Then, check the wiring. My wiring is a mess, I saw that some ground wires could actually touch the hot ones hahah. Maybe something is too close to each other there. I mean, the guitar is only dead quiet when I touch the strings, or else I get considerable hum and noise (distortion)
try some contact cleaner on all the ins and out of the amp. just spray a little on the end of the cable and put it in all the ins and outs and wiggle it a bit. then let it st for a few minutes and test it.
Yes, in the effects loop so it's after the preamp. My chain in the video had the reverb added after everything else, so it will probably sound a little less insane, but an electro harmonix unit with the hall mode will probably do it. Only the three knob version is probably capable of it.
