FDP Forum / Fender Amps: 1985 - Current / Issue with SuperChamp X2 with SC112 cabinet

I think there is something wrong with this amp/speaker. I bought it used, the tubes are stock. When I play the D#,D or E# on the 6th string I get this nasty sounding buzz, I get the same sound when playing an open D on the 4th string. I don't think it's a string buzz. I also have a BlackHeart BH5 Little Giant Head that I connected to the SC112 cabinet and get the same result. The guitar is an EPI LP Special Vintage Edition. A cheap guitar but I have basically rebuilt it.

I have a BlackHeart cabinet coming sometime this week and will connect it to the Little Giant. If the result is the same nasty sound the guitar is the problem, if not is the speaker blown on the SC112 cab or ????

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Tony

If the problem persists with a new cabinet, it might be the guitar (or just need new strings).

I'd be swapping and trying a ton of different things - including recording the guitar without an amp and see if those notes have an issue straight to the board.

well this is weird. I removed the grill off the sc112 just to look at the speaker and check it was tight. It wasn't but I found the USB cable in there to use with FUSE that was bouncing around between the grill and speaker. What a strange place to put a cable! The nasty sound is gone...
Thanks for the reply reverend rob

I wonder if the previous owner(s) sold it because of that noise and didn't bother to take the grill off?
