    Hi, tonaight at rehearsal, with a new band, I hook up my pedalboard, see picture, turn on the amp. and a vary vary loud buzz was coming out the amp. after checking all the cable, I realize that the cause was the fuzz, a Fulltone Octafuzz, so I change it with an AM SunFace, and the same loud buzz was coming out, so I end up playng with out fuzz, is not the end of the world but why:confused:. Now, I run the fuzz with battery first in the line, the rest of the pedals are powered with One-Spot. I need to say that I play the pedalboard before going to rehearsal and everithing was just fine.
    I read someware about "floor-noises" issue maybe that is my problem? If yes what is the solution?

    My pedalboard:

    Did you try it with a battery in either of the fuzzes? Just a thought.

    Could it be the cable? If you ended up taking the fuzz's out of the loop then you had an extra one... check it.

    +1. Sounds like one of the cables going to/from the fuzz is the problem. It's definitely not just because they're fuzz pedals...

    I would also be aware of the onespot's placement relative to the fuzzes. I use to run a power strip with two onespots and a couple of wallwarts, and the onespots were some of the worst culprits.

    and of course check the cable.

    I've got so many buzzes in my music room that I'm very conscious about extraneous noise.

    I think that your problem is that Goatkeeper. You might want to disconnect it and sell it to me.:D

    I will check the cable, even if I don`t think that is problem. Blunder stay away from my Goatkeeper.
