Hi, I'm not really sure if this is the right forum, as my problem seems to be more electronics related. Thing is, I used to believe my cable had gone bad, as my Status Energy, which I bought used last year often sent crackling noises out of my speakers when I was walking around while playing or moved my instrument cable in any way. I replaced the cable, but the crackling noise was still there. Just for kicks, I just plugged in my old Ibanez ATK (now defretted) and guess what: no crackle whatsoever. What do you think could be wrong? Could it be the jack? I had to replace my ATK's input jack a few years ago as it simply stopped working, but as far as I know, ATKs are notorious for having crappy jacks. What do you think? Lots of thanks in advance.
