No absolutly not!
The normal thing is to hear them in your teeths fillings.

I just realized what's happening to Andrew and his amp building journey.
He hear the voices from the amps too and they have promized him a light saber if he follows the blueprints they sent him and builds the "mother of all amplifiers". Watch out mattacuk!

I remember quite awhile back I was round at my mates and he was having abit of a jam and when he plugged one of his pedals in (dont remember what it was) we could hear abit of a whisper from the radio. We wernt really sure what to think at 1st as we were all pretty baked.

Seriously, I get that on my Xbox when I run XBMC. Or more likely it's the sound from a TV-channel.

Absolutely, the voices come from the fish blink.gif hehe, but on a more serious note, its looking more like a few GMC'ers experience this phenomina, i think we should call Mulder and Scully (actually you can ditch Mulder wink.gif )

Does happen - used to play with a guy and his amp would pick up passing taxi drivers messages to base camp blink.gif . Was a bit embarrasing when we were gigging once and in a quiet emotive bit of a song everyone heard loud and clear, 'Roger that pick up control. Just dropping off on Paradise Street then will go.' rolleyes.gif .

Shielding though should help sort it out. Another possibility - harder to sort - is if the tube/s are microphonic, that may need a tech to look at.

Cheers,
Tony

I also heard radio, but it was no tube amp tongue.gif
Just a normal practice amp. It was weird, when I suddelny heard voices and I didnt where they came from I got a bit scared until I realised that the radio is coming out of the amp^^
It was some czech or russian radio (I live in Germany) oO
