hi---I love my new T1---after 5 or 6 gigs with it,I'm noticing a lot of buzz from my strat pickups(this is typical of single -coil pickups,but it is really noticeable going directly into the T1/L1)...Im sure this could be softened,or eliminated by using the Para EQ on the T1 ..but Im not sure how to proceed...any help would be appreciated!

Hey JR,

Did the noise gate work for you?

I hadn't actually tried it, so after that last post, I went into the other room and pulled out a Strat. The default settings seem to work okay for me.

I played around with it a bit, and found that -68.0dB seemed a little better, but I didn't spend a lot of time with it.

I don't typically get a lot of pickup noise unless I'm running into a hot preamp like the Boogie V-Twin.

Did you come up with any settings that worked well for you?

What's in your rig?
havent had a chance to tweak...got a gig tomorrow..so I'll try the gate before showtime...I'm just using a Strat through a Pod,using the Pod preset on the T1--there is a noise gate on the Pod ,which I never liked,so i will try the noise gate on the T1 tomorrow...thanks.......
Hi MikeZ,

if the noise gate doesn't do it for you, I can certainly point in the direction of how to quiet that strat down if you are handy.

they can be tamed easily :-) a properly shielded and grounded strat is as quiet as a Les Paul.


If you have a little time to point the way, that would be great.


Here's the site:


Great, great pictorial on how to shield a strat-type guitar. You need to be up for some soldering though - and not be afraid to mess with electronics. Of course the shielding principles apply to any electric guitar.

The rest of that site also has some good tips for general guitar wiring issues.

For the actual shielding need foil. Cheap way is to use heavy duty Al foil and some Super 77 spray adhesive, more expensive ($20) way is to buy copper shielding tape from a guitar parts supplier like Warmoth.
