My peavey Valveking 112 is making a soft hissing static-y noise. It kinda sounds like the ocean or the wind blowing in a way. I can still play my guitar through it though. So whats causing this noise?

i have that trouble sometimes and narrowed it down to the outlet, sometimes electrical interference from the outlet can make ur amp hum

This. If you've got the money try getting a power conditioner.

I don't think its the outlet, I've played it many times from the same outlet and has never done that until now. It's not humming, its just a static-y airy noise.

Did you try it with different guitars and cables? No pedals in the chain, just guitar to amp? It could be a bad cable, it could also be the pickups in your guitar. Could also be the tubes, and a bunch of other things! Try changing cables, playing it with a different guitar, and plugging it into the second input.

Yep, I've done it all, even with nothing plugged into the amp, it still makes the sound.

mine doesnt do it all the time, just sometimes it depends on what else is running through the sockets. i found the hiss noise is amplified when i was usin reverb
