I bought a Spider V 60 about 5 months ago. Iâ€™ve just started to notice that Iâ€™m getting significant distortion with every preset in the amp. This is incredibly frustrating when I just want a clean tone. Iâ€™ve tried a factory reset but it hasnâ€™t cleaned it up. Any ideas? Thanks
Iâ€™ve tried multiple different amp types. I have turned off all distortion in the presets (though the clean presets come with no distortion included). I have tried reducing the â€œdriveâ€ to near zero while increasing volume. Nonetheless the distortion is present at all times. I would have thought if it was an issue with my settings, the multiple factory resets would have reset that to a true clean sound on those kind of presets.
Iâ€™m playing a Gibson Les Paul and have a FBV Shortboard MKII hooked up. Iâ€™ve tried with different cables with no difference. Iâ€™ve tried playing my guitar with another amp and the distortion is not present. Iâ€™ve basically gone through the pre-loaded effects and gotten distortion on each one (eg Silky Deluxe, Jazz Clean, Rock Clean, Blues Clean, which should all be distortion free)
