Variax 700 Whistling

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


Im currently enjoying my HD500 and DT25 very much and have been given an opportunity to buy a second hand 700 from a friend.  Ive noticed that when you play, there is a definite whistling in the background, which obviously becomes more obvious at higher volumes.  I have reinstalled the firmware, which hasn't cured it.  I have also played direct to amp which again has made no difference.  I have also tried making adjustments to the controls on the workbench, but again no difference.


Is this whistling a normal thing with the 700 or is it indicating there is a fault somewhere ?  Is it a known fault and is it repairable ?  I haven't paid for the 700 yet as I am just trying it out, but if the problem is repairable relatively cheaply then there isn't a problem as I love the guitar.


Any advice would be most welcome.
