Guys I was practicing last night and I noticed my amp was making a whistling noise. Like anytime I hit a note or chord the sound was there with all its glory but there was a high almost whistle sound accompanying it. It wasnt that noticable or obnoxious but I noticed it and my bass player did as well. Any idea what it could be? The Amp is A fender Blues Deluxe

How high pitch is this whistle? Is it like a hiss? a squeak? a flat high pitch tone? It could be the cable, the input on the guitar, the input on the amp, or something in the amp.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

its like the same tone and its just high and very prominent as the note or chords fade

Is this with distortion or a clean setting? Any pedals? Has the amp always done this?

You have a toothless hillbilly and a rattlesnake in your amp, put your arm in and try and fish them out!

You may have microphonic valves, so using the pencil test (tap the soft end on the tube lightly and if you hear a thud or noise like that) then you have a case of 'phonic toobz.

im thinkin about replaing all the tubes anyway because i personally dont like grooves. i may put some tugs in it to darken it up a little

+1 to the microphonic tubes. Do the pencil test.

Watch out for high voltage, hillbillys, and rattlesnakes, though.
