Rockerverb MK2 Combo - Clean Hum/Buzz normal or not?

Post by josh2372 » Wed Sep 06, 2017 1:41 pm

Hi

So I bought a 2nd hand Rockerverb mk2 combo, works and sounds great!

I know there is going to be some sort of hum/buzz on the drive channel
but i'm also having identical hum/buzz on the clean channel.

This also happens with nothing plugged in and the amp is plugged into a power conditioner,
I'm unsure if this is normal or not? or whether is could be a dying tube or transformer?

I don't mind it on the drive channel as when you play on the drive you cant hear it, but on the clean channel its very distracting.
Iv tried noise gates in various set ups an nothing changes

I can upload a video of the hum tonight so you can get a better idea

Im new to this forum so not sure if this is something that's common and been answered,
But would be very great full for any help or info on this


Thanks
Josh

I wouldn't say its a common complaint. I'd check the tubes first.
