Hello folks,

Just a question about interference, I know it happens, I know why kind of but why does it happen like this in the file below. It's hardly there until the string is creating sound then it increases. I used to get it on a Roland Cube amp too. I'm just wondering what is happening electronically. Why does it increase when the string is hit? It's a single coil by the way wink.gif

Single coils are noisy. Unless they are the noiseless variety smile.gif They can generate a bit of buzz. If a noise gate is active you won't hear it until the noise level gets above the gate threshold. If not gate is involved, the noise floor is being raise when the string is struck. With just a pinch of gain, the noise can be made worse. Quick fix is a well tuned noise gate, or using noiseless singles. I'm sure there are other ways too

Thanks folks,
I wasn't after a fix, I just wanted to know why it happens.why it gets louder when the string is vibrating.

Cheers

Phil

No idea why or what that type of noise is but I had a similar issue with a particular 9v. power supply. It was a 'switching' digital type like a 1-spot or switch-mode power supply.

Boring and technical but informative ... https://www.electronics-notes.com/articles/...ower-supply.php

Thanks Ken,

This was a Brunetti preset from TH-U with my MiM HSH Strat on the middle pickup. I you have TH-U (I know Todd does) it's the TH-O Brunetti Collection (Bank 30) and Pro Drivers Dark Blue (Preset 8). I'd like to hear it on someone else's single coil.

Also regarding noiseless single coils, aren't they just a stacked humbucker?

Cheers

Phil
