I have a B-52 tube amp, and when it's on, it makes a weird hissing noise. It comes and goes randomly, whether I'm playing or not. Does anyone know whats up with this?

Feedback? Microphonic tubes? Although i dont know whether the noise would come and go if it was that..
#3
it's not feedback. It's like hissing and popping noises.

try changing cord? maybe the cord is bad. maybe not. idk

EDIT: yeah the input jack on guitar/amp could be messed up
When i die, i wanna be burried upside down...so that anybody who doesnt like me can kiss my ass.

it's not the cord, because it does it when nothing is plugged in too.

yeah.
you could open it up and make sure that everythings fine inside
or if you dont trust yourself, take it in to get looked at.
i reccomend #2 only because that way you can be sure it wont get any more effed up inside

that sounds like the classic symptoms of a preamp tube going.
