Road KING SWOOSHING Sounds

Hey Gang -

took a little break from playing, and now dusting off my gear. My road King sounds absolutely MEAN AND NASTY as it should. What I'm experiencing is as follows:

Its dead silent on channels one and two. They are set to tweed and fat respectively.

On Channel 3 (Modern) and Channel 4 (Modern) I get a swooshing sound, more pronounced on channel 4. When I"m playing, you can't hear it, and the distortion takes over.

I am assuming this is a pre-amp tube but any expertise would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I had this on a JTM45 clone - swapped the pre amps out one at a time until the offender was found - and nice and quiet again. Based on what you reported channel wise I'd hit V2 first.

Bon chance!

Russ
