Problem with Fender Excelsior

Hey guys!

Ive had this amp for a couple months, and I truly love it!
Problem is that when I first got it, certain frequencies I played would make something within ring. It was no big deal, but now that happens more often than not, no matter what note I am playing!

Could this be the tubes? Any ideas?

Thanks so much.

Could be. Did you buy it from a store?

Take it back and have it replaced/repaired. There's apparently been quite a few problems with these amps.

Tube warranty runs out pretty quick IIRC.

Check it out with the place you bought it from.

Hey thanks guys! I appreciate it tons.

I got it from Steve's music and naturally I kept the receipts.
Unfortunately, that's all the way in Toronto. Maybe they would mail me some replacements?

Thanks!

Give them a call or an email with a scan of the receipt.

^ yeah contact them before making a trip.

if you're lucky, new preamp tubes will fix it. they won't necessarily, though. i returned mine because it rattled (it had other problems with it, too). rattle seems to be a recurring theme.
