Recently bought a Triamp MKII and having some possible issues that I need some input on.
I don't have another Triamp to compare so if anybody has one I would love your input!
Is it normal for this head to have a some hiss on the crunch channels 2a and 2b?
All channels have some hiss to one degree or another. The clean channels are virtually silent, but still have some. The hiss in the crunch channel is more prominant that I would expect and is easily audible with any amount of master volume. The lead channel 3a is the the loudest (and rather expected) but odddly enough 3b has quite a bit less noise than the crunch channels.
This may be the nature of this amp. Not sure.. I do have a JVM that is dead silent until you get to OD-1 orange and up. Maybe the JVM is just that quiet.
I have swapped out a couple preamp tubes that go to the crunch channel with no luck. Btw..the amp is silent with the channels volumes down so I'm guessing it's preamp hiss.
Thanks for any input!
