no, it almost sounds like an out of tune radio.... the post gain for the lead does the same thing too.

Well the 5150's are knowing to be pretty noisy! I might remoned a Isp decimator. And check if theres appliences on around you etc. Little things cause it!

Yeah, computer monitor will do it. Also amps sometimes pick up radio frequencies, I have a Frontman 15g that does it. >_>

alright thanks

Mine's always done it, it's amplifying the hum you get at lower volumes due to appliances, etc added to the distortion. Nothing really to worry about, all my amps do it, I just learned to get used to it. Usually it increases more when turning up the pre amp gain though, try turning down your gain a bit on the preamp, should get rid of some of it at least.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

are you using stock tubes?

After i swapped the stock chinese tubes with a full set of EHX ones, the noise reduced a lot.

imo,
the rhythm channel improved a lot. When using the chinese tubes, i cant seem to get a high gain thing going on, on that channel, it was more of a crunch. But when i swapped to EHX, it does high gain just fine.
