View Full Version : Popping Noise

What can I do to prevent all my latching footswitch type pedals from making a big "popping" noise when I engage them? I know this is an amp question - specifically a Kendrick 80-watt tweed amp, because it's happening with numerous pedals.

You mean effect pedal popping? That is an issue with the pedal, not the amp. Usually the fix is either to rewire the switch or to add a small capacitor to reduce the pop when switched.

But it's literally happening with every pedal!

Could it be a wall wart problem? I'm facing the same with my Clark Beaufort.

Aha! Now how do I fix that, lift the ground on the amp?

You should never lift the ground from the amp.
