not sure either guitar or amp makes humming noise
today while playing my guitar, when i play in clean mode i seem to get a hum from the amp. if i move to different parts of the room the noise will stop, but not many spots in the room make it quite, i tried the amp in differnet rooms same thing depends were i stand with the guitar, i have a jackson DK2 1 hum and 2 singles, it gets louder as i switch to the singles, if i am on the humbucker its there but not as loud, i have tried other guitars on it and it does the same thing but not as bad, the DK2 is the worse and not sure if its the amp or maybe the wireng in the DK2 or maybe the pickups ...
the other guitar i tried is a OLP MM1 and its not as bad like i say not the noticable, but i figure the dk2 has a more powerfull pickup and thats why its more noticeable with that then the olp...
should i return the amp and get a different amp like a microcube.. or is it the guitar???
thanks for any help..... and info... rather it be the amp..... then the guitar...
like i say the humbucker seems ok no hum from it, sometimes i do but not much but once i switch to the single coils thats when i notice the hum in clean or distortion, and if amp is loud enough i can hear the hum while playing too.....
as long is aint the pups i can always return the amp for maybe a better amp, or just deal with the hum...
i thought maybe its just the amp giving the hum.. but when guitar aint pluged in i get no hum..
my amp is a fender bullet 150,
