Spider IV 75 Buzzing
by pantosh on 2011-12-12 19:32:40.2380

I posted this before, but cannot find that post.  Attached is what the buzzing sounds like.

Amp bought new from Daddy's in NH in October 2011.  Help please.

I've done the "reset" trick, but nothing works.  New guitar works perfectly on other amp.  New cable and changed power outlets several times.

What you'll hear on the attached MP3 is the buzzing, followed by the buzzing with a guitar strum, and then buzzing when thumping the guitar strings with my whole hand.  Yeah, I just kinda tried everything.

OOPS!  Even though the attachment is .MP3, your system is telling me "The content type of this attachment is not allowed."  So I guess I won't attach it.

Not having fun right now.

Here's the link to Youtube where you can enjoy the buzzing.

That's the buzz of a bad ground.  When you touch the strings you are providing a grounding circuit (you!)

1) Try plugging into a different wall outlet (not the same circuit breaker).

2) Try a different guitar and cable.

Sorry that you bought from a place that's closed so can't take it back for service to the same spot.  I got my Spider at GC, but used to use Daddy's for repairs.

If fflbrgst's suggestions don't work, a technician at an authorized service center can diagnose and repair this issue. They can be found at It has a one year warranty; you'd provide a copy of your receipt to the service center for warranty service.

If they do work, please give him points.
