    When I hooked up my newly aquired Sabine tuner to my amp, I started to get a radio signal coming through my cab. It only happens when I am running my guitar into my tuner, and then connect the tuner's amp out to the insturment input on my amp. Could this be caused from not using shielded cables? I don't know if one of them is shielded or not, because it is just some random small cable that was left at a show that I picked up. Any ideas as to what I can do to get rid of this are welcome. Thanks and God bless.

    Yes, you should use shielded cables that are in good condition.

    You could probably drive the input of the tuner with the line output of the Behringer head, but you wouldn't get a mute function (if you have one now).

    Sounds like either a shielding or a grounding problem somewhere.

    yeah, i want to be able to use the mute. I'll pick up some new cables tomorrow. Thanks and God bless.
