Strange Buzzing Sound

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Tom Neves, Feb 5, 2005.


  1. Last night while practicing in my home studio I encountered a strange buzzing sound intermitently coming from my Shroeder 1210 and from, (when switched) my JBL homemade cab.
    I quickly checked all the connections, everything was tight and working properly.
    I run an EBS Multi-Comp along with a Sansamp Bass DI playing thru a WW Ultra High Power.
    I shut off the effects and re-EQed the WW, then it all mysteriously dissapeared????
    After engaging the effects again, I could not get the buzzing to occur again?
    Let me add that the buzzing was immediate when I struck the strings on the bass.
    Anyone experienced this before? :eyebrow:

    check the batteries in your effects, or if you are running power supplies one of them may have problems so try running batteries for a bit to isolate the problem. cables are also a likely culprit so check them too.
     
  3. Yea,
    I forgot to mention I have AC adapters for both the effects.

    Sounds like a bad effects cable.

    That type of problem can be sporadic.
