    Hi. I picked up a GK rig on craigslist, RB800 plus a 2x10 and 1x15 cab. Sounds great, mostly, but I notice a lot of buzzing at certain notes, and a scratchy crackly noise that is mixed in with low notes.

    My SWR Workingman12 doesn't have this problem.

    Did I buy a lemon? Is this something I can get fixed without taking out a loan?

    Sounds like you should be looking at the cabs and cables, I don't think it's a head problem.
