Ok so I myself have expierienced some wierd feedback issues with my amp...

I've managed to pick up radio stations before.

If my cell phone is in the immediate area, the amp clicks and beeps if I am about to get an incoming text message or phone call, but most times it just clicks for no reason, if my phone is in the area. any way...

I have noticed that, right now, as I scroll through the page of any website, while I am scrolling I here I different buzzing sound out of my amp... It's faint... but it's definitely there....

That is insane...

Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.

Lol the radio stations are great. Me and my friend were playing in my office once and there was some gospel music coming through the amp and we were like "WTF is that," so we turned the guitar off, and it took us like forever to figure out what the hell was going on.

I've had the cellphone phenomenon happen to me quite often. Not open conversations though, but my speakers go nuts if a cellphone rings or gets a message.

Used to get radio-signals when i had my old Squier 15 watt amp, but never happened on any of my bigger amps.

Once I could listen to a conversation. I don´t know who talked there, maybe the police or maybe our neighbours. tongue.gif I often have some noises coming out of the amp when I sit in front of the computer. The cell phone phenomen is also here. biggrin.gif

Do you have a wireless mouse ? Also I can hear noises coming out of my pc speakers when line in input isn't muted! But no such problems with amp ?
