I have a quick question about the Digitech Whammy 4 and its compatibility with the SKB Stage 5 pedal board. So after reading that the Digitech whammy pedal power supply is a 9 Volt 1.3 amp, I naturally plugged my new pedal into the RED 9 VAC 1.3 amp power supply section of my...

    Hum after pickup swap (RGD)

    Hi, after swapping the PUs of my RGD7421 and changing the volume pot to a push/pull type for coil split I've noticed a gentle hum when I'm not touching the guitar (strings, bridge etc). This is independent of the switches' position. The only thing which I could think of causing this is 2...

    Peavey 5150 hum problem

    Hey guys, Since today, I noticed my 5150 makes a annoying hum-sound which I've never noticed before. I bought a second-hand NS2 today and as soon as I got home, I plugged it in my amp, turned my amp on and started playing. I noticed the hum-sound immediately. The strange thing is that I never...

I took it to a tech who said I had done an okay wiring job and I played it there and sounded fine. Once I got home, I started messing with the volume and tone knobs because I...
