everytime i turn the amp on theres a low humming noise coming from the back of the head and when i switch the amp off standby the humming noise turns thinner ... when the gain + volume is increased so is the humming noise ...
Whats wrong with the amp i just got it today ???

this is even when a guitar isn't plugged by the way

The DSL is a (relatively) high gain amp. High gain amps hum. That's just the nature of the beast, until you start looking at really expensive stuff. You can tame it with a noise suppressor in the FX loop.

Sounds like the transformer warming up, very normal.

if it's through the speakers it could be a bad ground
