Hi, I recently moved my blackstar cab to right next to my desk, and being closer to the cab (1 year old) made me notice something.
when i'm playing my guitar (w/ active p.u.'s [if that could be of any importance to the question]) and i strum a string hard there's an impurity/noise/crunchy sound coming along with it, i first thought it was the cab, but if I turn up the volume of my amp (Marshall 100HDFX) and i strum normally, there is no crunch with the sound, and again, if I strum harder, the crunch is back..

Now; is the problem the head or the cab?
Because if it is the head it won't be a big problem because i'm getting a new one at the end of the summer :)

If it's the cab that would be a pain in the ass, because I would have to take the cab to the store (and that's one heavy mtrfkr to drag everywhere).

Thanks :)

1) Marshall cabs aren't that good

2) I like it's sound

3) I'm 17 -> it takes a while to get a decent amount of money to get an expensive amp.
If it could comfort you, i'm buying a JVM 410H at the end of the summer.

well, to be honest, the MG100HDFX's tone never let me down :P i just need to find another amp because due to touring and such, the thing is falling apart (knobs breaking, etc..). and yes, the 410H is an amp to kill for :P

Killing a man would be a lot easier than getting 1350€ though :P
