SVT-CL Head Buzzing

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by JHorstmann, Oct 8, 2009.

  1. The oddest thing... I was playing at my college for a PG service last night, used the XLR out to go into the sytem, had a nasty nasty buzz. Switched to using a DI straight from my bass with a bypass to the amp, no buzz...

    Something I'm missing?

    did you try lifting the ground?
  3. Well, every so often in a person's life, you have a moment completely idiotic.

    Thank you very very much.

    There is no ground lift built into the SVT-CL head - the DI is transformer isolated and should not require it. However, there are small external devices that will lift the ground or you can modify the cable. Can't hurt to at least try and see if that fixes the buzz.
