I got a Brake Lite about a month ago and love the versatility it gives. I've noticed that my amp makes a random noise that sounds like a live lead touching something. It happens when I'm not playing and I can't replicate it, it just happens randomly. Has anyone else had this problem?
I have the mountable Brake Lite but have 2 amps so I haven't mounted it properly yet (should have got the SA!), it just sits in my amp on the bottom of the cab. Would that cause this problem?

I've never had that problem....probably best to take a look at the innards of the brakelite and see if you can seen and obvious loose conncections, give a slight tug, make sure things are firm...(unplugged ofcourse:))...actually mount the BL like it should be, and see if the problem persist, it may not be the Bl at all, and something totally unrelated

I don't believe that kind of sound can come from anything the Brake Lite does. Even if you crushed it in a vise while playing, it wouldn't make that kind of sound. I'm thinking you have the confluence of two unrelated events - the acquisition of the Brake Lite and the appearance of a problem that is unrelated.
I took my first amp into the shop and there is nothing wrong with it. I then hooked up the brake lite to my other amp and the same noise happened. I tried the first amp without the brake lite and didn't hear the noise again.
It has happened when the bl is set to 4 with the amp quite high. I have only noticed it when I'm not playing. It sounds as if the brake lite stops attenuating for a second letting the amp noise come through only it's louder than the amp noise without the bl.

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
