Could be a lot of things. It would help to know what power amp you're using, how everything is wired, and what the pre and power amp settings are.

Possible causes:
Tubes
Connectors
Circuit problem
Ground loop
Induced noise from nearby noise source
Guitar/pickups
Settings
Other
Mini Rectifier blue LED
Recto 2x12 Vertical
Recto 2x12 Wedge
