    I did some cleaning in the heads on both my amps. My Hartke 1400 and the Peavey. The Hartke sounded great after the cleaning. The peavey had some improvement, but the tone would still clip out in static and i get a classic hum until I touch the strings. I've seen some folks mention contact cleaner, does anyone think that could be the problem?

    I've also seen lots of threads about shielding, any thoughts on that being able to fix things?

    The only thing that pulls me away from thinking about the bass being the culprit is the fact that the Hartke doesn't make any noises and the Peavey does.....
