Topic: Amplifier Noise?
My Peavey has developed some noise that I'm not sure about, so hopefully someone can provide a suggestion as to where I might start looking. First of all, it has nothing to do with guitars or effects gear, because it make the same sounds with everything unplugged.
It's a bit of an intermittent snowy sound, similar to dirty guitar pot when it's being turned, or a cord starting to go bad. I'd thought about uncapping all the switches and giving them a shot of DeoxIT to start with, and then going deeper until the noise is gone. Any other suggestions about what I could be looking for? A trip to the shop is likely in order, but if it's an easier "home fix" I'd like to try that first.
Many thanks in advance!
