Strange whistling noise when reverb on - ideas?

Hi all,

 

I played my first gig with a new band last night, which is really not a new band at all, so much as a reshuffled version of the previous one! Anyway, to get to the point....

 

My gear performed flawlessly with one exception; a strange feedback-like whistling from the speaker when I turned on the spring reverb on my amp. Any idea why that would happen? Do I need my amp servicing?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Tom

What amp are you using?

 

The most likely thing is that the driver tube (assuming tube-driven reverb) needs to be changed. Another possibility is that you're having a problem with a capacitor which in my exp. can cause an odd oscilating "whistle".
