Hi there!

I need some advice on my Marshall TSL602 combo. I've had it for 9 months or so and has been gigged heavily, regularly cranked right up. It has been hissing/rattling for a little while now, it is audible but as you turn the volume up it gets drowned out by the amp. On the clean channel it is fairly obvious and can be picked up by recordings. If anyone has any advice or suggestions please let me know!

Cheers!

Try your spare tubes, probably a preamp tube.

i agree with these guys.

it's likely either a snake has hidden away in your amp or you have a faulty preamp tube.

either way, check for a snake before looking at the tubes.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Well, he's obviously not Australian. Our snakes are quiet, they just sneak up silently and kill you.
