some guitars dont sound good?

Post by willyjacksonjs22-7 » Tue Jul 16, 2019 2:13 am

Has anybody notice that some guitars are noisy, muddy or the notes to sound clear ( feedback noise) when having the red channel on max or little lower? i have 3 guitars and 2 are giving me issues. i lowered the gain to 1pm and it clears up, but i lose that tight tone. i also notice that those two guitars come with high output pickups. also notice if you dont touch the strings they produce this feedback noise like beeeee or something lol

Guitar "SET UP" is extremely important.

PUP'S must be at right height.

Strings must be at right height.

Intonation must be set.

Have your guitar ready, willing, and able.

"red channel on max..." High output pickups dont like this, and higher gain the amp models amplify the buzz and noise inherent in any pickup to a greater degree than a twin or bcat. Back off on the gain and see if you cant solve the noise issues, or at least make it manageable. Try the compressor, that might help too.
ANY single coil guitar will buzz like shit on high gain amp models with gain cranked.

yeah i back off the gain, and the tight tone is gone. ive seen youtube videos where the red channel is on max and it sounds super clean.
funny thing when i try plugins, all my guitars sound fine.

You did not mention the brands and styles of guitars you own.

Also, did not mention the make and model PUP'S....! * ! * !

my Vypyr Pro doesn't like hot pickups. EVH Wolfgang pickup works well with it, though ...

I have a fender strat hss, a Jackson 7 string and a sg copy.

Both strat and sg have a higher output humbucker then the Jackson.

I don’t have active pickups but 2 guitars I have there output is higher then my 7 string Jackson. To bad I can’t use the noise gate on my vip 3 :( I played a real 6505 but the mini head version and I wasn’t getting any noise problems. Btw I just ordered one.
