I've had my Bugera 333XL for about 4 months now, and about a week ago it started doing this thing where it'll play fine for a few minutes, then there'll be this semi-loud static that gets louder and louder for about thirty seconds and then goes away for three or four minutes, then comes back... It's definately in the amp; it keeps on making the noise with the guitar cable unplugged from the amp. What could posisbly be wrong?

I'm going to guess and say a tube, maybe? The power tubes are glowing happily away in there just fine, but from what I understand a dieing preamp tube can cause stuff like this to happen?

I've had it in my room the majority of the time I've owned it, with my computer, cell phone, ect... all around it and it's just started doing this.

could also be the wall outlet you are pluged into. could be an older outlet. sometimes older outlets can bring some extra voltage that can cause noise do to a unshielded wire or somthing.
