||Grounding issue on old Silvertone?|
nice tweedy sounding 50s champ-like 1431 amp
has just joined my musical household,
but with one weird issue:
with 2 diff. guitars, 2 diff. guitar cords,
2 diff. electric outlets/ lines in the house
i get *ungrounded crackle* when i touch metal
parts on the guitars, incl. the strings.
i don't get this on those outlets
with other amps....
i reversed the plug on the 2-wire power cord
but still get the ungrounded-type crackle
from all metal guitar parts....
any thoughts on the problem,
and how to fix it?
i need to solve this problem
to really play the amp.
thanks, bill m.

You must convert that hazard-to-YOUR-life 2-wire cord to a 3-wire. Do it now, before you plug that thing back into the wall.
Then, well, while you have it open, go over all the ground/chassis connections - tighten, resolder, whatever.
but first, get rid of that 2-wire power cord before it kills you.
