Dark Terror Hum/Noise

Post by sterrell » Tue Sep 05, 2017 2:16 pm

Hey guys,

I recently got a brand new Dark Terror. I'm really loving this amp. It seems to have some hum/buzz even when the volume is the whole way down. After reading previous threads, I replaced the 12at7 tube for the effects loop. It didn't seem to make much of a difference. I swapped other power tubes and switched out 12ax7's, etc. Didn't seem to change anything. Is this amp just that noisy? Its not a deal breaker, but definitely hums and is louder than my mini rectifier.

One more thing, the amp "pops" when I put it back to standby mode sometimes. Is that normal and/or does that help add any clues to my problems? Thanks guys!

Volume off on any amp should produce no sound. If its new see if your vendor has another to swap out. Otherwise I'd contact Orange support and discuss with them.
