Micro dark + ppc112 buzzing on low strings when clean

Post by Antlefty » Fri Apr 07, 2017 9:20 pm

Hello all!

I purchased a micro dark and ppc112 for home practice / recording. Love the set up and the tones. However, when I play any low notes I get the note from the speaker and then a slight buzz (kind of like a vibration through the amp itself).

I figured it was the cab so I exchanged it for a new one, and same issue. Again, only clean and only if I am playing lower notes on the fret board.

Tried it with 2 guitars, both active humbucker pickups. When the gain is up the amp sounds amazing, but almost useless for playing clean.

however - when I turn the volume up and the shape to the left the issue most virtually disappears but at some points noticeable.

What could be the problem? Could it be the micro dark? Could it be the active pickups? Anyone else have this issue? Using brand new speaker and instrument cables and new strings, batteries on the guitar.

Tunings I play are standard E, drop D, drop C# and drop C. It happens more when I am D and below.

Thanks for your assistance!!
