Crackle from podX3


Recommended Posts

When I put my pod x3 into the front end of an amp, it's fine at first , then after a while it starts to give out a crackle, which is intermittent, but can be quite loud while its doing it.

I know the pod is causing the issue because

- unplugging the guitar has no effect

-I've changed all the cables

- I've tried it with another amp, still the same

- there's no other electrical equipment on anywhere near to cause interference, and I've even tried it at someone else's house still the same


Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Just guessing on this... with the unit powered off: Spray some DeOxit (or other contact cleaner) on a 1/4" jack and do the in/out a few times on the jacks. Sometimes the jacks get a little oxidized.


Only reason I mention this is a few amps I've had needed this treatment.


Another thing to try would be the "turn the knobs all the way c-wise abunch of times and then do it ccw". That would be for the pots as a just in case. But it really doesn't sound like the typical "pot jitter".
