    Hi, everyone, I'm a new guy here, and sorry if this has been posted before, i really tried looking for something like that...
    My problem is that I have an active Ibanez GSR205 and Ibanez SW65 amp (I am a beginner) and today, somehow when I turned everything on, i got this terrible thumping noise, like someone would bash a mic to his hand (or something like that, I am not that good at english). I turned it of, and when iI turned everything on again, i got this strange noise and a bit of distortion. I had this distortion once but it somehow disappear. So, can it be that my battery is messed up? I would be very thankful for any help I can get and sorry if my description is muddled, I am not an English speaker :meh:

    Why don't you change the battery, and then ask for help? It very well may fix your problem.

    "Thumping" sounds like it might be a jack thing to me.

    That would be my guess too.
