gitapik Posted September 16, 2021 Share Posted September 16, 2021 Hi. I did a search on this issue and only found posts about background hiss when not playing. That's why I added the caps in the title. I'm noticing a background hiss both through headphones and when playing through amps, but only when I pluck the string. When the note is dead or blunted; there's no background hiss. This is particularly evident with single pickups (standard and silent). Gets less so in the out of phase positions and even less so with humbuckers. But it's always there, all the same. I first noticed it on headphones in my practice space, upstairs. So I plugged the Stomp into a Quilter Mach 2 Pro amp in the same space and had the same issue. Moved downstairs to my main setup. Used a different outlet for the power and noticed it straight away through phones out of the Stomp (not connected to an amp). Plugged it into the UA OX that's connected to my Port City Pearl head. Same issue on both phones and into the amp. I used three different guitars. All had similar issues, though the one with the Barden Gatton pickups (humbuckers) was less so than the other two. I also tried different patches. Cabs and amps with and without effects and just effects. And no effects...totally clean. All with the same result. And, of course, the issue is more noticeable as you crank it up. I don't notice this issue when playing through any of my boards (which have no multi-effects or modeling units) or straight into the amps. Either on headphones or not. Thanks in advance for any tips/support. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
