My Amplifier (Marshall VS65) buzzes ridiculously loud when i turn it on, as if the volume is on 7.

It isn't feedback, and all of the nobs are turned right down onto zero. When it's turned on it makes a dusty cracking noise. It makes the excact same noise, excact same volume wether its on overdrive or clean.

Can anyone help me out?

Its got a pre-amp valve but doesn't have that 'dead valve' tone. And also, I know people who've used the same amp as a SS and it sounds fine without the valve. So can anyone help my Buzzing problem?

PS: There are No rips in the speaker

Is it only when you turn it on or does the buzzing go away?

Are you running your guitar straight into the amp? If you are try using a different cable, it could be the cable is bad. However it's most likely a grounding issue.

NEVER turn your amp on if you don't have your guitar plugged in, you'll wreck it that way.

no, you can turn an amp on without a guitar plugged in... you shouldn't, however, turn an amp on without a speaker plugged in.

anyway, sounds like a bad connection, or just noise from a dirty outlet. or it could be a microphonic preamp tube.

How about you try plugging your guitar in first and see if it goes away. It could also be a loose tube but I'm pretty sure it's because you don't have your guitar plugged in.

Hmm, I thought that would for sure be it. It sounds like your pre amp tube might be loose, try taking it out and putting it back in.

So you tried it without the valve and it sounds clean? Or you know people that have tried it without the valve and it sounds clean?
