Sorry I deleted post by accident...
Today my amp started to make a strange sound, what sounded to me like a form of morse code. After unplugging my guitar and pedals and turning each knob down I still heard it. I then turned amp over and began to check the tubes one by one. One of the 12ax7's did feel a bit loose so I tightened it continued to check the rest of the tubes then fired it back up and it seemed to fix the prob. My question is if what I was hearing stemming from that loose tube? Or could this be a sign of something bigger to come I'm still learning how to troubleshoot with my amp -paranoid parent here... sorry for the novice ?'s Thanks!
In response to your comment taylordaly:
Awhh that would be outstanding!! Hendrix and SRV, in that case it could talk to me all night long. I wish that were the case...thanks

roscoenyc: Almost every piece of gear I have except for my tuner has at least one knob. Those are for adjusting. PSA for the "too much bass" crowd.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
