How do I get rid of the amp buzz that comes from the really low notes I play? Attached is the sound sample.

Sounds like the amp is trying to output too much bass and it ends up not handling the lower frequencies correctly.
What happens if you turn down the bass or gain on the amp?

What kind of amp is it btw? and do you have any effects connected to it?

I turned down the bass, but it's still producing that sound. I'm using two amps: Ibanez GTA15R and Vox VT 30. They are both doing that buzz. Could it be my Boss Me 20 pedal?

It's probably the ME-20 doing it.
I'm not that familiar with the settings on the ME20, but if i had the master/patch-volume on my GT-8 set too high, it would do something similar to the sound.

Might be a combination of too high patchvolume and mastervolume on the me20 making it clip.

I think I found the problem. I turned down the Low in the EQ and it went away. I'm having to adjust the tone level to get the deep bass sound back. Or maybe my amp will do that. 'Anyways, thanks Trond! It had always been a puzzle before. smile.gif

Try setting ME20 on less bass eq...Also try adding some mids to the sound. Guitar should not sound too boomy, that space is reserved for bass guitar.
