Hey all short time reader first time poster!
Just want to say I am so glad there are these forums for us to discuss our Spider IV and Line 6 stuff, I have already read through 5 pages of these forums and am very greatful for the mature responses from some of the posters, as well as the good information that I have already come upon regarding my Line 6 Head.
So now onto my problem...
I am quite an experienced guitar player, not so much experienced with effects. Wanted an all-in-1 that I could "grow" with, so I decided to buy a brand new Spider IV HD 150 last week with the FBV shortboard and I love almost everything about it. My head has only been sitting in my room and hasn't been moved at all since I took it out of the box. While playing riffs/songs with the presets like Aracnaphobia/Black/Buttah I have noticed quite an annoying hum/echo noise through my cab or headphones right after I come to a stop and palm mute my strings. It happens with both of my guitars so I'm certain it has to be the head.
The only way I can describe the sound is an electrical feedback "echo" that has a "frequency" or "not properly grounded" noise from the head when right when I stop strumming and try to go to complete silence. Even if I, say, hit one chord real quick and then mute the strings, the feedback echo happens. This is with all the preset settings, I haven't touched any of the other stuff. I am kind of a audiophile, which is why I bought this head in the firstplace, so it's super annoying to hear, and its actually quite noticeable with the volume 1/4 of the way up.
So when I come to a stop, the guitar and effects will silence, but then a split second after the head makes this electrical hum noise, almost like a "up and down" or a "feedback fixer" kind of faint echo noise for 1 second. The noise sounds nothing like the notes or tones of the guitar. After the second of echo it does go silent, but that doesn't work for me. When I stop playing I don't want anymore noise!
I'm just annoyed (1) because I just bought this and can't believe this would be something standard on this head and (2) because I intended to record with this head and can't have this noise recording every single time there is a break of silence in the riff, or if the song is over and I need it to be completely quiet.
Thanks in advance for reading my post, and any response or advice or settings adjustments suggestions I might want to take into account or consider are greatly appreciated! I apologize for the somewhat lengthy post, but wanted to be descriptive as possible in explaining my issue in hopes someone would understand and/or recognize the issue that I'm talking about.
Anyway I do like a lot of things about this head and hope this problem can be fixed so I can continue guitaring happily while keeping this head!
