How to Check if Your Guitar Amp or Lead are Faulty

Got trouble hearing your guitar through your amp?

If you don't know how to check, it can be hard to tell if the problem is with the amp, the guitar or the lead.  Here's a simple test to check if your amp is faulty. 

First, you'll need to check your amplifier. If you're getting a buzzing or hum sound then the amp is producing sound. The amp is probably not the issue.

Second, you'll need to check your cable. If in the first test you hear amp noise, but your cable doesn't pop or hum, then it's a faulty cable.

You can find a new cable here.

Thirdly, If you do get a popping sound from your lead, then it's most likely an issue with your guitar.
