Cable Crackle

Recommended Posts

Sounds like you need to clean the jack on your LP. You can get some "tuner cleaner" from Radio Shack, spray some on a Q-Tip and swab away. (like you are cleaning a metal ear)

Do these cables have semiconducting layers ? These reduce handling noise (crackles) and static. Cables with this layer are sometimes callled 'double shielded'.

 

Cables can also become noisy with time and use - especially if they are trodden on or subject to force.

 

As Yoda says, if you get the noise when you twist the plug at the guitar socket, the contacts could be faulty or need cleaning.
