Brand spankin new, but when cranked up to the full 15 watts and normal bedroom practice volume I can hear a hiss on a clean channel. Lowering the volume eliminates the hiss...my pos tiny crate amp never did this unless I cranked it all the way. Should I upgrade to the vt30 to avoid the hiss??

damnit i put this in electric guitar...

haha just ask a moderater to move it.
If you just bought it, take it back and ask the repair guys from the place you bought it from.
It may be normal, but I doubt it.
I haven't had much experience with this amp so.....

-Gibson LP VM
-Silvertone Kentucky Blue
-MXR CC Delay
-Ibanez TS-9
-Egnater Rebel 20
-Avatar 1x12

My rig is simple
Haha. UG's Chuck just said chuck. haha
You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.
I have the AD15VT, the predecessor, and there is a slight hiss in mine too, it's a noisy circuit at high volumes, but then again if your cranking it to max you need a more powerful amp anyways.

PRS Custom 24
Yamaha RGX A2
PRS Custom 24 SE

this is normal happens in my vt15 as well. if you visit voxforums, they explain how.
Ibanez RG1570 (2009)
VOX Valvetronix VT15
I'm a freshie here~ PM me tips
slight is normal yes, does the amp have a noisegate function? If your unsure I would take it to a shop and get it checked
