I just got my first tub amp. I can hear a ticking sound coming from it. IT's not very lound, i don't hear it while playing, but i hear it when not playing, it's a ticking sound, it's rapid and doesn't stop, is that normal?
I have a similar problem but it's intermittent. I'm pretty sure it dirty power or interference from one of the appliances in the house. It happens regularly every 2 or 3 seconds. We had a bit of a jam here the other night & it wasn't there. If I ever get a power conditioner it will probably fix it.
Try plugging it into another circuit in your house and if you have it next to a tv either turn the tv off or move the amp; you will get interference from a television. If this doesn't work, you mentioned that it is a new amp, take it back, it is not uncommon to have a bad tube in a new amp.
