I just spent a good chunk of the morning searching this site and others for information about ghost notes and cone cry, but I'm still not clear on what is happening here. I noticed this problem during a tune at last nights gig and it was pretty startling. Symptom: I played an oblique bend (upward) on the G and B strings at the 14th fret. Although the bend was an upward bend, I heard a low frequency note going downward, sort of a 'zippering' or farty noise. Rig: Dr. Z Stang Ray running pretty clean with an MI Audio Crunch Box in front of it to get a high gain tone. 2x12 cab with Celestion G12/V30 combo. From what I've described, am I getting cone cry or a ghost note from the amp itself? I've read that Celestions can do the cone cry thing. I should point out though that I heard this same thing once before using the same amp and pedal into a 1x12 housing a Weber Alnico. I've also read that Weber's are known to do cone cry. But this also leaves me wondering if it's the amp itself since I've experienced the noise with two different cabs. Could replacing the power tubes and/or phase inverter help this (if it's the amp)? I set my amp up so that it yields a pretty full and round tone with my Tele bridge pickup. As such, the amp is set to produce more bass than what may be typical. Could the problem simply be that I'm running a high-gain Crunch Box in front of an amp that is set to be too bassy?
