    I have a huge problem with radio reception with my gear :( . It is actually not so pronounced when using synths or recording from synths :p , but it is really brutal when playing/recording guitar or bass tracks :evil: - depending on the settings on my amps (eg Fender Bassman plus speaker cabinet, or Marshall plus Fender Rhodes satellite cabinets), I can hear more of the radio than of the guitar.

    And I am already using pretty good cables! Any advice, eg specific cables/brands, any kind of shielding that may helps?

    Also, going forward with building my recording studio: There are some radio towers, but they're about 2+ miles away, and I wouldn't have thought they'd have an impact... do I need, like, lead panels or similar stuff to reduce the impact?

    Any tips are appreciated!

    It's the pick ups in the guitars and bass....have had that problem before as well and it all depends on where you are aiming the guitar!

    Some pickups are more prone to picking up RF then others.
