"Ghost" tone when using one amp


Recommended Posts

I’m using a HD500x with a JTV-59. Both inputs are set to Variax.


Has anyone noticed something similar to this:


Using a patch with dual amps. Uncheck the button for either amp or even set one of the amps to “---“ so there is one active amp and the other amp is off/bypassed. Can anyone detect an underlying dull tone being played along with the amp still in use's tone? Almost sounds as if you have a dull Reso guitar being played quietly as well as whatever else you actually have dialled in.


As soon as I activate a second amp that dull ghost tone goes away. 


Just in case anyone suggests it: No, I don't think its coming from the magnetic pickups.
