Ok so I just bought my first Guitar tube head. and when its not even hooked up to my cab its making some weird noises like a clicking/hum type deal. It is very faint but like i said there is no amplification hooked up so its coming directly form the innerworkings of the amp itself. it this something to be concerned about?

What brand is it?

Some companies put a tiny little goblin in their amp heads to make sure the tubes and components are in working order. He was probably just clinking around and checking things out, no worries

You can't run a head without a cab, if you've done that, you've probably just damaged your amp, badly.
Wait.

TS, you just got your first valve amp head and you run it WITHOUT A CAB?! way to go, that sound is probably the circuit board frying. this is half stack 101: NEVER USE THE HEAD WITHOUT A CAB, unless you know how to properly use a dummy load. i doubt you used a dummy load though.

will be looking forward to your future 'new amp' thread.

1 im not an idiot and i know not to do that. I just heard it when i was on standby so i turned it on without it plugged in to my cab and it still made the same noise.

2 I was only wondering because my Mesa bass head doesn't do that when on standby.
