Recommended Posts

issue: making a half white noise/half motorboat....type of noise...its pretty quiet though....hidden behind playing. it does not increase when the amp volume/master vol increases. its sporadic too. seems to almost go in bursts, lasting 2 seconds to a minute.


- i have tried changing the original GT pre-amp tubes.

didn't solve anything.

- i have not tried the power tubes.

seems to be a preamp issue.


The pre-amp slot next to the el84s seems to be the culprit.


i tried 'tapping' it with a nail file. when i held it against the tube....the noise disappeared.



whats going on?
