  • We swapped amps, no buzz from his amp on my guitar and gear
  • He changed the DC for his pedals

While we thought it was a minor problem, last show we did the buzz was insane and the engineer had to put a gate on his mic. Of course it solved nothing as the buzz was still here while he played.

What did we miss to check ?

From your check list it sounds like there could be a gremlin or two in the pedal board. What happens when you plug your guitar into his pedals and amp? And is it different from when he plugs his guitar into the same?
