I think that when my valveking got repaired it was not grounded properly, which is evident by the intense deep feedback i get whenever i play. I have tried everything and it is the amp. How hard would it be to open up the amp and properly ground the amp? If someone with experience with this could tell me how to do this it would be much appreciated.

This. It may sound harsh, but loaded capacitors can kill you if you don't know what you are doing.

yeah, i wouldn't say bad grounding would cause feedback. that sounds like another issue. perhaps is causes a weird buzz/ radio signals?

Amps in the old day only had 2 prong plugs and didnt have such issues with grounding and feedback so its probably gonna be something else.

yeah find out what happened and make the guy fix it. it would suck to lose such a great amp....but yes, loaded caps can and WILL kill you unless u know what ur doin.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

Well i just got a 6505, and the same thing is still there on that amp. SO i think it might be a mix of bad house wiring/ ground loop and not actually the amp. Hell, our bassist got electrocuted about a year ago due to a bad ground/wiring in his house, so that could be part of the problem. Thanks for you help and words of caution guys.
