I have a master volume Galaxie that has developed a problem with intermittent static, for want of a better description, its the sort of sound that may come from a bad pre valve connection. I have installed a 12at7 in v1 and a 12au7 in the PI. It sounds wonderful, except for the static, when it occures. Turning the amp off and on will get rid of it for a while but then it comes back. Any thoughts/ideas would be appreciated
If you have replaced all of the tubes I would try reseating them a few times. As well, I would clean all of the input jacks/speaker jacks with contact cleaner in the event there is some oxidation after occurring.

Agree with Keith, sounds like something is dirty. Eeither sockets or jacks.

Havent replaced all the tubes, It had been suggested that a similar problem was a faulty cap so I have given it to a tech to look at. I did do a clean of the pins valves and reseated them a few times, but not now convinced I did enough preliminary work to fix it myself. The tech is having trouble getting to grips with it. Will have to wait until he works his way through it i guess. Thanks for all comments.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
