buzz and hiss

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by lowlambo, Sep 2, 2002.

  1. My Ampeg 1x15 is buzzing like a mad hornet...
    Is it the shielding on the bass or the cabinet itself?
    My tone has been killed due to turning down the highs.

    Help me Amp Guru...

    could be the outlet its plugged into, could be the ground on the amp itself, is there a ground lift? bad cables, could be the horn/tweeter/coax. blown out (if there is one), has this just started? does it change at all?
  3. It has just recently started, my house was hit by lightning a few months ago....maybe related...

    I'm not up on ground lifts. what is it?

    thanks for your help
