I finally got a new amp. But When i hook my crybaby through the fx loop, it picks up the local country radio station.
Wtf?

It means either ur amp or your instrument cable isnt grounded. so try a new cable and see if it helps. haha but i think it would be cool to play some Hendrix and then listen to the radio haha.

its acctually probably both, and the louder you go the worse it gets, i think you can buy a frequncy changer or blocker thingy but idk, however lower the gain it should go away. Especially try that, also will make you a better player, this is a case where more is not better. More gain will promote sloppyness, noise, and less control(opinion alert) so just ease up on the gain and volume maybe.

Howqeverif youre using cheap cables that could be it, or make sure youre going into a grounded outlet... if youre not you can damage your amp too....

EXACTLY!!!! It's not just your opinion, it's the truth man... I honestly haven't seen a young and new musician who plays with distortion and sound just as "good" when they're in the clean setting. They have no idea how many mistakes they're making!

That's why I always think it's best to play with the clean setting during practice!

Its not the gain, it happens on clean/low gain too.
It is grounded.
Cables are Live wire.

Its very low, and gets drowned out easily, so it doesnt bother me. It just surprised me when i killswitched and someone started singing.

I was about to say, what about Dime? haha I like to use a lot of gain since I like a nice fuzzy/hairy distorted sound. A bit off topic but anyways...

I had a problem like this with a few things, one was a cable that wasn't properly functioning and the other was this little RP90 I had for a while, they both picked up ESPN Omaha haha
Only good thing about that was after jamming I could stop and catch up on the college scores xD

yeah then its the frequency probably, if theres something as a frequency blocker or something id get it...

Well Dime is an insanely amazing player. Im saying many many players (mostly kids, not stereyotyping for i am one and i was guilty of it at one time) use more and more gain because they think it sounds good, all it does it make you sound better but not make you better...

I almost always practice clean or only slightly distorted. and i have certain distortion boxes that are very responsive and low gain. honestly now i dont play much high gain stuff and its made me such a better player.
