My Rt 66 has always hummed for a few seconds at start. Do your heads do this also.? I always figured it was just the Bias or B+ caps charging. It is just for 2-3 seconds when the amp first fires, and then it is perfectly quiet. Thanks
So I figured. I have an old magnatone with a GZ34...it does the same thing. Like I say, with the indirect heat, and the design of the circuit, I just assumed it took a few seconds for the Bias and/or B+ to stabalize. Anybody else.? Thanks
Hmmmmm.......30 views. You guys do not know if your 66 Hums when you first turn it over.?

The noise you talk about comes from the head itself? Mine sounds like a musical shimmering hum. I noticed that all of my amps do the same thing more or less but much, much quieter. I had to hold my ear right on some of the amps to hear the hum. It just last a second or so.

My 66 head has a similar hum, which dissapears or diminishes after it warms up. But it never failed, so I figured it is a normal thing. Any reason to worry?

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.
