    I have an ampeg b2re head and a ampeg 410 cab.

    My problem is that i get this horrible clicking noise when i'm not going through with my distorition. I took it to the music shop and just got it re set up however whenever i play harder then an exremely light stroke i get that stupid clicking sound. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like clipping. Your head just doesn't have enough watts to handle playing that loud cleanly.

    i was just at my friends house and his amp was making some odd click noises too.

    problem was a dead battery in his guitar. maybe that helps??
  4. What kind of ampeg 4x10 are you running? What were your amp settings at when you heard the clipping?

    i'm using the Ampeg BSE-410HLF cab. It basically continually clicks no matter what setting the amp is on and i've been trying to fix this situation for over 2 months. continuiously trying new things to cure it.
