GK MB 115 II hissing horn?
So I have been thru allot lately with combo amps. I picked up a MB115 last night when the TC BG250 I jsut bought had issues and I returned it. I thought the GK was too hi-fi in the store when I played it (older model) so I thought why not and bought it to try with my P bass and flats at practice. I was amazed when I dialed in a fat, warm, clear tone in seconds..happy!
The drummers basement is crappy and the wiring is suspect but the horn had to be turned off. I also got a pop (static) anytime I touched the strings or bridge and the horn sounded like a box of bees... but the tone was great.
I got home late and tried it in my basement music room (better wiring) and it was much better. There was no popping like before and it was allot more quiet but there still is a ground issue when I have the horn on and take my hands off the string. It is not horrible but my Markbass and Fender combo are dead quiet with my basses in the same room.
The horn is hissssss? Any one have this problem? I should tell you I play with the horn off 90% of the time but after what I have been thru with combo's lately I want to hear what others who own this amp say .Should I have GC order me another..confused.
Peace, Love and Music
