I'm sure the Handsonic is just like every other piece of Roland 
electronic drum gear, and it puts out a nice line level.  Make sure the 
output is pretty much all the way up.  Boosting a weak signal is a good 
way to get noise.

I just realized... are you using the front jack on the Repeater?  That 
would do it, as it's designed for lower level stuff like a guitar.  
Also, there's the phono inputs.  Avoid them unless you're using a 
phonograph.  Also, the Repeater is really not made to go into the input 
of a guitar amp.  Electrix recommended that the front input level should 
be around 10:00.

Unless you've got a defective unit, the Repeater should be pretty damn
