Hope you guys can help me out, I am getting a really bad amp hum problem. It is always on regardless of the volume/channel/guitar/ect. I can have my volume at 0 and no guitar plugged in, and it still buzzes. I purchased an Ebtech Hum X to try to get rid of the buzz, but that only made it slightly better. I also run a Decimator in my effects loop to get rid of all other noise but there is still an annoying buzz and it makes me not want to play my amp can you guys help? any ideas?

What amp do you have?

That might be helpful you know.

Sorry bout that, i have a Randall G3 head going through a Behringer 4x12. I also have a small rack with a furman and a sonic maximizer, but i took them out of the loop and there is still a buzz, so they are not the problem. Also forgot to mention, the buzz is in a very low B at around 120 hz

Could be the 12AT7 is busted. That'd be the first thing I'd check. Have you checked all the leads and guitars to eliminate those? Have you tried it in other power outlets or in another house? Different head through the same cab? Different speaker leads?

Loads of things to troubleshoot here.

The AT7 was replaced about 2-3 months ago and it lights up normally, could it still be busted even though it looks fine? The guitars i run through it don't matter, as i said before i could have no guitar plugged in and it still makes the same sound. I tried other outlets, same problem. I tried all the possible combinations of hooking up the head/cab (different cables also) and the problem is still there. Sadly i have no other head to run through the cab so im not sure if the cab is the problem? could that be a possibility?

Tubes can still be bad and look normal. Do you still have the old one? Try it in there and see if it fixes it.

How do you have the head/cab setup? What ohm output on the head and what input on the cab?

I don't have the old one. The tube looks kind of crooked, could it be that the tube isnt put in all the way?

The head and cab are both 8 ohms, i am running one cable in mono. I have tried 2 in stereo, and switched the left and right inputs both on the head and cab. The problem is still there

Yeah of course. Just be careful to line up all the pins when you put it in.
