Mine has a nice hum in the left channel, anybody else?
Just got mine today, i'll give it a go
No hiss but it seems to distort really easily. Not sure if its my dodgy old pair of HD555's or new tubes or what. This is my first tube amp.
After reading about it seems this amp uses some pretty shit components which induce the hum. If you can replace 2 of the capacitors it will fix the issue.
Either that or the tube is a bit shit. Could be either of the 2. Tubes are cheap and theres better replacement ones out there so maybe give that a go first.
mine hums with any tubes other than the ones that came with it for about 100hrs. I did the fritz mod (solder in 2 220 caps) and it fixed it
