What I mean by that is are you sure it is the amp and not whatever guitar you are using? Have you tried different cables? Different outlet? Have you plugged straight in without any pedals? Finding noise in a rig is a process, you have to isolate where the noise is coming from.

Once you have guaranteed it is the amp, then we can move on to stuff like tubes or perhaps wiring issues..

This really was a "how long is a piece of string?" question. More info needed.
Does it do it with just guitar straight into amp?
Have you tried other guitars?
Have you tried other cables?
Have you tried it in other rooms/buildings?

You need to narrow it down to what is actually happening otherwise we'd just be pissing in the wind.

Also try turning off everything else in the room; lights, computers, TVs, etc.

Right guys i've tried it straight into the wall and with different cables and its still buzzing so is it a valve problem? it hasn't been revalved in years probably (as i got it off ebay) so would that cure it?

One thing to consider is that a noise gate only works by cutting off the incoming signal when the level falls below a set level. If the amp is the problem a noise gate will not solve the problem. Try several different outlets in other rooms to determine if it's just that circuit that is causing a buzz. If I am not mistaken the Epiphone Wilshire has mini-humbuckers so unless there is a wireing or grounding problem on the guitar itself the pickups shouldn't be the problem. Was the amp always quiet before? Is this a new problem?
#12
No its not a new problem, as far as i can remember its always been noisy and its the same in practice spaces and venues. At the moment i'm using a Squier strat as the input on my Wilshere is broke and its still the same.Its only bothered me now as I have my amp at home and seems much louder if you understand

Strats with single coil pickups can be noisey (that's why they make "humbuckers") but if the amp was always noisey it might just be the amp itself. When you say "noise" is it a hum or static? Can you describe the noise?
#14
I don't really know, its like a buzzing sound, i'm guessing its more like a hum rather than static

What frequency is this hum? If you have an android phone, install gstrings and use that to measure the actual frequency.
Also, is the hum present when nothing is plugged into the amp's input?

Does the hum stop when you are playing?

If you orient yourself in different positions/distance yourself from the amp, what happens?
