The first part of the video shows the amp has a low hum even with volume all the way down and no instrument plugged (it's hard to hear in the video) The second is the hum when my strat is plugged in, I know single coils can be noisy but with other amps when I play you can't hear that hum, you can hear it on this amp whether I'm playing or not.
Normal not normal? I'm new at this so I'm worried about my first big amp purchase. Things I've tried: Different wall plug, turned off wireless and lights etc in room with amp, different cable, hum continues. Thanks for any help.
OK all is well, changed the cab and the noise went away... kinda weird.
chassis screws were probably a little loose. This effects how tight chassis is sealed to the shielding on the cab.

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.
