MXR micro amp generates white noise?

    I've only had it a couple of weeks but i've been noticing that when I use it for a clean boost it generates a bit of white noise. Today I tested it by taking it all the way up and it was quite a lot of noise. At normal levels it's decent enough though.

    So my question is, is mine a dud or is this a regular thing?

    I'm having the same problem, maybe even worst. Not sure if it's normal or not. When I turn mine up past 12:00m, like around 1:00 it makes a 60 cycle type him/buzz. Nothing I do stops it. Touching strings, nothing. If I turn the tone on the bass down, it gets quieter, but it's still there.

    I've tried this on two different basses that don't have any grounding issues.

    Under the 12:00 mark, I don't hear any noise.
