Buzzing on stomp box effects

Recommended Posts

When I use the stomp box effects for the Amplifi or turn up the volume past 50%, I get a noticeable hum.  I can use the smart gate, but I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue.  Thanks.

This sounds like it might be your guitar that's producing this noise - perhaps a grounding issue?

If you touch the strings/metal parts of the guitar does the noise stop or get quieter?

 

I have found that with most guitars I have to use a noise gate to some extent with stomp box/overdrive type effects as they just amplify the effect of any grounding/noisy guitar issues. There are ways to fix this of course, but often a noise gate is the easiest solution.
