I feel I have significant noise issues (have mentioned it several times before!) although I'm led to believe it may be more to do with my lack tolerance of said noise. Mrs reckons I have some very form of misophonia as certain frequencies of noise do bother me, I jump out of my skin at the kitchen cupboard doors closing even when I myself have closed them!
However, back to the noise. Has happened in two separate houses with various guitars, pickups, amps and pedals etc. There are only two ways I've found to remove it - a Variax guitar, and an old cheap Audio Technica (i think, will check later) wireless system thing. It's quite old so I don't think it's of the same type of thing as the Line 6 or Smooth Hound type products, radio frequency maybe rather than digital? Who knows.
I believed the reason this worked was because of isolating the ground from the instrument. However an Orchid Effects ground isolator (and a crappy Behringer one) do not work the same. With those, the noise reduces when I don't touch the strings, but is worse when I do touch them which is odd.
So does anybody know why the wireless works for this but other ground isolating things do not? If I were to upgrade to a decent wireless system like the Line 6 or Smooth Hound ones, will they also work?
She's the tear that hangs inside my soul forever
