I think so...

Was just onto the seller in the USA. Helpful. Said the amp was dead quite in the shop. Looks like on its long journey from the USA to Ireland a tube must have got travel sick. Will try the re-tube experimentation ASAP!

Will post with update soon!

Cheers!

Mostly using the Clean so i'm not really driving the preamp gain hard at all. So Dopeman with your F50 was the clean channel always nice and quie...

In general I don't like hiss and will play this at home a lot...
