Well every like 5-10 seconds I hear this small pop sound, kind of like if you patted your guitar strings near the pickup. It's quiet but noticeable. It's a peavey vk-112. Have any idea what the problem may be? Thanks

Could be a badly seated tube. Pull them out and plug them back in again. Spray some contact cleaner on the pins as well if you have any. NOT WD40, proper electrical contact cleaner.

+3.1415

the odds are thats it, but i just had a similar issue (rather odd) but it was a bad connection to the reverb tank. but the amp i was working

could do the pencil test on the tubes after you reseat and use contact cleaner.

Well if I look into the aluminum cylinders that holds the preamp tubes it does appear that the phase inverter tube is sticking out a bit farther than the other two tubes. Could that be the problem?

So if I just push on the tube a bit it would go if fully?

Are you sure your amp cord is all the way plugged in?

Because if you don't put the plug in all the way, but still have it about halfway in or more, you will hear the described noise.

Its more than likely what the other posters have said.

I had a similar occurrence when I got my Blackstar HT5, the problem was a bad connection on the earthing wire on my strat. The problem was that where I placed my picking hand, my finger regularly brushed one of the screws on my middle pickup, leading to me earthing the connection and my amp popping. Following a rewire, the noise stopped

Go with cathbard's suggestion first.

But you bought the VK used right? If so you may need some new tubes and it is always good to have a few spare 12ax7's on hand just incase. JJecc83 work nice in your amp and are fairly cheap ($10-$13 each)

I had a similar situation recently where someone had daisy chained a couple of 4 way pin plugs together. It was clear when i tried the amp back home one of those 4 ways must have been faulty, as once i plugged it direct to a wall socket the pops disappeared.

Even when it's not plugged in it happens.

Yup, I bought it used. Should I buy all the same three JJecc83 tubes or get different kinds? What about power tubes?

EDIT: I can't fix the problem this second, at school.

You can get the JJecc83 again, I wasn't sure of what was in it. JJ are fine for power tubes also
