RE: [OT] Noise interference problem

Any active circuitry in the guitar? Shielding paint, foil with double
sided tape are just a couple of ideas. 


a great source for all you DIY types.

Hello Jim,
I am using a NAD 3020 hi-fi amp and a pair of Event 20/20 as studio 
monitoring. I use the Roland GP-100 amp simulations, or none, going out 
of the Rane SM82 which is the final output of my guitar rig (2xEDPs, 
Roland GI-20 & SE-50).
Signal is very clear on this system, the click appears only when I plug 
a guitar (volume turned up) on any component: GP-100, mixer or my audio 
card -a Metric Halo ULN-2- going directly to the stereo. This didn't 
happen when I was living in NYC, or anywhere I performed. It seems the 
guitar is acting as an antenna and amplifying some interference, but I 
can't locate it. Someone suggested using DI boxes. Any thought?
