So, I have a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and there are two problems with it. Once you turn it on, without anything plugged into it, it produces this almost feedback like tone. Secondly if you kick on the distortion channel it sounds like a motorcycle... any thoughts?
Bad preamp tube possibly.
I am planning on getting it re-tubed... but you think that would be all? It's nothing more major?
Sounds like it to me.
