    Hey guys, question. I have noticed today that when I play a note on my jet city 100hdm and let it ring out I am getting a crackling sound. Could this be a power tube or pre amp tube issue or could it be something else all together? Thoughts?

    Somewhere with a Friedman Marshall & Les Paul.
    Dirty input/speaker jack or microphonic preamp tube would be a good place to start.
    Might be dirty tube socket too.

    In your bathtub.
    If it has an effects loop, plug a guitar cable between send and return, and see if the noise stops.
